Decarbonation of Soda Samples Using Rotor-Stator Based Methodology

Introduction

When conducting research for beverage development or during final product manufacture, quality analysis is a vital step in the process. When analyzing sugar-additives like aspartame, or quantification of other characteristic ingredients, like caffeine, decarbonation is a required step during sample preparation to ensure quality of downstream results.

In this work, we evaluate the OMNI THq Homogenizer and its ability to reduce pressure and CO2 volume in commercially available cola, diet cola and lemon-lime soda samples.
