Random Fact About Bottled Beverages

Did you know that some plastic bottles are sanitized before filled with liquid, and others are not?

I learned today that carbonated water does not allow bacteria to grow, and that pure water has the same effect, because it does not contain sugar.

However, for other beverages in bottles, such as Gatorade and fruit drinks, the bottle needs to be sanitized. Many beverage manufacturers will either use chemicals or they will heat the liquid before it is placed in the bottle. This results in a sanitized plastic bottle that can be filled with the liquid

How about that? Just a random fact I learned thanks to my job.
