What about Coke itself? In Australia its made with cane sugar (I stopped drinking it in America when “Classic” Coke changed its sweetener to corn syrup - simply because I didn’t like the taste - but it was never changed at all in Australia). The contents on the bottle are shown simply as: Carbonated water, cane sugar, caramel (150d) and food acid (338) and caffeine.

“In Australia its made with cane sugar “

Can you send me some?? :-) Man, I miss the real thing. I don’t like it made with corn syrup.

Not certain about this but I believe the ‘food acid’ refers to citric acid. That is not the same thing as phosphoric acid, and AFAIK will not cause deplete calcium. Citric acid is used as a preservative in canning foods, for example.
