    It has caffeine, maybe reduces iron.

    It's not the caffeine that reduces the iron IIRC.

    It's not the caffeine, its the phenols or something like that, or tannins, heck I don't remember. lol Mittir posted about it before.

    I see, that's bad. At least it doesn't have vitamin C which enhances absorption of iron.

    And caffeine is one of them. But I'd find it plausible that you get even more of those compounds in coffee which has not just caffeine.

    disappointing to hear if that is the case...there are a lot of knockoffs that are colas with cane sugar, even an organic one or two...but coke, its so meaningfull...simply because its coke...and they use coca extract

    you think maybe the cane sugar is just hydrolyzing under all the bottled up osmotic and Co2 pressure...and that's why the sugars are free molecules? Or is it positively HFCS

    HFCS is 45/55, I forget which is higher. I think it's invert sugar, even a weak acid over a period of time can hydrolyze sucrose. And mislabeling food is no small matter. :2cents

    There's tons of other brands that use cane sugar but none of them have the same kick as Mexican coke... maybe that's because of all the acid or the fact that I was unwittingly drinking HFCS all along, no idea.

    The bottler is claiming that the kind imported into the US will keep using sugar:
