Soda Breakthrough: 80%+ Sugar-Reduction for Cola Solas

Chocolate Breakthrough: Sweetener-Free Chocolates

Remove Sweeteners
From Confections
Using the Coca Leaf

The main cola sodas, Coca-Cola and Pepsi have 38 to 42 grams of sugar.
Many chocolates average 50% sugar, the popular Hershey bar with 24 grams (57%).
KukaXoco eliminates this addictive, diabetes-inducing, obesity-inducing, "sweet drug"
(global consumption of added sugar contributes to over 150,000 deaths a year).
KukaXoco frees cola sodas and cacao from sugar's deadly embrace!

With a discovery from the Andes,

scientists at KukaXoco (kúkazóko) have proved that safe and healthy extracts of de-cocainized coca leaf (FDA and DEA compliant - 21 CFR 182.20 and 21 USC 812 IIa4 - legal for sale wherever Coca-Cola is sold), makes diet cola sodas much more pleasant to drink (and allowing an 80+% reduction of sugar in sugary colas) --- and debitters unsweetened cacao, allowing the chocolate industry to reduce its sugar use. The powerful, safe, healthy coca leaf allows industries to now remove one of the world's most destructive (diabetes, obesity, heart disease) and addictive drugs, sugar, from their products. By removing most/all sugar, while preserving taste and aroma of cola sodas and chocolate, KukaXoco is helping to turn chocolate into the world's most delicious health food, while making cola sodas, well, at least not a health threat.

You see coca leaf; and you say 'Why?'
But I dream of coca leaf uses that never were;
and I say 'Why not coca-chocolate?'
- Jorge Bernardo Shaw

How Sugar Poisons Chocolate

Removing 80% to 100% of Sugar from Cola Sodas - SO EASY!

How easy? Take one 220 milliliter can of U.S. Diet Coke (only 'sweetened' with aspartame). Add 5 to 10 milliliters of ENACH coca leaf extract. To make a cola soda with 80% less sugar, just a bad of table sugar. To make a more pleasant diet cola soda, add a bag of 10:1 cyclamate:saccharin. The resulting experience is much more pleasant than with existing diet cola sodas, and with little to none of the sugar of sugary colas.
