So Zevia, acceptable on occasion or do not drink?

As the title says, I like Zevia and it seems to be a fairly naturally based product that shouldn't cause a crazy insulin response or dissolving your bones. But it isn't water or tea either so....? Drink it or not?

Ingredients (from caffeine free cola): carbonated water, erythritol, caramel color, tartaric acid, reb A (stevia extract), fumaric acid, lime oil, lemon oil, natural falvors, cassia oil, nutmeg oil.

From what I understand phosphoric acid is what deteriorates bone. They use citric acid for the carbonization which, I am under the impression, does not have the same effect.

Can't find an ingredient label, but if Stevia is the only thing in there besides flavoring and carbonated water, it's nothing to worry about.

Stevia doesn't spike insulin either, btw.

I have been known to drink a Zevia on a special occasion when everyone else is enjoying a pizza and soda or something, but rarely. Best not to make a habit of it, the sweet flavor and carbonation can be addictive... But if you have mastered the art of moderation and it doesn't trigger a binge or sugar craving, I don't think it's a big deal at all to enjoy one now and again.

The cream soda is delicious by the way!

Carbonation weakens bones, so drink any carbonated beverage with caution.

I drink it on occasion. Every so often, I just want a cola. A six-pack lasts me around a month, so as you can tell, I don't drink it often.

If I want fizz, I also (especially during the summer down here on the Gulf Coast) will splurge on either kombucha, water kefir, or Kevita. Plenty of bubble, and very refreshing.
