Do you know how to produce Coca Cola?

Coca-Cola, or Coke is a carbonated soft drink produced by Cocal Cola Company. Originally intended as a patent medicine. It was invented in the late 19th century by an American pharmacist. Asa Griggs Candler, the founder of The Coca-Cola Company, bought out it. The drink’s name refers to two of its original ingredients, which were kola nuts (a source of caffeine) and coca leaves. The current formula of Coca-Cola remains a trade secret, although a variety of reported recipes and experimental recreations have been published.

It is time for the Coke to be put into the bottles.

The soda is not all put in at the same time. The mixing process actually has more steps now than it did when it was first bottled. In a room full of bags of sugar and buckets of caramel coloring, Coke is bottled using four different steps. First, pure water is put in the bottle by a machine, after that, refined sugar is added to the mix.

Then, the sugar water gets the Coke’s secret formula mixture and some caramel coloring. A machines shake the bottles up a bit to make sure everything is mixed together well. After everything is mixed together, carbon dioxide is added to the mix to make the drink fizz.

Everything is robotic; nothing is done by the human hand. At the end of the process, drinks would be checked by a person for quality. The World of Coca-Cola museum in Atlanta has a special room dedicated to the bottling process.
