All about soft drinks

When we are so much thirsty, there is no problem if sometimes we drink soft drink. But problem is if we make it our habit to drink soft drink regularly. If we drink it regularly then there is a possibility to create some problem in our health. Drinking soft drink is no problem at all but is careful it should not be our habit.

Elements of making soft drink:

The main element of making soft drink definitely is water. Then mixed some acid with water. This acid may be phosphoric acid, citric acid, malic acid or tartaric acid. In cola types soft drink there is present much phosphoric acid. To avoid the sour taste of acid there will mix sugar or saccharin. In cola types soft drink there will mix coco with that. Each 100mm coco contains approx 15 mg caffeine. After process in bottle, it remains unchanged for many days. For that there will mix some chemical preservative in bottle. The most mentioned preservatives are sodium benzoate or sulphur dioxide.

To make color, taste and flavor there will mix different chemical for different drinks. karomel is used to create black color. karmyosin is used to make red color, tatrajin is for orange color, sunset yellow is for yellow, ponsu is for orange-yellow color. To create taste and smell, there will mix another some chemical. Before close the cork, carbon dioxide gas provided inside the bottle. We must notice when we open the cork, carbon dioxide is shown as like bubble.

And also the sugar presented in bottle can be harmful for our molar teeth. Are we washing our mouth after drinking the soft drinks? Maximum time it’s not. So chemical remains long time and harm also continue for long time.
