Soda and Bacteria
Date: January 2007
Is there bacteria inside sealed/capped soda bottles
or after the bottles are filled are they sterilized somehow?
The water used in making soda, as well as the bottles and caps, are
sterilized prior to the mixing/filling process. The generally low pH also
inhibits the growth most microbes. While I am not an expert in this area, I
am sure that various bottlers of soda and other bottled beverages take great
care to ensure that their products are sterile.
