Drinks Contain Fish Gelatine

I recently was told fizzy drinks contained fish extracts. I decided to email Coca-Cola. heres the reponse. Amritdharhi Sikhs should be aware of this.

Thank you for your enquiry regarding the ingredients in our products.

I can confirm that none of the products of Coca-Cola Great Britain contain
ingredients derived from mammals. As some practicing vegetarians avoid fish
products as well, it is important to note that some of our products contain
minute traces of fish gelatine,
which is used as a stabiliser for the
beta-carotene colour. These products are:

‘Fanta’ Orange (and Fanta Orange Z)

‘Fanta’ Apple Splash

‘Lilt’ pineapple & grapefruit (and Lilt Z).

‘Alive’ Orange Cascade

‘Kia-Ora’ Orange and Pineapple Squash (and NAS)

Minute Maid Froot Refresh (Mango and Passion Fruit)

I can also confirm that none of our products contain egg derivatives.

Yours sincerely,

Consumer Information Centre

Fanta Orange has fish gelatine!? Yikes!

Any idea whether this occurs only in Fanta Orange avaialable in the UK, or can we assume that all Coca Cola manufacturing units worldwide are using fish gelatine in their Fanta Orange drinks too?

GS ji,

it's best to contact the coca cola branch in your country.

i'd assume that the manufacturing process would vary depending between the continents.
