Are SodaStream unhealthy? The bottom line. No evidence suggests that carbonated or sparkling water is bad for you. It’s not that harmful to dental health, and it seems to have no effect on bone health.
Is SodaStream healthier than actual soda? The addition of the artificial sweetener in SodaStream flavours is what gives them their lower-calorie status. So, if comparing 100mL of Coke to 100mL of SodaStream soda mix reconstituted as per instructions, then the SodaStream drink is ‘healthier’ in that it contains less sugar and fewer calories.
Is SodaStream worse than soda? And if you break it down by calories per serving, SodaStream looks good with 35 calories versus nearly 100 calories for a Coke. So you’re consuming about two-thirds less sugar with SodaStream compared to normal soda. That’s great, unless you find it tough to stick to that small of a serving size.
Can SodaStream make you sick? Since sparkling water contains CO2 gas, the bubbles in this fizzy drink can cause burping, bloating and other gas symptoms. Some sparkling water brands may also contain artificial sweeteners like sucralose, warns Dr. Ghouri, which may cause diarrhea and even alter your gut microbiome.
