Does Coke Zero Have Sugar?

Coke Zero, from the Coca-Cola manufacturer, does have sugar. The amount is very low, but there is indeed sugar found in Coke Zero.

Coke Zero is known for containing no calories!  If this is true, however, why is there sugar found in the drink?  This is an conundrum that has nutritionists and food experts arguing until they are blue in the face.

Coke Zero advertises that there are no calories and no sugar, however, there is 0.5 grams of sugar found in the drink per serving.  For this reason, nutritionists state that the advertising is misleading because there is, in fact, sugar in the beverage.

Coca Cola argues that there is not enough sugar, or that the trace amount found in the drink is not enough to report.

This seems to be conflicting information, but for those watching their weight and restricting the amount of sugar they consume, the drink does not offer much in terms of sugar.

Drinking Coke Zero in moderation should not cause you to gain weight. There is just not enough sugar found in the drink to pack on the pounds.

As with any food or beverage, moderation is best when trying to lose weight and keep it off.  Drinking the soda in excess can cause problems and make it more difficult to lose weight.  However, since Coke Zero does have little sugar to worry about, you can still drink it and lose weight.

    Recently, my diabetic husband was admitted to a nursing facility. He is Type 1 diabetic and I started to take him Coke Zero every day because he said he really loved it. Then, one day this week I saw Coke Zero Cherry and took that to him. During the night after drinking this his blood sugars soared high into the 500 levels and was almost taken to the ER.
    I am confused….if this product does in deed have SUGAR in it whether a little or a lot, should something be put on the can about diabetic intake?
    It mad me angry that we were not warned………
