    We all know the whole debate about cola having no or traces of alcohol. Well this new french study shows that there are minute traces of alcohol in the bottles of many leading brands of cola.

    My question is how is there alcohol in cola if there is none added or yeast added? How is that natural fruits have alcohol? How is it that juice has alcohol?

    Im quite ignorant about this and would appreciate some education.

    I notice the article does't actually link to the research paper itself. or specify what publication the results were in.

    The story itself is already at least 16 months old.

    How is that natural fruits have alcohol?
    Natural fruits. Natural fermentation.

    Fruit that is ripe is already on the verge of observable fermentation, just smell it. Fruit that is a bit soft or "over-ripe" has already started a bit of fermentation, just smell it. And it's a bit more than 0.0001%.

    I don't. Why would anyone care about trace amounts of alcohol (or anything much).

    Natural fermentation. There are yeasts all around us. This is how man discovered how to make beer, wine and bread.

    I would take anything the Mail says about anything with a pinch of salt. Or, more realistically, assume it is untrue.

    They are famous for bogus food/health stores. At one point they ran the two stories "Chocolate causes cancer!!!" and "Chocolate cures cancer!!!" in the same issue.

    Someone else described the Mail as " the most disgusting of Britain's trashier newspapers — famous for indulging the tastes of racists, sexists, xenophobes, and the poor". I find it hard to disagree.

    what a iresponsible statement. Muslims dont drink any drink with even traces of alcohol. if it is proved that coke uses alcohol then their sales will go definitly down.

    Don't be ridiculous. People can choose not to drink intoxicating drinks, but they can't avoid alcohol completely, and there is no reason they should. There are trace amounts of alcohol in fruit (and pretty much anything less with sugar in). There are trace amounts of alcohol in the air. The human body produces alcohol.

    Coke does not "use" alcohol in their product. Even the Daily Mail didn't claim that. (Mind you, I'm surprised the Mail didn't suggest that it should be compulsory for all food and drink to contain traces of alcohol and pork.)

    Many years ago I read an article about a herd of drunk elephants.
    It seems that they had eaten some yeasty nuts which had continued fermenting in their stomachs.

    Fruit contains sugar.
    Fruit contains yeast.
    Yeast consumes sugar.
    Yeast produces alcohol.

    I don't think the sales are going down... even if they put alcohol on it which they don't do... the bigger problem actuallyu is caffeine much more unhealthy than those traces of alcohol I forget its in the ARABIC coffee too...

    I have never seen any evidence of significant harm from caffeine. It can have some, usually short-term, effects on blood pressure, for example. But I'm not aware of any great health risks. On the other hand, it appears to have some beneficial effects which may outweigh any harm done.

    Weirdly, it does seem to be one of those things that people think they should avoid for some reason.

    blood pressure like you said... its can be a big problem... (that's why they first always look at blood pressure) but there are also other problem so you cant sleep and get sleeping problems from there one problem excalates... but naturaly we can even have some poison even drinking arsenicum in small amounts you can live without problems for years...
