Diet Coke contains: -Carbonated water -Caramel color -Aspartame (A sugar-replacement sweetener which is the basis of NutraSweet and Equal, and has been discovered to cause harm to the brain and nervouse system, causing anything from spasms or shooting pains, numbness, tinnitus, depression, impaired vision and mempory loss to dizzyness. Indeed, the term 'Aspartame Disease' has been coined to describe these maladies. Dangerous stuff, that.) -Phosphoric Acid (Though this is used to remove rust in a more concentrated form, there are such relatively little and more dissapated amounts in coke that there is no need to get in a tizzy about it. Though, If you are a pretty regular, heavy drinker of this, or any soda, consider using a straw, which will keep the majority of this further from your teeth, since it can cause damage to your enamel. Ew!) -Citric Acid -Potassium Benzoate (protects the taste) -Natural flavors (to give it that yummy snap.) -Caffeine (Sweet, sweet caffeine...) All in all, Diet Coke is basically chemicle soup, and probobly something that nature never intended that any living thing consume as nourishment. I am drinking one right now. Chao!, Tricia Years ago I worked for Pepsi/7Up and the recipe is secret although the above poster gave you a good low-down. In the 30s - 40s Soda Jerks would put the coke-like syrup in a glass and add soda. I just heard also on the news that Coke (Pepsi will be following suit) will be adding Vitamin C and a few other things to keep up with the new health standards of the U.S. and Canada. Mmmmm?
