What's in Rose's Lime Cordial?
April 13, 2009 8:41 PM   Subscribe

Do you have Rose's Lime Juice or Rose's Lime Cordial in your house? Can you list the ingredients and your country? I've been told that in some countries it contains HFCS and am curious which countries this is (wikipedia says USA alone, but am curious).

I'm the US. HFCS is the second ingredient.

Coca-Cola Ltd. publishes ingredients on its websites. According to the UK site, the UK Rose's contains sugar.

And other people have wondered before, too: Here's a report on Canadian Rose's, which contains sugar.

Man, this is a bummer. Does anyone know of a grenadine and lime juice that does not have HFCS? I wish I'd checked the label before I bought it.

Thanks for your answers so far, folks. Yeah, I'm in Canada and no HFCS here, which is surprising as we often take our cues from the USA. I'm still wondering if any other country does this.

HFCS is not actually cheaper than sugar! However, the United States has restrictive tariff-rate quotas protecting domestic sugar producers, which leads to sugar being much more expensive than in other countries. Canada has no domestic sugarcane producers, so no producers to protect, so no quotas.
