Tests find traces of alcohol in Coke, Pepsi and other sodas

Scientists who tested 19 different kinds of cola found trace amounts of alcohol in 10 of the samples. However, the amounts were so small that you'd have to consume nearly 13,000 cans to qualify for a DUI.
The Sun reports that the amounts were as low as 10mg per liter, or, 0.001 percent. In other words, you'll still need to visit your local watering hole if you want more jack in your Coke.
France's National Institute of Consumption conducted the tests, which were published in the magazine "60 Millions de Consommateurs."
"It is possible alcohol traces come from the process of making our drink according to its secret recipe," said Coca-Cola France's scientific director Michel Pepin.
Under the "rumors" section of Coca-Cola's website, the company acknowledges:
"Trace levels of alcohol can occur naturally in many foods and beverages. Governments and religious organizations have recognized that such minute levels are considered acceptable in nonalcoholic foods and beverages."
The news has sparked speculation from news outlets that the presence of alcohol could violate the moral codes of certain religions and organizations that prohibit the consumption of alcohol.
However, Pepin specifically notes that the Paris mosque gave Coca-Cola a certificate stating that the Muslim community can consume their products.
PepsiCo also acknowledge the possibility of trace amounts of alcohol in their products, saying, "Some soft drinks can contain minute traces of alcohol because of the ingredients used." However, the company also stressed, "The Pepsi Cola recipe does not contain alcohol."
According to the Sun, both companies said natural fruit fermenting likely produces the traces of alcohol. Interestingly, the study found that the only soda brands which didn't contain the trace amounts of alcohol were generic brands produced by local, French grocery outlets.

Meat and Pastas
Many sauces for meats and heavy pasta dishes are made with alcohol. This can include glazes for meats, such as a whiskey-based chicken glaze or port wine reduction sauces that commonly accompany pork, beef or pasta dishes. Meats are often marinated in alcohol-based marinades, because alcohol can help break down the meats and make them more tender. Other popular dishes include chicken or sirloin marsala, chicken piccata and various risottos.

Vanilla Extract
Vanilla extract contains alcohol and is a popular additive in many dessert recipes, such as cookies, cakes and pastries. Vanilla can also be used in more savory dishes such as chili or as part of a meat marinade. While the alcohol usually cooks down to very low levels in these foods, a small trace amount is still present, so if you are seriously avoiding alcohol, avoid foods in which vanilla extract has been used.




Filled Candies
Alcohol-filled candies are a popular treat for which alcohol isn't used in the preparation of the food but is used as a filling instead. Some chocolates are filled with creamy liquors such as crème de menthe and coconut rum. Government guidelines require that these candies carry a warning of their alcohol content, so make sure you read any packaging on candies to insure they don't contain alcohol.

Aesthetic Use
Some foods use alcohol aesthetically and are lit on fire for a short amount of time as a show and to give foods a slight crisp. This can include popular desserts such as bananas Foster, meat dishes such as steak Diane, and ethnic dishes such as fajitas served on a hot plate. In these cases, the alcohol slowly burns away, but even after the flame has died, it's important to know that the food still contains alcohol.

Beer Infused
Beer is used in a number of different foods, such as soups and stews and even bread. Usually food prepared with beer will have it in the title, such as beer bread or Guinness stew, but if you are uncertain, read the label or ask the chef. Beer can also be used in grilling by pouring it over the grill as food is cooked atop it to raise the flames. As a result, alcohol can be present in the food cooked on the grill.

Yes Sisters my mouth is wide open for real!

Mono- and diglycerides are commonly added to commercial food products in small quantities. They act as emulsifiers, helping to mix ingredients such as oil and water that would not otherwise blend well.

The commercial source may be either animal (cow- or hog-derived) or vegetable, and they may be synthetically made as well. They are often found in bakery products, beverages, ice cream, chewing gum, shortening, whipped toppings, margarine, and confections.[citation needed] When used in bakery products, monoglycerides improve loaf volume, and create a smooth, soft crumb.

Are the breads and baked good your eating contain this chemical derived from hog (aka PIG!!!)

Mono- and diacylglycerols are common food additives used to blend together certain ingredients, such as oil and water, which would not otherwise blend well.
The commercial source may be either animal (cow- or hog-derived) or vegetable, derived primarily from partially hydrogenated soy bean and canola oil.[citation needed] They may also be synthetically produced. They are often found in bakery products, beverages, ice cream, peanut butter, chewing gum, shortening, whipped toppings, margarine, and confections.
