No Difference Between Coke Life and HFCS Coke?

You may remember that a few weeks ago I presented on corn and its presence in high fructose corn syrup. Specifically, I touched on corn syrup in sodas as compared to natural sweeteners, such as stevia. Well, it turns out there may not be much of a difference.

Scientists recently found that many types of this soda actually possess the monosaccharides of fructose and glucose as opposed to sucrose, which is what they claim to have due to the natural sweeteners. High fructose corn syrup is almost entirely made up of these monosaccharides. Scientists found that the acidic nature of soda breaks down the sucrose into its base components slowly over time.

What do you think? Do sodas like Coke Life or other with naturally sweeteners taste different to you?
