What is the best-carbonated water to use for homemade soda?

Will homemade orange soda taste like Fanta?

No. Homemade orange soda will not taste like orange-flavored Fanta, and thank goodness for that! Did you know that the ingredients found in orange sodas similar to Fanta are far from healthy or safe? Sodas often include artificial ingredients like high fructose corn syrup, sodium benzoate, and red dye #40. But, we can avoid these by trying out healthy DIY soda recipes since these ingredients are not commonly used in home kitchens. Our Soda Sense DIY syrups are delicious as is, but the beauty of DIY-ing is you can tailor recipes to your liking. Think of our recipes as a guideline that can be adjusted to your liking!
