Ionized Water, Flavor Enhancers and Other Additives

Posted by Alkaline Water Plus on 20th Jun 2011

I had a customer who requested I test several different flavor enhancers to try to find out…

Is there a good flavor-aid or flavor-enhancer to use with ionized water [one that wouldn’t destroy the pH and ORP of the ionized water]?

I have done this kind of testing before, however only found that citric acid, if added to a drink, will make the drink acidic, but because of its alkaline ash will probably not reverse the benefits of drinking ionized water. In other words, drinking a healthy lemonade or iced-green-tea & stevia drink is a very good and refreshing drink, however…

I DO NOT suggest that you use additives exclusively.

I think in moderation adding flavor enhancers to your ionized water is fine, but too much of this practice will not help to alkalize your body in the long run. I have tried it and it doesn’t pan out in real life to feel or be as good as drinking ionized water by itself. Here are some of my other pages:

To accommodate this customer I tested several new flavor-aids and have evaluated them in this blog post, as to their healthiness.

After all my testing…

It looks like green tea is still the winner!

The only caveat with green tea is: make sure you don’t heat the water too much or you’ll lose your benefits of both pH and ORP.
