In the United States, France, Switzerland and other European and American countries, mineral water usually refers to drinks containing carbonated gas. If you don't want gas, be sure to look for one with "No Gas" printed on the bottle, and sparkling water comes from "Gas Water."
In the hot summer, facing the heat wave, there seems to be nothing better than a glass of ice-cold carbonated drink to relieve the heat.
In addition to the various additives in it, the sugar content is even more shocking. Carbonated drinks contain a lot of sugar, and long-term consumption can lead to obesity, diabetes and other diseases.
Experts say that sugary drinks are the main source of added sugar. The published "Dietary Guidelines for Chinese Residents" recommends added sugar, "The daily intake per person should not exceed 50g, and it is best to control it below 25g."
Relevant tests have shown that drinking a bottle of Coke is equivalent to consuming about 54 grams of added sugar!
Secondly, carbonated drinks contain a large amount of caffeine, and excessive intake can lead to neurological disorders, heart disease and other diseases. There are also a large number of chemical additives that can cause adverse effects on human health.
Because natural gas sparkling water is scarce and expensive, it has long been popular in European and American countries and some Asian regions (such as Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan Province of China) to make homemade sparkling water at home, replacing expensive sparkling water purchased on the market at a lower price.
Hongfeng is one of the well-known home carbonated water maker brands. In principle, our home carbonated water maker uses a physical pressurization method to press food grade carbon dioxide gas into water and mix it, which can produce fresh sparkling water in a few seconds. Bottle capacity is 450-500mL, small capacity, more portable.
Making your own sparkling water not only helps us avoid consuming too much added sugar, but also allows us to adjust the intensity and texture of the sparkling water to our own taste. It is also an eco-friendly living choice that reduces the plastic bottle waste produced by buying commercial sparkling water.
