HIGH ON SOFT DRINK
Colas have traces of alcohol,says study

London: Tests have revealed that more than half of leading soft drinks,like Coke and Pepsi,contain traces of alcohol.The revelation will cause concern among those who choose the carbonated soft drink for religious,health or safety reasons.
According to tests carried out by the Paris-based National Institute of Consumption more than half of leading colas contain the traces of alcohol,the Daily Mail reported.These include the brand leaders Coca-Cola and Pepsi Cola,while it is mainly only cheap supermarket versions of the drink which are alcohol-free.
French magazine 60 Million Consumers,published the results of the tests in its latest issue.They suggest that the alcohol levels are as low as 10mg in every litre,and this works out at around 0.001% alcohol.
But the figures will still be enough to upset the thousands of Muslims who regularly drink Cola because their religion forbids them from drinking alcohol.
Those who are teetotallers and drink Coke regularly will also be worried,as will those who choose it as an alternative to alcohol when they are driving.Of 19 colas tested,the nine which did not contain alcohol were made by brands including Auchan,Cora,Casino,Leader Price and Man U-Cola.
Ten which had traces of alcohol in them included Coca-Cola,Pepsi Cola,Coca-Cola Classic Light and Coke Zero.Michel Pepin,scientific director for Coca-Cola France,acknowledged that It is possible that traces of alcohol come from the process of making Coca Cola according to its secret recipe.He,however,insisted that Coca-Cola drinks were provably soft and recognized as such by the government authorities in which they are sold.
A spokesman for Pepsi acknowledged that the Pepsi Cola recipe does not contain alcohol. ANI
