Hi everyone, I'm Baoma, Gourmet Expert! In life, there is only love and delicious food to live, even if you have simple food, you must live a colorful life!
It's also Coca-Cola, what's the difference between "bottle" and "can"? Don't blind buy after you know it!
Looking at the world, there is no beverage marketing strategy comparable to Coke. As one of the world's most popular drinks, cola transcends regional and cultural differences, allowing people to not only feel like "drinkers" but also create their own "cola culture". It is not surprising that modern children, once having tried this taste, often fall in love with it.
In the past few years, there has been a lot of criticism about the effects of cola on health. But for those who love it, it seems that they cannot refuse it. There are several such friends around me, they can drink cola like water. In especially hot summers, Coca-Cola should be served chilled. As a "hardcore" Coke fan, I've been drinking Coke for decades, so I naturally have my own experience. They told me that even though they are cola, there is a big difference between bottled and canned! Why is this?
First of all, let's take a look at the ingredients of Coke. While Coke has always come up with a "mystery formula" gimmick, the formula is actually very simple. The "Empire of Coca-Cola" published by Huaxia Press in 2009 has a detailed description of the Coke formula. In addition to water, sugar, coconut, citric acid, caffeic acid, etc., the main material is carbon dioxide.
When I was a student, in a chemistry class, I mentioned that the main reason for the difference in the taste of carbonated drinks is carbon dioxide. The carbon dioxide mentioned here is the bubbles in cola. When drinking cola, the carbon dioxide quickly explodes at the tip of the tongue, giving people a strong sense of stimulation, thereby stimulating the brain. The higher the carbon dioxide content, the better the taste of the cola.
Coca-Cola, poured into different containers, has a different taste. Cola in plastic bottles, which are common on the market, are more likely to cause carbon dioxide to leak than metal atoms because the container is made of a polymer material. Thus, canned cola tastes better than bottled cola for this reason. But there is an exception in the bottle, occasionally you can see cola in a glass bottle, this cola has the best taste among all colas, but it is rarely sold. The second is Coca-Cola in metal cans, and the last is Coca-Cola in plastic bottles.
Fill containers are different, in addition to causing carbon dioxide to leak, and foreign matter can also easily get into it. That's why the shelf life of Coke in plastic bottles is only 9 months, while the shelf life of metal cans can be up to 12 months. So be careful the next time you buy a Coke and don't buy it indiscriminately!
We all know that Coke was originally introduced in the United States. Later, when it became popular, Coke adopted the original liquid + multi-component filler model. For this reason, among the cola we buy in China, we often see different processor companies printed on the bottle. Although the Coke Company has defended its own formula well, due to differences in the details of operations, there are slight differences in the taste of canned and bottled Coke produced by different manufacturers.
Summarizing, we draw the following conclusions depending on the taste difference caused by the level of carbon dioxide in the cola: glass bottle > metal can > small plastic bottle > large plastic bottle. In terms of taste, glass bottled Coke is the first choice, followed by cans and finally plastic bottles. Also, if you want the cola taste to have a higher carbon dioxide content, you can put it in the fridge at 3°C for 4-8 hours to get the best taste.
