What is CARBONATED WATER?

What is CARBONATED WATER?

Plain water into which carbon dioxide gas has been dissolved.


Where does CARBONATED WATER come from?

From water and CO2. Some Carbonated water is naturaly occuring. But in the case of food products it generally is infused CO2 into regular tap water.


How is CARBONATED WATER made?

Carbonated water can be made by pumping compressed carbon dioxide and the water into a sealed container or simply bubbling large quantities of CO2 through regular water.


Is CARBONATED WATER healty for me?

CARBONATED WATER is a negligible cause of dental erosion. While the dissolution potential of sparkling water is greater than still water, levels remain low: by comparison, soft drinks cause tooth decay at a rate of several hundred times that of regular sparkling water. De-gassing of a sparkling mineral water reduces its dissolution potential, but the total levels are still relatively low, suggesting that carbonation of drinks may not be an important factor in causing dental erosion.


More information about CARBONATED WATER.

Carbonated water is also  known as Soda Water, Sparkling Water, or Seltzer Water.

Club soda may be identical to plain carbonated water or it may contain a small amount of table Salt, Sodium Citrate, Sodium Bicarbonate, Potassium Bicarbonate, Potassium Sulfate, or Disodium Phosphate, depending on the bottler.

Joseph Priestley first discovered a method of infusing water with carbon dioxide when he suspended a bowl of water above a beer vat at a local brewery in Leeds, England. The air blanketing the fermenting beer—called 'fixed air'—was known to kill mice suspended in it. Priestley found water thus treated had a pleasant taste and he offered it to friends as a refreshing drink. In 1772 Priestley published a paper entitled Impregnating Water with Fixed Air in which he describes dripping oil of vitriol (or sulfuric acid as it is now called) onto chalk to produce carbon dioxide gas, and encouraging the gas to dissolve into an agitated bowl of water.

    Would you please e-mail me information about a geographic source of one pepsi ingredient, for example: water, or high fructose corn syrup, and the name of the provider--as to whether it is a subsidiary (different name?), or other. This information would be used to complete a spreadsheet for an Economics Geography class. Your information would be of value. Thank you, Frank Dowd
