where does the carbonation in carbonated drinks go after we drink them?


Some may be burped up. But carbonated drinks don’t usually cause a ton of gas. If we’re not burping or farting out the carbon dioxide, where does it go? Do we absorb it?


any carbonation that makes it to your stomach is going to be burped or farted out. just like all the other gasses that your digestive tract creates on its own. it doesn’t get absorbed.

You have to consider that unless youre chugging a brand new opened can/bottle, not much of the carbonation is going to make it to your stomach, hell all the fizzing you feel in your mouth is air escaping right there.
