Fruit-flavored soft drinks

Soft drink can be defined any type of nonalcoholic beverage produced by a soft drink manufacturer; includes bottled water, but not tap water. While fruit-flavored drink is a soft drink that is flavored to taste like fruit but does not contain juice.

The fruit flavors for soft drinks include: cherry, wild cherry, lemon, strawberry, raspberry, orange, pineapple, grape, loganberry, apple, pear, peach, and others less widely distributed. These flavors are of two general types, those which are obtained from natural products, such as the root, bark, leaf, and fruit of plants or trees, and those made in the laboratory by synthesizing or combining two or more chemicals.

Fruit-flavored soft drinks such as orange and lemon-lime often contain natural fruit extracts. Citric acid is an important processing ingredient in various fruit of flavor soft drinks. The citric acid levels in most fruit flavored carbonate drinks range from 0.10 to 0.25%.

An important advantage of added citric acid in beverages is its ability to provide a pleasant tartness and acid taste that complements fruit, berry, and other flavors.
