cut out the citric acid in my diet due to weak teeth

This answer was rated:

I am diabetic and my dentist said I should cut out the citric acid in my diet due to weak teeth. Is there a beverage besides water that is safe for a diabetic that has no citric acid in it?

Hello,

Welcome to Just Answer and thanks for your question. Anything carbonated usually has come citric acid in it. So do most citrus flavored beverages, and citrus fruits. You can look at the package of any beverage and see if it has citric acid (or phosphoric acid) in it. Beverages like water, tea, and milk do not contain it (or at least not in any appreciable amount).
