Looking over the food values and I don't understand what the difference is between club soda, carbonated water and seltzer water.  I thought they were all carbonated water.  2 are good for me 1 is an avoid.

Anybody have any insight?

Thanks!

I think club soda has salt or other additives in it, while seltzer is just water that has carbon dioxide added. I think that "carbonated water" may refer to spring water that's naturally carbonated.

Well, I went back and read the description and they are all essentially the same thing.  2 are marked bene and one avoid.  Hmmm?

Here are the 3 descriptions.  Maybe they meant diet or regular sodas as the carbonated water?

Seltzer Water
General Description:
Carbonated water.

Soda/Carbonated Water
General Description:
A generic term applied to beverages that do not contain alcohol. Soft drinks are most often thought of as carbonated, though effervescence is not a requisite


CLUB SODA
General Description:
Water that has been highly charged with carbon dioxide, which gives it effervescence. Soda water, also called club soda, seltzer water or just plain carbonated water, contains a small amount of sodium bicarbonate, which, because it's alkaline, can help neutralize an acidic stomach. Soda water is combined with sweeteners and various flavorings to produce a wide variety of SOFT DRINKS

OK, according to the typebase, which is more updated than any of the books: http://www.dadamo.com/typebase4/depictor5.pl?380

Club soda is beneficial for all Os.


http://www.dadamo.com/typebase4/depictor5.pl?517

Seltzer water is beneficial for all Os.

http://www.dadamo.com/typebase4/depictor5.pl?381

"soda/carbonated water" is an avoid for everybody, but that seems to be defined as "soft drinks in general."

I think "soda" is listed separately so that people don't think "oh, bubbly beverages are beneficial for Os so I'll drink lots of cola."

I think you're right.  I was kinda thrown because I just went out and bought one of those soda carbonater thingies.  I really like club soda, just bubby filtered water.  They give you syrups to make soda but I gave those away.

Sounds wonderful!  I find it's the bubbles in soda I missed.  I'm fine with plain bubbly water!

So am I understanding correctly that seltzer water and club soda are the same thing?  And that the dadamo description of "soda/carbonated water" is just meant to indicate soda/cola, like Pepsi, Coke, Sprite, 7-up, etc?  I also looked up sparkling water and it says it is soda water.  

So is the following correct:

seltzer water = club soda = sparkling water?

I just want to confirm what I am buying (I found sparkling water at the store.)

Also, seems like a very silly question, but I'll ask it anyway... do you think it is OK/safe to drink this kind of water over plain water --  if I am pregnant?  Or is it better to drink just plain water -- at least during the pregnancy?  I guess I ask this because I never really drink either soda or sparkling water as a general rule.  I always just drink plain water.  So now that I'm pregnant and constantly worrying about what I am ingesting, I just feel a bit strange if I were to start drinking lots of sparkling water as opposed to plain water.  I guess I just want to make sure there is no harm to my unborn baby in drinking lots of sparkling water.  Crazy, huh!?  It's not like this is alcohol, but still,.... I am just being a very worried mother!

There's nothing in the carbonation process that would make the water unsafe for your baby.

The only potential danger is that carbonated water often comes in plastic bottles, and plastic bottles might leach chemicals into the water. If you're switching from filtered or tap water in glasses to sparkling water in plastic, you may be increasing your intake of these chemicals. However, if you're already drinking a lot of water from plastic, or if you can find sparkling water packaged in glass, then this wouldn't be an issue.

recommended to be drank at room temperature, 8 oz, I think 30 minutes, before each meal.

Do you have the baby book, to see what it says about it?  


Do you have the name of the thingy you bought to make your own, or a link, to it. Thanks, so it taste like seltzer water, you buy in a store?

wow, I am so glad you asked this, I was thinking the exact question.

the bubbly mineral water is what I have also been drinking - with a pinch of sea salt and lemon.

the only thing that makes me wonder if carbonation could be a real problem is that the type base mentions for example under seltzer water:

TYPE B:
Secretor:
AVOID: Inhibits proper gastric function or blocks assimilation. Metabolic inhibitor.'

- maybe the actual bubbles are a prob for some guts?

Also, I am certain I read here somewhere that seltzer is so beneficial for some O's as it can actually kill off some types of the bad bacteria...now just have to find where I read that yesterday!

I know someone who cleared up her rosacea with bubbly water. Perhaps it's because it can kill off the bacteria. Interesting.

Does anyone have any experience drinking alkaline water. I know Mercola does not approve.

What happened to that company's website?

I mix both my cranberry and grapefruit juice in. I happen to love the stuff but for those that don't like grapefruit juice but want to drink it as a Benni. Try cutting it with the sparkling water.

Great advice, deblynn3!


My SWAMI diet is a blend of BTD and GTD Explorer, but I'm not totally compliant.  Also I try to choose foods that have a Low Glycemic index.  DW and DD are A+, probably also Explorer.
