In this regard, what is the acidity of Diet Coke?
With a pH of 3.2, diet soda is very acidic. (As a point of reference, the pH of battery acid is 1. Water is 7.) The acid is what readily dissolves enamel, and just because a soda is diet doesn't make it acid-light.
Is Coca Cola acidic or alkaline?
Cherry Coke was found to be the next most acidic (pH of 2.522), and Coke was the third most acidic soda tested (pH of 2.525). Battery acid has a pH of 1.0. Pure water at room temperature has a pH of 7.0. The results show that a soda's acidity is not the whole story when it comes to tooth erosion.
Is flat soda more or less acidic?
Because freshly carbonated sodas contain higher concentrations of carbonic acid, you can make the pH of soda slightly less acidic by allowing it to become flat. However, because carbonic acid contributes little to the acidity of soda, flat soda is only slightly less acidic than fresh soda.
