Coke - just a soft drink
A short time ago I discovered something real cool. After pouring my friend and myself a glass of coke, I accidently spilled some. So I got a Cloth and cleaned it up.. But what astonished me, was that this sticky stuff went away real easy and the tiles were cleaner than before. That seemed sort of strange to me, so I took a look at the ingredients of Coke.
„carbonated Water, Sugar, caramel color, phosphoric acid, natural flavorings, caffeine“
phosphoric acid? I didn't know what that was, so I went and googled it...
And this is really interesting. What I read there was, that phosphoric acid is used to make laundry soap and also used as rust remover.. Also I read that it is used in the food industry to create a sour taste, like for example in Coke. they also use it to conserve food. And of course, I read that it is not bad for us. That sounds pretty reassuring, doesn't it?

Food that makes us addicted!?
Just eating something because it tastes great - without really thinking about it - does that happen to you, too sometimes?
Yes, dear Kids and Teens, that's what I want to talk about today...
Or do you always think about, if what you're eating is healthy or not? It just has to taste good, right?
Not only with myself but also with other kids in my school I notice this sometimes.
