Fanta, a Coca-Cola brand, makes a variety of fruit-flavored soda. Although over 180 flavors of Fanta soda exist worldwide, only a small fraction of those flavors are available in the United States. Like many other sodas, Fanta orange soda contains a significant amount of calories without providing any nutritional benefits. Avoid consuming this product too often and select healthier beverages whenever possible.

Serving Size

The nutrition facts of Fanta Orange soda are based on an 8-ounce serving size. Although some cans of Fanta Orange soda are available in an 8-ounce size, most cans are 12 ounces and most bottles are 20 ounces or 2 liters. This means you need to adjust the nutrition fact amounts if you consume a larger-sized can or bottle. For example, you should multiply the nutrition levels by 1.5 if you consume an entire 12-ounce can or multiply the amounts by 2.5 if you consume an entire 20-ounce bottle.

Nutrition Facts

Fanta Orange soda has 110 calories. It does not contain any fat, cholesterol, protein or fiber, and only has 35 milligrams of sodium. The total amount of carbohydrates in this beverage is 30 grams, which come exclusively from sugar. The soda does not contain any vitamins or minerals. It does not contain caffeine.

Nutrient Recommendations

You can use the daily value amounts established by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to determine if a particular food is healthy or unhealthy. These daily value amounts are based on the average diet of 2,000 calories, however, so your nutrient needs may vary if you consume a different number of calories or have certain medical conditions. Most adults should aim to get less than 2,300 milligrams of sodium, 300 milligrams of cholesterol, 65 grams of total fat and 20 grams of saturated fat each day. Most adults should also strive to get at least 25 grams of dietary fiber, 50 grams of protein and about 300 grams of total carbohydrates. The guidelines also recommend selecting foods rich in vitamins and nutrients, and advise avoiding foods that contain added sugar. When you consider these nutritional suggestions, it is clear that Fanta Orange soda is not a healthy beverage and should be consumed in moderation.

Considerations

If you enjoy the taste of Fanta Orange soda but do not enjoy the calories and sugar, you may want to consider Fanta Orange Zero. This beverage contains no calories, fat, carbohydrates, sugar or protein. It has only 25 mg of sodium, compared to the 35 g of sodium in the regular Fanta soda. Although this beverage does not contain any vitamins or minerals, it is a healthier alternative to regular Fanta Orange soda. However, since this beverage is also void of the essential nutrients your body needs, you still should not consume this beverage too often and select more nutrient rich beverages whenever possible.
