DUS 47: 2022, Carbonated and non-carbonated soft drinks — Specification, Fourth edition; (26 page(s), in English)
This Draft Uganda Standard specifies requirements, sampling and test methods for carbonated and non-carbonated soft drinks which may be concentrated (solid or liquid) or ready to drink.
This standard does not apply to products for which other standards apply such as:
a) waters (including packaged water, flavoured drinking water and packaged natural mineral waters);
b) fruit juice drinks;
c) fruit juices and nectars;
d) vegetable juices and nectars;
e) herbal juices (ready to drink and concentrates); and
f) cereal based beverages
The standard stipulates the compositional, safety and quality attributes for carbonated and non-carbonated soft drinks. Labelling requirements have been incorporated in this standard to clearly distinguish carbonated and non-carbonated soft drinks from other types of drinks. This standard clarifies the difference between the carbonated and non-carbonated soft drinks and other drinks with a view of facilitating communication between consumers and traders while encouraging fair trade practices. For clarity purposes to industry and standard enforcers, it is important to distinctively mention that diet/light/lite are low calorie drinks, normally with virtually no calories.
