What makes the fizz in soda?

Is it a harmful gas?


Answer by  Dez (24)

Carbonation makes the fizz in soda. Carbonation does come from a gas, but it is not harmful, unless you drink carbonated drinks in large amounts. Drinking too many carbonated beverages can cause bloating, tummy ache, and even heartburn, for some consumers.

If it were harmful, the FDA wouldn't allow soda to be sold. The fizz is made by carbon dioxide (CO2), the same stuff you breathe out. It won't hurt you. Soda starts off flat, and bottling plants force the carbon dioxide into the bottles so it mixes with the liquid to make it fizz.
