Steve Spangler Science: Invisible Soda

Add milk to a dark cola and watch a chemical reaction clear up things in no time.

A glass of cold milk goes great with a lot of things: cereal, cookies, cakes, pies, etc. However, it’s not such a good match-up with a dark-colored soda pop. Milk and soda pop are both mostly water but each has ingredients that make for an unexpected reaction when they combine. This experiment may help you understand why some people suggest that soda pop may be stealing a vital nutrient from your body. It’s time to “clarify” things.
