Soft drinks in Canada - additional information

Soft drinks belong to the non-alcoholic beverage industry and are commonly defined as beverages which are made of carbonated water, artificial sweetener and a variety of flavoring agents. The soft drink category often also includes non-alcoholic ready-to-drink beverages such as juice, bottled water, sports and energy drinks, and sometimes coffee and tea.

The consumption of soft drinks has been heavily criticized in recent years due to the large amount of sweeteners and sugar contained in the beverages which are commonly associated with obesity, diabetes and dental cavities. During the past decade, the share of Canadian adults that are overweight or obese, based on BMI, increased constantly from 49.4 percent in 2005 up to 54 percent in 2014. However, figures from October 2014 suggest that the trend of decreasing soft drink consumption in Canada is set to continue in the coming years. Per capita soft drink consumption in Canada fell from 104 liters to 71 liters between 2005 and 2014.

During a nationwide survey in autumn 2014, it was found that the three most popular soft drinks among Canadian consumers aged 12 years and over were, perhaps surprisingly, not the unhealthiest ones. In fact, milk, fruit juice and bottled water were among the healthiest on the list. A similar story could be seen among younger consumers. Global giant Coca Cola was the fourth most popular soft drink, followed by its competitor Pepsi. Coca-cola is by far the leading soft drink brand worldwide, with a brand value of over 67.75 billion U.S. dollars in 2016. In 2013, Coca Cola launched a new beverage called Coca Cola Life. Flavored with the natural sweetener stevia, this new product reportedly contains 60 percent less calories than regular Coca Cola.
