FDA warns Coca-Cola over nutritional claims for Diet Coke Plus

The Food and Drug Administration issued a warning letter to The Coca-Cola Company, objecting to the labeling of their Diet Coke Plus product which describes the drink as “Diet Coke with Vitamins and Minerals.”

Regulators said the beverage does not have enough nutrients to justify the use of the word “plus” in its name. According to the agency, foods labeled “plus” must have at least 10 percent more nutrients than comparable products. Additionally, the FDA said it is inappropriate to add extra nutrients to “snack foods such as carbonated beverages.” To read the complete warning letter click here .
