  Diet soda - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Diet sodas (also diet, sugar-free, or light soft drinks, refreshments, or carbonated beverages) are sugar-free, artificially sweetened, non-alcoholic carbonated beverages generally marketed towards health-conscious people, diabetics, athletes, and other people who want to lose weight or stay fit.
Diet Rite is the non-aspartame diet soda brand with the highest sales today; it uses a combination of sucralose and acesulfame potassium.
By 2002, some soda companies had diversified to include such flavors as vanilla and lemon among their products, and diet sodas were soon begun to be produced with those flavors too (see Diet Vanilla Coke, Diet Pepsi Vanilla).

 Diet Pepsi - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Diet Pepsi is a low-calorie carbonated cola.It was introduced in 1964.
Additional variations of Diet Pepsi have been introduced over the years, wherein other flavors (such as wild cherry, vanilla, lemon, and lime) have been added to the cola; their availability and brand identification vary by country.
Other commercials feature Diet Pepsi (the can) as an entertainer, represented by "agent" Jay Mohr, in a music video produced by Diddy ("Brown and Bubbly"), and an action film featuring Jackie Chan (Diet Pepsi is replaced by a "stunt double", a rival Diet Coke can, which is squashed by the villains).

Last year, regular soda accounted for nearly 73 percent of sales, but that was down nearly 2 percent from the year before, Sicher said.
But even if the growth of diet soda doesn't go as far as Sicher predicts, at the moment it's the only segment of the soda industry that is growing, and that has forced companies to rethink how they handle it.
The shift to diet is being felt across the industry, including by the many small regional soda companies.

 ACSH > Facts & Fears > Archives
By Ruth Kava, Ph.D., R.D. Diet sodas, which have no or very few calories, should be a boon to the overweight in their attempts to lose excess pounds.
The answer might lie in the report, rather than in biology, and is a great example of the drawbacks of presenting preliminary reports (those which have not been peer-reviewed) to the public.
