Is there any evidence that Coca-Cola recipe includes any Mentha flavoring?

+0
−0

When I drink Coca-Cola I feel an extremely mild Mentha (especially Peppermint) taste.

  • I didn't find any data with these Google search queries (first page):
    • Coca Cola formula Mint
    • Coca Cola formula Mentha
    • Coca Cola formula Peppermint
  • I didn't find any term in that context, or any related term, in the article Coca-Cola formula in Wikipedia

If I recall correctly, Coca-Cola formula still includes Coca leaf extract and Cola leaf extract and such leaf extracts might give that "refreshing" Peppermint taste (or many other ingredients).

In this scientific work, several compounds with the name "mentha" are mentioned but I am not the authority to go down to the chemistry details.
