carbonated soda mostly known by the name of pop soda is a refreshing drink loved by large numbers of people. Carbonated soda’s are loved and make a great company at parties and functions. Carbonated soda has been ruling the market for more than a few decades. Some call it the thirst quencher; some call it a refresher while some simply love to drink it for no reason. The main fun in a carbonated drink is about the fizz and bubbles. Ever wondered where these bubbles and fizz comes from. Well, it is the carbon dioxide gas that makes your soda fizz.
Making carbonated soda is not a tough thing. If all the ingredients are put right you can make a great drink. You need water, syrup, additives, and the most important carbon dioxide gas. All these ingredients are mixed together and placed in a bottle or can. After the container is filled, the empty space above is again filled with carbon dioxide gas and it’s sealed. The gas present in the top of container generates pressure and does not allow the CO2 to escape. The fizz that comes out the moment you open the bottle or can, is because the upper layer of carbon dioxide escapes.
You must have observed that when we open the drink, many bubbles come out and the drink somewhat flattens. A carbonated soda is fun to drink only when the bottle is newly opened. However, the fizz can be maintained these days if you still plan to continue to drink from same bottle. There are fizz holders that allow you to retain the fizz and enjoy a fresh drink every time you want it. It’s like a bar tap that can be put on the cap of the bottle. Simply open the tap whenever you need a cool drink.
Making carbonated soda at home is also an easy process. Taking note of the love people have for carbonated sodas, manufacturers came up with a home soda machine. This enabled people to make fresh soda, anywhere and anytime. These soda makers are easy to carry, trendy and user friendly. One carbon dioxide cylinder can make around 60 glasses of soda. You simply need to put in the ingredients in the soda maker, put the cylinder in place and push the button. The machine automatically carbonates the drink and gives you the same fizzy soda.
Carbonated soda’s that enjoyed immense popularity years back have now lost some of their erstwhile image. Carbonated soda’s are acid based and eventually prove harmful to the body. As people started learning about the ill effects of carbonated soda they limited its intake and encouraged their kids to do the same. Thus, the market for carbonated sodas soon started shrinking forcing companies to come up with energy drinks. Coca cola and Pepsi could survive in the market as they were already prepared for the change.
Despite several controversies carbonated soda is still loved by many. Companies still seem to do a fairly good business. Making carbonated soda is not only cheap but easy too. If you are a die hard fan of carbonated soda fetch yourself a soda fountain and prepare as many drinks as you want.
