After Drinking Excess Of Cold Drink Person Suffered From Acidity Explain

After drinking excess of cold drink, a person suffered from acidity. Explain.


Cold drinks contain carbon dioxide dissolved in them under pressure. Some amount of the gas escapes when a bottle of cold drink is opened while a portion of it remains dissolved. Carbon dioxide dissolved in water forms a weak acid, carbonic acid. Consumption of excess of cold drink causes accumulation of carbonic acid in the stomach which is responsible for the development of acidity.
