Filling Bags with Carbonated Beverages
The drink in a bag is not a very common sight in the states. But, in other countries like Spain or Singapore, you can see pouches filled with drinks. The benefits of bags over bottles for drink storage include bags being lighter and easier to carry. Flask bags are also more concealable, and easier to transport on motorcycles or backpacks. Filling these bags with carbonated beverages requires a certain technique to maintain the carbonation and flavor of the drink. This guide will go over how to fill our bottle pouches with carbonated liquids.
Keep in Mind
When dealing with carbonated liquids, there are things to keep in mind. First, the more exposure the liquid has to oxygen, the quicker it will lose its carbonation or go flat. This can be prevented by keeping the liquid in an airtight container at all times. Our bottle pouches are made with an impermeable material and have a screw-on cap to limit any exposure to the open air. Another factor to remember is that colder liquids will not lose carbonation as fast as warmer liquids. Keep your carbonated drinks cold and it will stay fizzy for a longer period. Finally, remember that carbonated liquids create a pressurized environment within the storage vessel. Your container should be able to expand slightly without breaking if it is going to hold a carbonated liquid. With all these factors in mind, let's proceed to the filling instructions.
- Remove your carbonated beverage from the refrigerator.
- Place a funnel into the opening of the bottle pouch.
- Slowly pour the liquid into the funnel and allow it to pour down into the pouch.
- Wait for the fizz to dissipate if it forms.
- Continue pouring until the pouch is 3/4ths of the way full.
- Screw on the cap.
- Store in the refrigerator or cooler to ensure there is no loss in carbonation.
