The ingredients of Coca Cola have always been a mystery. Now, a website “Thisamericanlife.org” claims to have uncovered the soft drink's top secret recipe which is said to be guarded 24 hours a day in a vault in Atlanta,.
The recipe contains 8oz Alcohol which is strictly banned in Islam. Following the disclosures it is going to be very difficult for CocaCola to market in Islamic countries.
The recipe reportedly contains the exact measures of all the different oils needed for Coca Cola's secret ingredient, Merchandise 7X. Despite making up only one per cent of the drink's total formula, Merchandise 7X is though to give the popular soft drink its unique taste.
The secret recipe includes fluid extract of Coca 3 drams USP; citric acid 3 oz; caffeine 1oz; sugar 30 (it is unclear from the markings what quantity is required); water 2.5 gal; lime juice 2 pints 1 qrt; vanilla 1oz; and caramel
1.5oz or more to colour 7X flavour.
The recipe also includes alcohol 8oz; orange oil 20 drops; lemon oil 30 drops; nutmeg oil 10 drops; coriander 5 drops; neroli 10 drops; and cinnamon 10 drops.
