Apr 12, 2014 01:40 PM EDT | By Dina Exil
Pepsi has announced they are eliminating high fructose corn syrup from its beverages and replacing it with actual sugar.
USA Today reported that this summer Pepsi will introduce its "Made with Real Sugar" line. The soda will be sweetened with sugar instead of high-fructose corn syrup. Beverage Digest, a trade publication, reported that consumers have become increasingly concern over the use of high fructose corn syrup and artificial sweeteners in the beverages.

Starting June, the soda giant plans to roll out three types of Pepsi-Cola sweetened with real sugar: "Pepsi Made With Real Sugar," "Pepsi Vanilla Made With Real Sugar," and "Pepsi Wild Cherry Made With Real Sugar."
The move comes as the sales of $76 billion carbonated soft drinks have continued to decline. According to Beverage Digest, both Diet Coke and Diet Pepsi saw sales fall by seven percent last year. USA Today said Americans are questioning the potential health associated with consuming high fructose corn syrup or artificial sweeteners.
"There's little evidence that HFCS differs uniquely from table sugar and other nutritive sweeteners in metabolic effects, subjective effects and adverse effects such as risk of weight gain." the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics said.
Vani Hari, a consumer activist and creator of the FoodBabe.com blog stated: "Consumers shouldn't only be worried about high fructose corn syrup, they need to investigate the entire label. For example, most people don't know that consuming the ingredient "caramel coloring" in Pepsi could be worse for them than the high fructose corn syrup."
