Capri-Sun is now made with real fruit juice and contains no artificial flavourings, colours or preservatives.

In 2018 Capri-Sun reduced the sugar content of its original range by 50 per cent, by using stevia as a sweetener.

The Coca-Cola Company switched to using a natural-source sweetener possibly after French consumer group FoodWatch France petitioned Capri-Sun should not be marketed towards children, due to its high sugar content.

The juice drink has reduced total sugar content to 4.9 grams per 100ml. The new recipe applies to all flavours in the original range and is the next step in Capri-Sun’s sugar reduction programme which has already included the launch of No Added Sugar variants in 2015 and Fruity Water in 2016.
