Why does soda fizz so much?


Answer by  TheDude (28)

Soda is packaged under pressure, using a gas called carbon dioxide. The carbon dioxide infuses with the water, syrup and other ingredients while the can remains closed. Once the can is opened, it releases the pressure, allowing the carbon dioxide to bubble out of the beverage. After all the carbon dioxide has been released, the soda will be 'flat'.

The main agent that makes soda to fizz is carbon dioxide. It is not used in soda as it is but it is filled as pressurized carbon dioxide. Carbon dioxide when pressurized dissolves in soda easily and makes the soda to fizz when it is opened and gives a tingling taste when drunk.

The fizz in soda is from carbon dioxide gas. Soda pop companies force carbon dioxide, and water, at 1200 pounds of pressure per square inch into your soda can. Your soda will stay in it's liquid form until you open your can. Doing so forces the gas to emerge from the liquid. This is your fizz.

In order to give soda a fizz, bottlers use carbon dioxide, which has been pressurized in order to mix in the water. Then the sugar and flavorings are added and the bottle is sealed for delivery. The jostling during shipment agitates the CO2 molecules and when you open it, they are released.

Soda, or any carbonated beverage for that matter, will "fizz" due to the little bubbles of carbon dioxide releasing in the liquid.
