    but if it was vegetarian then surely they would put the 'suitable for vegetarians' mark on the side?..
    Doubtful. It's a voluntary practice which some manufacturers engage in. Most drinks makers don't usually put it, since drinks are generally vegetarian.

    That said, all that's in coke is carbonated water, sugar, sulphite ammonia caramel, phosphoric acid, a few flavourings and caffeine.

    You'll have to ask your dealer - see if he has the nutrition value on hand.

    That little green tick thing confuses me.

    Some things have it; safe.
    Some thing don't have it; how can you tell whether it's just not there because they didn't want it, or because it's not vegetarian friendly?

    I'm not a vegetarian so it doesn't matter, but it's been an issue in the past.

    suitable for vegetarians labels are generally used by certain manufacturers wishing to indicate products which are suitablefor vegetarians. this mayoftenbe inproducts which are targeted towards the vegetarian market, or often in ambiguous products to make it clear toconsumers whoare vegetarian that the product is suitable.

    There are many products which don't carry labels which are still suitable. However, labelling has become so widespread that it has become almost expected.
