If you have been pulled over for DUI and the officer asks if you had anything to drink, consider that alcohol has been found to be in soda such as coca cola.
Trace amounts of alcohol can be found in popular soft drinks including Coca-Cola and Pepsi, according to new findings by the National Institute of Consumption in Paris.
The research, published in the French magazine 60 Million Consumers, found small amounts of alcohol measuring around 0.001 percent per liter in 19 popular sodas around the world. Generic supermarket brands, however, were alcohol-free."
"Coca-Cola’s web site is up front about alcohol levels in its products:
Trace levels of alcohol can occur naturally in many foods and beverages. Governments and religious organizations have recognized that such minute levels are considered acceptable in nonalcoholic foods and beverages.
Coca-Cola has no plans to change the recipes for any of its products."
