Wine or coke?

I would like to know which contains more sugar. A can of coke or a glass of dry white wine?

Dear Jacqui
According to the SA Food Tables, Cola drinks contain 10.3 g of carbohydrates all in the form of sugar per 100 ml. Dry white wine contains 1.4 g of carbs/100 ml and no sugar because all the sugar has been used up during the fermentation process. The energy values are: cola drinks 167 kJ/100ml and dry white wine 298 kJ/100 ml (the higher kJ content is due to the alcohol content.
