Good morning  

I have a quick query if anyone can help please.  

For my type few drinks are beneficial but seltzer water is, however I'm not sure what this is.  
In the UK we tend to call some things different to the US, and the only thing I know of referring to seltzer is 'Alka-seltzer' which are dissolvable tablets for an upset stomach etc, so.... is seltzer water bottled fizzy water (sparkling water)

Bottled sparkling water ingredients say: added CO2

Or is it what we would call soda water over here?

Soda water ingredients say: carbonated water and sodium bicarbonate.

When I've googled seltzer water it says it can refer to club soda (whatever that is?), soda water or sparkling water?!

So, I'm unsure because LRFYT says I need to avoid soda.  

.
Thanks!

Seltzer water is what you call soda water..

Sparkling mineral water is a better option, since it also contains minerals..

Soda in the US is any beverage with gas (and sugar or sweetener), that's what we should avoid..

Cheers,
Yaman

Great thanks, so I can drink the cans of soda water I bought then   just avoid other fizzy (carbonated) drinks such as coke and orangeade etc, which is no problem as I very rarely drink those anyway.

Right! And it's best to drink the soda water about half an hour before meals.

Cat2, you are looking for what you call sparkling water with the only ingredient being the added CO2.  I feel strongly about this because I have begun to use it and did my homework before I made my first purchase.

So.....our 'Soda water' with the ingredients = carbonated water and sodium bicarbonate is not ok?
it must just be sparkling water with CO2?

Your soda water is perfectly OK. Carbonated means added ''CO2''

CO2 binds with water to make H2CO3,
Bicarbonate is HCO3(-), usually binds with Sodium, that's why soda is called soda..

Sorry for not agreeing with Yamen and I may be wrong.

Please just consider that my SWAMI says Club Soda = Avoid.  Club Soda ingredients at my store states that it contains bicarbonate of soda.  While seltzer water = Neutral and its ingredients simply list as water and CO2, no bicarbonate of soda.  Can you see why the difference appears to be clear to me?

Just a side note, In Dr. D.'s ER4YT he tells us that 'A's have low stomach acid.  It makes sense to me that Dr. D. determined that we should avoid club soda with the bicarb in it.  An old-time remedy for too much stomach acid was to mix a bit of baking soda w/water and swallow it.  Am I really off?

Enobattar,

Cat2 blood type is O. Which means that club soda and seltzer is listed as a beneficial.  At least in the ER4YBT Arthritis book.  

Cat2, yes it's okay unless you have a SWAMI that says otherwise.

Thanks for setting me straight, Hentag.  I forgot Cat2 was an O.

I think the kind with added sodium bicarbonate is what the US calls "club soda". The only kind of "soda" that's an avoid for all types is the commercially available soft drinks, with added sugar and/or corn syrup and/or artificial sweeteners, plus other chemical flavoring and colors.

All-natural sodas (with ingredients such as cane sugar and natural flavors) are technically still an "avoid", mainly due to the sugar content- one serving contains more than one day's allotment of added sugar. However, a product such as that, if all the ingredients are compliant, would be OK for an occasional treat.
