Are those ingredients and nutritional facts in soft drinks are real?

Probably: Along with tort liability for a false label, there's also laws against false labels that are enforced often enough to make these reliable. Soda pop is primarily marketing, with sugar or artificial sweetener, carbonated water, flavoring, maybe caffeine, dyes and preservatives. Sometimes they can hit the spot though there's nothing especially either nutritious or risky here.
