Coca Cola is the universal soft drink and one of the most recognizable brand names in the world. The recipe of this soft drink is locked in a vault in Atlanta, Georgia.
What effect does Coca Cola have on teeth?
Coke and Teeth Here is input from Wiki s contributors: I'm a nutrition major, and in my bacteriology lab, for our final we have to do an independent study. I decided to experiment on how particular sodas promote bacterial growth in the mouth to produce a very favorable environment for cavity development. I tested Regular Coke, Diet Coke, Grape Fanta, Orange Fanta, Ginger Ale, and Sun Drop. Regular Coke by far had the most bacterial growth, which was surprising since it did not contain the most sugar. My study proved that regular Coke would lead to more rapid tooth decay than any of the other sodas that were tested. I'm still in the process of experimenting and finding a conclusion as to why the bacterial growth produced by Coke (innoculated with the same oral bacteria just as all the others were) was far beyond all the others. ATOMIC. Coke seems to be a brew designed to create caries. It is not only the sugar, it is also the Phosporic acid used as acidulant. Is the same acid we, the dentists, use for etching the enamel prior to the insertion of a composite (white) filling. And it works. Phosporic acid corrodes the surface of the enamel, clearing the way for the microorganisms. Several dentistry books have wonderful color pics of severely destroyed teeth withe the next text: "The patient drank too much sodas", or "The patient was a heavy Coca-Cola drinker". Diet sodas contain the same acid as well. Coca Cola seems to cause cavities. It seems like that coca cola will cause holes in someones teeth and reduce the size by a little bit and change the white or slightly yellowish color to something else. The acid additives in soda drinks attack your tooth enamel. Non-cola is worst, cola next. Root beer is best. If in doubt what Coca Cola or Pepsi can do, take a cloth and clean off the windshield of your car, and also try the engine in a spot! If it can clean all that grime off think of what it does not only to your teeth, but your stomach. Yes, Coke and Pepsi have a high content of sugar in it. I have a friend who is addicted to Coca Cola. She is only 32 and the result is she has false teeth now, it also ruins your gut. I would try and stop drinking so much, all sodas can have this affect but coke is the worst one. I just woke up to the fact that even diet coke can ruin teeth. I had pretty healthy teeth most of my life but had started a habit for one year to drink diet coke because the office vending machine was my only drink/food supply. Well, what a surprise. I suddenly had yellowish teeth and caries. I've been drinking Coke since I was, well quite young, I am almost fifty years old. I just I had my teeth cleaned and the dental hygenist told me that she was suprised that my teeth were in as good a condition as they were especially seeing how I have not been brushing as often as I should (You can never brush as often as you should if you listen to them) HA-HA. I might add that it has been a couple of years since I had my teeth cleaned, four maybe. Mind you I have been painfully honest with you. Yes I have been Blessed by GOD with good teeth and I should not abuse them however the truth remains I've been dring Coke (often times multiple bottles bottles a day) for nearly forty years I still have most all of my teeth and according to the hygentist I have very nice teeth. I have been in dentistry for 15 years and have seen first hand what sodas can do to your teeth. Everytime you take a drink of a soda you get 20 seconds of acid attack on your teeth. Which in time will eat away at your enamel and then cause a cavity. If you have to have your daily soda it is best to drink it all at once and not to sip on it throughout the day. Also its best to brush after consuming your soda if possible, if not try to swish with some water. This goes for any kind of sweets (candy, sports drinks, fruit juices etc.) This is the same for diet or regular sodas. Coca cola, whether it is diet or regular, has a very negative effect on enamel by increasing the acid pH in the mouth for a period of at least an hour. The increased acid strips the natural protective layer on your teeth (pellicle) and the enamel begins to slowly lose its natural minerals and therefore breakdown, causing decay. I am a dental hygienist and have seen young people whose teeth are great, go away to college, and come home with several areas of new decay because of coca cola consumption on a daily basis. I did a science fair project on this. I put Coke and different beverages into cups with eggshells and left them there for 5 days. The coke one is not the worst but it already has a cavity. For a science fair project, we did what stains teeth more, coffee or Coca Cola. Well coffee actually stains teeth while Coca Cola just adds on layers of sugar and plaque, and slowly staining it. Coffee on the other hand, stains teeth, and the less time you spend drinking coffee, and if you rinse your teeth out immediately after drinking it, you're most likely to have better teeth, and not have coffee smile. If you find that you have lost enamel and are vulnerable to cavities go and take a look at the dental gel at Sillyscarlet on eBay. This gel emulates our saliva which repairs enamel. Enamel can repair itself just like bones can.

What are the ingredients in Coca-Cola?
The Coca-Cola formula is The Coca-Cola Company's top-secret recipe for Coca-Cola. The formula is considered one of the most closely-held trade secrets in modern business. Only a few top Coca-Cola employees are reported to know or have access to the formula. Merchandise 7X is the "secret ingredient" in Coca-Cola. The ingredient has remained a secret since its invention in 1886. The description of the ingredient is kept in a security vault in a bank in Atlanta, Georgia. Only two people in the company know the formula at any one time. Published accounts say it contains or once contained sugar, caramel, caffeine, phosphoric acid, coca leaf and kola nut extract, lime extract, flavoring mixture, vanilla and glycerin. Alleged syrup recipes vary greatly, and Coca-Cola reluctantly admits the formula has changed over the decades. Officially, from the label itself, as all products are required to list them: Carbonated water High fructose corn syrup (and/or cane sugar*) Caramel color Phosphoric acid Natural flavors (the secret part) Caffeine *Some minor changes, such as the sugar used and the amount of each ingredient, will occur between regions. the ingrdients are love, spice, and everything nice. "Coke" is the Trademark name for Coca-Cola. The carbonated beverage contains water, sugar (or corn syrup), phosphoric acid, flavorings, caramel color, and caffeine. (The slang term coke means cocaine, an opiate crystalline powder that is often diluted with other chemicals.)

How much percentage of acid is there in coke?
The pH or acid level of Coca Cola Classic is 2.5. For perspective, pure water is neutral at a pH of 7. Pure hydrochloric acid is extreme at a pH of 0. At the other end is at a pH of 14. You stomach is too acidic for all but the hardiest of living things to survive at a pH of 1.8-2. The higher the pH the more alkaline or basic. The lower the pH the more acidic. So, yes Coca-Cola is acidic, but not as acidic as the contents of your stomach. The acid in Coca Cola is not bad for your teeth in small amounts, but the sugar is. Be sure to brush often as the bacteria in your mouth have sugar and produce acids that are stronger than Coke, and stick to your teeth, that will cause cavities. If you drink a lot of acidic beverages (soda, lemonade, wine, V8, vinegar etc) it can cause irreversible damage to the protective enamel coating on your teeth, making your teeth more vulnerable to cavities and more sensitive to pain. To minimize acid damage, drink less acidic drinks, use a straw when drinking, or drink water / eat food after or with acidic drinks.

Why did Coca-Cola Blak fail?
Mostly because people preferred to buy their cold coffee drinks from Starbucks (which was marketed in supermarkets by Pepsi) or they didn't like the taste (Coca-Cola and coffee? No thanks). It was pulled from North American shelves in 2007, but (strangely) continues to sell extremely well in France.
Did Coca-Cola create the modern image of Santa Claus?
No, Santa’s image in the American imagination goes back way further than Coca-Cola’s iconic Christmas ads. Santa Claus came over to the United States with Dutch immigrants in the late 1700s. Although his image was constantly evolving, there are definitely instances of Santa depicted as a rotund, red-coat-wearing man with a long white beard that far predate Coke’s use of that image. The cola company started using Santa in its ads in the 1920s, and its most iconic representation comes from Haddon Sundblom’s hand-painted illustrations, which he did every Christmas season from 1931 to 1964. This version of Santa was based heavily on Clement Clark Moore's 1822 poem "A Visit From St. Nicholas" (also known as "'Twas the Night Before Christmas"). Although Moore probably cribbed from other sources, his poem is thought to be mainly responsible for our modern idea of Santa as a jolly old elf. Much credit also goes to political cartoonist Thomas Nast—he depicted Santa Claus in a variety of ways in the late 19th century and served as a major inspiration for Sundblom’s paintings. So, no, it’s not accurate to say Coca-Cola “invented” our modern idea of Santa Claus, but it did help popularize that image.
