The Flavor of the Fizz matters…

Guess what? Sugar isn’t the biggest culprit when it comes to a fizzy drink’s impact on teeth.

Soft drinks strip minerals from tooth enamel because of their high acid content. We’re talking corrosive acids like phosphoric, malice, citric, and tartaric. And the flavor of the fizz matters.

They all have an impact, but in a study, clear, citric-flavored bubbly beverages dissolved enamel two to five times more than colas did.
