COCA-COLA-INGREDIENT
Coca-Cola to drop controversial ingredient from all drinks, not just Powerade

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Monday, May 5, 2014 12:38 PM EDT
NEW YORK


Coca-Cola says it will drop a controversial ingredient from a variety of its drinks, not just Powerade.

The Atlanta-based company says brominated vegetable oil is still being used in some flavors of Fanta and Fresca, as well as several citrus-flavored fountain drinks.

The ingredient — which Coca-Cola says prevents certain ingredients from separating — had been the target of a petition by a Mississippi teenager. The ingredient will be replaced with others that fill the same function.

The Associated Press reported Sunday that Coca-Cola is dropping BVO from Powerade, following a similar move by PepsiCo's Gatorade last year.

Although companies stand by the safety of BVO, they say such changes are in response to customer feedback. Several companies have changed recipes as people look for foods they feel are natural.
