Pepsi’s New Offering – Pepsi Next
I discovered a great Android app the other night called Fooducate.They also have a rather interesting blog exposing some of the crap that food corporations feed the public.
While perusing this evening I saw this article on the Fooducate Blog: Pepsi Next : The Worst of 2 Drinks, Combined into One .
40% less sugar the advertisement says. But on closer observation this is just a bit of clever marketing from PepsiCo attempting to cloak the fact their drink is still rife with sugar and artificial sweeteners.
[sugar] is still the second ingredient after water… There are still 4 teaspoons of sugar in a 12 ounce can.
Yip, that’s a lot of sugar. But wait there’s more…
Pepsi Next has simply replaced the sugar… [with] aspartame, acesulfame potassium, and sucralose.
Nice, so not only do you get about 17 grams of refined, highly processed sugar, you get a cancer causing cocktail of artificial sweetness.
Pepsi Next will not be having its day in my fridge!
