Full Answer

Seltzer water, also known as sparkling water, is created by dissolving carbon dioxide in plain water, which creates carbonic acid. The process only adds bubbles to the water; the final beverage remains sugar-, calorie- and caffeine-free. Other types of carbonated water include tonic water, club soda and mineral water, but these types may have added ingredients like sweeteners, flavorings or sodium.
