Kuat (Brazilian Portuguese pronunciation: [kwatʃ])[1] is a brand of guarana beverage sold by The Coca-Cola Company in Brazil.[2] Kuat was introduced in Brazil in 1997 to compete with the leading guarana beverage, Guaraná Antarctica, which was stealing market share from Coca-Cola's cola products.[2]

In Brazil, Kuat is available in a diet version (Kuat Zero) and a green-tea infused version (Kuat Eko).

Kuat was briefly sold in Norway starting in 2003 under the name SanSão.[3]

In 2002, Coca-Cola announced plans to test market Kuat in the United States.[1]
