FDA Warns Coca-Cola over Diet Coke Plus Claims

The US Food and Drug Administration has warned the Coca-Cola company that it’s not appropriate to fortify snack foods with vitamins, and has asked the company to change its marketing plan.

Diet Coke Plus has been billed as a good source of B3, B6, B12, zinc, and magnesium.

At TGFC we do not advocate drinking soda of any kind , diet or otherwise, and do not share the view of the Coca-Cola Company.

What do you think? Is it a good idea to add vitamins and minerals to something that millions of people drink every day, whether the product is good for them or not?

Would it be a better idea to encorage consumers to drink more fresh fruit juices and water instead?

We welcome your comments.
