'Mexicoke' to continue using cane sugar

Fans of “Mexican Coke” in the United States need not worry about losing the cane sugar that sweetens their favorite drink.

Americans who buy the glass bottles of Coke exported from Mexico have been dismayed by recent online reports that an independent bottler that supplies the drinks planned to switch from sugar to fructose to cut costs. Here, Coke is sweetened with high-fructose syrup, which has made bottles of “Mexicoke” a hot commodity.

Arca Continental, the Mexican bottler in question, stressed in a statement that it has no plans to change the sweetener for the “Coca-Cola Nostalgia” bottles it exports to the United States.
