    Often duplicated but never replicated, the Coca-Cola recipe has been a well-kept secret for years.

    Created by medicinal pharmacist John Pemberton in 1886, the exact measures of each ingredient that make up the world-famous soft drink have been closely guarded - until now.

    American public radio show Thisamericanlife.org claims to have uncovered a list of ingredients and their exact quantities to mix the perfect Coca-Cola drink.

    A photo from the 8th February 1979 editorion of American daily newspaper, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, shows a person holding open a book with a recipe, which is allegedly an exact copy of Pemberton's.

    The recipe is said to contain the precise amount of all the different oils needed to create Merchandise 7X, Coca-Cola's secret ingredient.

    Even though Merchandise 7X makes up only one percent of the drink's formula, the key ingredient is believed to give one of the world's most popular soft drink its unique taste.

    The official recipe is allegedly guarded 24-hours a day in a vault in Atlanta, Georgia.

    Here is the ‘secret recipe':

    • Fluid extract of Coca 3 drams USP
    • Citric acid 3 oz
    • Caffeine 1oz
    • Sugar 30 (it is unclear from the markings what quantity is required)
    • Water 2.5 gal
    • Lime juice 2 pints 1 qrt
    • Vanilla 1oz
    • Caramel 1.5oz or more to colour
    • 7X flavour (use 2oz of flavour to 5 gals syrup):
    • Alcohol 8oz
    • Orange oil 20 drops
    • Lemon oil 30 drops
    • Nutmeg oil 10 drops
    • Coriander 5 drops
    • Neroli 10 drops
    • Cinnamon 10 drops

    I just tend to hope that fluid engineers and food science & technology experts could be having some food for thought for some even major innovation in similar lines.
