Is Sprite Alkalizing or Acid Forming?

    Citric acid, despite being an acid, has an alkalizing effect on the body (it tends to increase pH).

    Since Sprite has citric acid, I wonder what's its overall effect. It does have also some acid forming substances such as sugar and carbon dioxide.

    Drinking sprite never felt right to me, although I like the taste a lot.

    This may be why:
    YMMV

    I must admit, I haven't tried drinking it from a glass bottle.
