Coca-Cola Trade Secrets – Has the Granddaddy of Them All Been Breached?

An interesting story from the UK’s Daily Mail, reporting that the website for radio’s This American Life, purports to have a photo showing the original formula for Coke, perhaps the world’s best-known example of a trade secret. The photo was supposedly unearthed from 1979 newspaper story.

Coca-Cola was invented in 1886 and its recipe has allegedly been in a vault in Atlanta pretty much ever since.

Among the potentially surprising ingredients: lime juice, coriander and nutmeg oil.

Expect to get some clarication from the company on this one soon.
