Does naturally carbonated water break the Eucharistic fast?


#1

For the purposes of the Eucharistic fast, is naturally occurring carbonated water, such as Perrier, equivalent to regular plain water in that it does not break the fast?

Please note, I am asking about water that comes out of the ground fizzy, with nothing added to it. I am not asking about Fitness Water, Fruit Water, Tonic Water, Club Soda or anything with added ingredients. Thanks very much,

Betsy

Hi,

Water with air bubbles does not break the fast.
