MILWAUKEE -- Seltzer, sparkling water, club soda -- what's what, and are they as healthy as we think? Our registered dietitian Lisa Grudzielanek with Your Tasty Life joins Real Milwaukee with what the fizz is all about.
- Carbonated (fizzy) water contributes to your daily fluid needs.
- There`s no good evidence that carbonated water alone harms your bones.
- Flavoring agents make carbonated water significantly more acidic.
- Sodas have a pH level as low as 2! This very acidic and can erode teeth.
- Sparkling Mineral Water, is bottled at the source and has naturally occurring minerals and carbonation.
- Seltzer, which is also called sparkling water, is carbonated artificially, and has bigger, sharper bubbles.
- Club Soda is essentially the same as seltzer with a few additions like salt and potassium that give club soda its salty, mineral taste.
