Also to know is, which coffee is more acidic?
Dark Roasts – a study published in 2010 found that dark roast coffee is easier on the stomach than light roasts because it produces an ingredient that prevents hydrochloric acid from building up in the stomach. Cold Brew – brewing coffee using the cold brew method has been shown to increase the pH level of coffee.
Also, why is Coke acidic? If you look at the list of ingredients, you will find that Coca-Cola and many other brands contain phosphoric acid (food grade - don't worry). This is probably the dominant cause of acidity. Of course, the carbon dioxide is also acidic, but weakly, so there should be very little difference between carbonated and flat.
Accordingly, which is more acidic Coke or Diet Coke?
The study measured the acidity, or pH, of 20 commercial soft drinks, including Coke, Pepsi, 7 Up and their diet versions, immediately after cans were opened. 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.
Is the acid in coffee bad for you?
While coffee's acidity is fine for most people, it may aggravate certain health conditions in others. These conditions include acid reflux, gastric ulcers, and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Coffee's effects on these conditions are mainly attributed to its acidity and slight laxative effect in some people (6, 7 , 8 ).
