The Coca-Cola Co. has declined to comment on a report that it is to launch its flagship Coca-Cola drink in so-called "90-calorie cans".

The soft drinks giant is planning to launch smaller cans of Coke next year as part of its push to offer healthier beverage choices, the Atlanta Journal Constitution reported this week.

When contacted by just-drinks yesterday (6 October), a Coca-Cola spokesperson refused to confirm or deny the report.

A regular 12oz can of Coca-Cola contains around 140 calories.

Last week, the group said it will print calorie information per serving on all products worldwide in order to increase consumers' awareness about the calorie content of its soft drinks.
