What Portion of an Ounce is in a Can of Soda?

In the US, a 12-ounce soda can contains the typical amount of liquid. There are several different ounce amounts and can sizes for soda.

There are many different sizes of beverage cans, and some nations use larger cans for things like beer, cider, and energy drinks. For instance, energy drinks are sold in Australia in 500-ml cans, which are the same size as a 16.9-oz can.

The typical beverage can in the US and many other nations holds 12 oz., or 355 ml. The majority of soda producers who sell their product in cans use 12-oz bottles. However, beverage container manufacturers provide a wide range of can sizes for the international market. There are 11 different alternatives on the list of standard-sized beverage cans for North America, ranging in size from 5.5 oz. to 32 oz.

Numerous soda manufacturers sell small cans, which are around two-thirds the size of a regular can. Mini cans have a volume of 222 ml as opposed to the conventional can’s 355 ml.

Coca-Cola was one of the first beverage companies to offer the tiny can in 2009 as a solution for customers looking for a smaller beverage option. Other name-brand and store-brand beverage manufacturers now provide mini-can options for soda due to the apparent popularity of the mini-can for Coca-Cola.
