Soda drinks like coke including carbonated drink, cool drink, cold drink, fizzy drink, fizzy juice, lolly water, pop, seltzer, soda, coke, soda pop, and tonic are often packaged in a can, plastic bottle, or a glass bottle. While soda companies claim that the recipe does not change, there are a few factors that might affect the way you taste a soda depending on the container.
Cans VS. Glass Bottles
A can keeps the soda colder. But does the container really affect the flavor? Soda companies claim to use the same proportion of ingredients. The spokesperson for Coca-Cola company said Coca-Cola uses the same recipe regardless of the package type, and maybe when the coke is iced cold it will taste better. Let’s look at the ingredients in the containers. Glass bottles are pure, real, and natural. Glass preserves the original flavour of the product, nothing more and nothing less. Nothing passes from the glass into the soda, nothing penetrates from outside through the glass into the product and nothing escapes outside. Glass bottles contain no other chemical ingredients besides the glass, so there is nothing in it that could really change the taste.
Can’s material is typically aluminum, lined on the inside with a polymer that can contain BPA or Bishphenol A. The BPA has little effect on the taste. The lining protects the taste of the soda and keeps it from being contaminated by the metal. However, some people still think there’s a metal taste. Sometimes cans can taste a little bit metallic. Where is this sensation coming from? When the cans are opened and put your tongue on a metal can especially people who are sensitive to the metal should taste metallic sense. The FDA regulates the amount of contaminants allowed in drinks to make sure the beverage is safe.
Plastic Bottles VS. Glass Bottles
Let’s look at carbonation. When people drink the coke containing carbonation, it get two things going on: one is you get that tingly thing from the bubbles, you also get that carbon dioxide going up in your nose, so it carries the other flavors into your nose as well. As a result, carbonation levels can affect the taste, but how can the CO2 levels change based on the packaging? Carbonation can slowly, potentially leak out of a plastic bottle in a way it can’t leak out of a glass bottle. The structure of the glass is pretty tight, so the diffusion rates through glass are really slow. And if the plastic container is warm more CO2 will be released when you open it making the soda taste flat. Light can also affect flavor. Coke is bottled in glass and stored away from light will have a better flavor and carbonation levels will stay consistent much longer than in plastic bottles.
In conclusion, when drinking coke, glass is the most inert substance used for packaging and therefore gives the most unaltered drinking experience. No matter in the can or plastic bottle there are polymers/the molecules inside the packaging-themselves built from smaller units strung together-and add properties to the material they are used in. The polymer acetaldehyde is used in plastic bottles could transfer into the coke inside the bottle, subtly altering its flavour.
How people love glass
How people describe the glass bottle? A glass bottle is pure, clear, natural, and shiny. It is strong, malleable, impermeable, and beautiful. It is unmistakable, safe, sustainable, and healthy. A glass bottle is brand-shaping, flexible, decorative, and wonderful. It is reusable, recyclable, resistant and protective. People can have a thousand reason to love a glass bottle, it is pure to contain the perfume, the color can be transparent, opaque, and colored. The inside beverage is taste neutral. Glass is a natural and neutral material which protects the high-quality contents. Luxury Olive oil, premium Whiskey and vodka, organic milk, raw cold pressed juice, sparking water, and red wine are preferred to be packaged in glass bottles.
Glass Bottle is the Best Material for Containing Beverage
No other packaging material can compete with the outstanding properties of glass. Glass is a natural and neutral material which protects your high-quality contents.
We can’t forecast the future. It will be built step-by-step and choice-by-choice, in moments large and small. But when it comes to packaging, the future is made clear. Our future is glass: the preferred material for sustainable, healthy, reusable and infinitely recyclable closed loop packaging. Choosing glass is choosing a better future – and promising to do our part to make that future real. It’s a promise to protect health – of the planet, of people, of society – so that we thrive together for generations to come.
