Carbonated water - a popular non-alcoholic soft drink. It
a drinking or mineral natural water enriched with carbon dioxide.
Therapeutic mineral water enriched with carbon dioxide mineralization over ten grams litr.Sostav such water does not change during the storage period, and all its valuable components are stored for a long vremya.V naturally carbonated water is very rare and quickly runs out of steam due to the low concentration of carbon gas, losing their properties.
Each American consumes about two hundred liters of soda a year. For comparison, the average resident of the CIS drinks annually about fifty gallons of water, and every citizen of China - about twenty liters. According to statistics, carbonated water and beverages produced on its basis in America take 73-75% of the total output of non-alcoholic beverages.
Compressor saturation of water with carbon dioxide was invented Thoburn Bergman, a Swedish designer. In the 19th century, this refined unit and created its industrial counterpart. However, the production of water was very expensive, so for aerating started using baking soda.
Carbonation in modern production is carried out by mechanical, chemical methods. The mechanical method is hardware in food aerating tanks, siphons, carbonator. Under high pressure the water saturated gas from 5 to 10 g / l. The chemical method is the addition of baking soda in water or acids. The method of fermentation used in the production of cider, kvass, champagne, beer, sparkling wine.
Ingredients carbonated water
In the food industry depending on the composition of recovered slightly, moderately and strongly carbonated water. Each has its own carbonated drink sweet and sour base. As generally used sweeteners cyclamate, aspartame, potassium atsesulfat (sunnet) saccharin.
Very often, the water is added malic, citric or phosphoric acid. In certain types of soda added caffeine.
Carbon dioxide in the water used as a preservative. It reacts with water in a chemical reaction and dissolves quickly enough in ney.Uglekisly gas, killing all pathogens, prolongs the shelf life of carbonated soft drinks.

A significant benefit of the human body can bring a natural sparkling water. Carbonated water chilled quenches thirst better than ordinary water. It is indicated for a reduced level of acidity to improve the production of gastric juice. Neutral molecules of natural water nourish the cells of the whole organism and alkalify blood plasma. Sodium in a natural drink activates the action of enzymes the body, maintains muscle tone and acid-base balance. Magnesium and calcium prevents leaching of calcium into the muscle at various loads. Carbonated natural water improves the functioning of the lymphatic, nervous and cardiovascular systems, increases appetite, increases the hemoglobin and improves digestion.
Sayan, Baikal, Duchess, Tarragon - carbonated beverages containing extracts of medicinal herbs. Tarragon in tarragon and Duchess has an anticonvulsant effect, improves digestion and increases appetite. The beverage contains essential Sayani and tannin, ascorbic acid, and other nutrients. Lemon syrup and extract levzei at its core removed

Most nutritionists and doctors talk about the dangers of synthetic soda water for the human body.
The greatest harm carbonated water can cause the body to small children and lactating and pregnant women and people suffering from allergies and obesity and diseases of the gastrointestinal tract. Carbon dioxide can cause flatulence, bloating and belching.
Carbonated beverages usually contain large amounts of sugar. Regular consumption of sugar in large quantities often leading to disruption of the pancreas and the endocrine system and increases the risk of diabetes, atherosclerosis.
Synthetic sodas very bad quench thirst, often addictive. Excessive consumption of soda breaks and fat metabolism of water and salt balance in the body and contributes to the concentration of bad cholesterol in the blood plasma.
Sweeteners in such drinks can cause allergic reactions, urolithiasis and blurred vision.
Acids contained in the soda, damage tooth enamel and irritate the stomach lining. Phosphoric acid leaches calcium from the bones, increasing the risk of osteoporosis.
Caffeine stimulates the nervous system. In addition, it could contribute to the development of addiction.
The structure of many carbonated drinks include sodium benzoate. In combination with ascorbic acid, it releases harmful carcinogen benzene. This substance can destroy a person's DNA.
