A natural taste: the main ingredients in the Original
Since then, we are proud to say, the ingredients of the Original Capri-Sun have never contained preservatives, artificial flavours or artificial colours. In fact, the great taste of our Original Capri-Sun drink is created by a remarkably simple list of ingredients.
Capri-Sun Fact: The ingredients of the Original Capri-Sun have always been all natural from the very beginning in 1969
- No preservatives
- No artificial colours
- No artificial flavours
What are the ingredients of the Original Capri-Sun?
We are meticulous in the selection of our fruit and ingredients: only top-quality ingredients find their way into the pouch. Here’s what goes into making up the great taste of our Original fruit juice drink:
- Fruit juice (from a natural concentrate)
- Sugar or Stevia (from a natural source)
- Natural flavouring
- Vitamin C
How does Capri-Sun stay fresh without preservatives?
Capri-Sun Fact: We take care of your needs. Capri-Sun is:
- Lactose free
- Allergen free
- Gluten free
- Suitable for vegetarians
- Suitable for vegans
The sugar used in our Original Capri Sun not only sweetens our fruit juice drink but it also enhances and deepens the natural fruit flavour and helps to preserve our drink naturally.
Capri-Sun has been on a sugar reduction journey since we first hit the shelves in 1969. Today there is less than 8.8 grams of sugar in a 200-millilitre pouch: that is far less than in an equivalent drink of pure fruit juice.
Capri-Sun is not only committed to offering you a natural taste: we also offer you choice.
That’s why there is a range of our drinks for you to enjoy. These include drinks with reduced sugar, drinks with no-added sugar, and drinks with water and a splash of fruit juice. To maintain taste and choice we use artificial sweeteners in one of these varieties.

How many calories are there in Capri-Sun?
The nutritional content of Capri-Sun can be found on the back of each pouch. Here you will find details of the calories that each drink contains. As a rule of thumb, most Capri-Sun varieties contain 2 to 21 kcal (calories) per 100 ml. To put this in context, this is less than or comparable to 100 ml of pure apple juice (46 kcal) and much less than a 100 ml glass of whole milk (68 kcal).
