Nutrition & Dieting/Which replacement for Diet Coke is better?
Expert: Stacy Ostrager, M.A.,M.S. - 12/9/2015
Question Dear Stacy,
Thank you for offering your time to us here. I've finally weaned myself off of Diet Coke (after 40-something years)! and I'm testing two different drinks, but don't know which one is overall a better drink:
The latter has more vitamins, but it also has sucralose and mannitol. Which do you think is better, overall?
Answer Hi Elizabeth,
I think that the ITO tea would be a better alternative. The reason is that it does not list any additives, chemicals, or coloring. The Sparkling Ice, while it has zero calories, is filled with artificial ingredients. The tea is high in caffeine so please keep that in mind. Hope this helps to answer your question.
