Does The Coca-Cola Company have any reduced-calorie or diet soda without aspartame?
Yes, we do have diet soda without aspartame! Two options you can try are Diet Coke with SPLENDA® or Coca-Cola Life. Coca-Cola Life is sweetened with a blend of cane sugar and Stevia leaf extract. It has less sugar and 35% fewer calories than Coca-Cola, but with a Coca-Cola taste people love.

Why do you use aspartame?
While sugar in moderation is fine, too much sugar isn’t good for anyone. That’s why we make reduced- and no-sugar versions of many of the drinks you love. We want to give you great-tasting choices with fewer or no calories. Aspartame helps us do that.
Is aspartame safe?
Yes. Aspartame is safe. It is one of the most thoroughly researched ingredients in the world.
Science and health professional organizations have affirmed sugar substitutes, like aspartame, are safe. So have food safety authorities, like the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
However, if you have the rare hereditary disorder phenylketonuria (PKU), you should strictly limit your intake of phenylalanine. This is a common amino acid found in aspartame. If we use aspartame, we say on our bottles and cans that there is phenylalanine so please check closely.
Have questions about PKU or your diet? Please talk to your doctor.
