Which Soft Drink Has More Sugar? Coke Vs Red Bull Vs Powerade

Soft drinks are regularly cited as one of the top causes of obesity and tooth decay in Australia: yet we still quaff them by the gallon. You know it’s bad for you – you may have even tried to quit – but that highly addictive sugar hit will always have you in its thrall.

This infographic breaks down the sugar content in five popular drinks; from Coke to Powerade. The ranking might actually surprise you. (Who would have thought a certain iced tea would be worse than Red Bull?)

Now, it should be noted that the below infographic was produced by Australian beverage company Nexba to spruik its range of sugar-free products. However, there’s nothing suss about the content: indeed, the same information is readily available on each product’s nutrition label.

Nevertheless, it’s still interesting to see them ranked together like this – we never would have guessed that the now-defunct Pepsi Next contained more sugar than full-strength Red Bull, for example. (Albeit in a lager serving size, but who drinks half a can?)
