What drinks don't have citric acid?
    #12861537 - 07/07/10 01:38 PM (4 years, 5 months ago)

Due to a health problem. I cannot drink anymore pop. I have been told to take citric acid out of my diet. I have tried drinking water, but it makes me want to throw up. So, I went to the store and looked at that powder stuff to flavor the water. Guess what? It all has citric acid. Hell even a lot of food I eat I noticed has citric acid on the label. It's crazy. Gatorade has citric acid, so do most juices. The only thing I can think of is becoming a drunkard. Any ideas?

Edit: Forgot to mention I can't drink milk.

Well even alcohol is acidic. :sad:

I get acid reflux easily, so I've learned to love water :smile:

Wow, I'm surprised you guys have not met a person who doesn't like water? I don't know if its just cause I don't drink it enough or what. All I know is I have never drank water to drink water it has always tasted bad and made me physically ill and I live in the USA where it is all clean and stuff. So maybe I'm a whiny bitch, but either way seems like I have no choice now but to drink water. Unless someone has an alternative?

:what:

Water isn't suppose to taste good.. it doesn't exactly taste like ANYTHING

If WATER makes you physically ill, you probably have something wrong with you dude, your body thrives on water

Just fucking chug it then :shrug:

My advice, is to make tea.

These are fucking DELICIOUS, basically no calories, no sugar, no artifical bullshit, and it tastes amazing



I drink water all day everyday, and sometimes I'll make tea.

When people say they dislike the taste of water, what they really mean is they crave sugar and water doesn't fulfill that need.

Nearly anything you buy pre-bottled is going to be full of both sugar and citric acid..  If you really have some type of health problem it's probably time you get used to drinking water anyway and move past the sugar fixation.

Pop, gatorade, bottled juices and the like are one of the major reasons so many people are fat now.  They used to be considered an indulgence, like dessert.  People today drink them as if they are a standard part of the diet.

^^^^ And besides, water is in every other drink anyway. A cup of ice water is the most refreshing thing there is to me. Or you could make your own vegetable juices.

Is that good? This problem is unrelated to the original post but I have high blood pressure and hear salt can contribute to that?

If anyone was curious about why I initially posted. I recently had to go to the doctor over some mouth/throat sores and he thinks I am citric acid intolerant and wants me to try to get it out of my diet and see what happens.

I somehow missed your post. Do you know if it lists citric acid in the ingredients?

Ya, it is freaking crazy. I thought high fructose corn syrup was in a lot of stuff. But, this citric acid is in almost everything.

Why did he tell you to lighten up on citric acid?

You should ask him if a minimal amount is still OK such as teas

I had an infection and at first we thought the ulcers were from that. The infection cleared up and the sores persisted. That was just one of his suggestions. But, ya it is true some should be OK. Cause I've been drinking Gatorade today and it doesn't burn like a pop would burn and irritate the sores. Which makes me think it is something else. I see him in a few weeks though.

To answer your question he is just guessing, he is unsure what is causing the sores.
