After writing about the artificial sweeteners yesterday, I came across a story about PepsiCo and their new line of products called ‘Next’. According to the company, the drinks are being marketed to “a segment of consumers who are resistant to both regular, full-sugar cola and diet cola offerings. These consumers love the taste of Pepsi but they don’t believe you can achieve full-flavor taste with a diet cola. The launch of Pepsi NEXT is intended to fulfill this unmet need in the category.”
The way Pepsi plans on making this happen is by using less sugar while maintaining their trademark sweetness. In lieu of real sugar or strictly HFCS, the ‘Next’ generation of Pepsi has not just one dangerous sweetener, but it has FOUR sweeteners! It is slated to contain HFCS, aspartame, sucralose, and acesulfame potassium. AND to offset the extra sweetness, there is more sodium included compared to regular Pepsi.
