Coca-Cola Beverages Vietnam has introduced a new RTD herbal tea with wintermelon and luohanguo. The new Fuze Tea Wintermelon Luohanguo contains 50mg/L of luohanguo or monk fruit, a medicinal herb often used by the Chinese to cool down the body. Monk fruit itself is naturally sweet and is promoted, along with stevia, as natural sugar alternatives.
Fuze Tea Wintermelon Luohanguo comes with a sugar content of 4.4g/100ml, thanks to the combination of cane sugar and artificial sweeteners (sucralose and acesulfame potassium).
It would be interesting for beverage manufacturers to innovate with beverages sweetened exclusively with luohanguo to offer consumers with something more natural.
Coca-Cola has earlier introduced Fuze Tea+ Lemon Tea with Lemongrass.
