The Shocking Reaction You Will See When You Mix Coca-Cola And Milk


Coca cola has become a favorite pass time drink for everyone. I know this because you just drank it the other day. But today we are not going to stop at drinking it, we bring experiment that you have never thought of carrying out with your coke rather than just drinking it.

Have you ever imagined what the reaction could be if you mixed coke and milk? If you haven’t then embrace the stunt ahead. Surely, what you are about see in this video will not only fascinate you but also shock you. Yes, something you haven’t thought of.

I did not know it would get this interesting until one hour after mixing both Coco Cola and milk. The final product or mixture in the bottle appears to become crystal clear as brown sediment sink and rest at the bottom of the bottle. This is how to do it.

1. Get your bottle of coke and your little bottle of milk, you could use any brand of cola but note that coke works perfect. Get a new empty bottle, then pour the coke first into the empty bottle and fill it halfway. Now, pour the milk into the coke to fill the bottle. Replace the bottle cap and screw it on tightly. Then watch and see what happens.


2. Now, you’ll need to wait for sometime as you closely observe the milk and soda mixture in regular intervals like every half-hour or hour. As the clock ticks, the mixture settles, causing something like a separation. The soda goes down to the bottom of the bottle, and the milky liquid onto settles to transparent soda like the bottle in the photo below.


Still doubt it? Well watch the video and see for yourself if you still don’t believe the results.

Now the big question is, how in the world is this “clear soda” made?

Based on  the blog of Steve Spangler Science, a science gadgets and experiments website, Milk settles well with many substances including cereal, cookies, cake, and pie. But it’s really even more adorable when you blend milk and coke to get a big ol’ bottle of soda!

Even though the thought drinking coke or milk is refreshing, the thought of drinking soda and milk should be quite sickening, so remember that you aren’t supposed to take the mixture anywhere close to your mouth. Not even  a sip is advised! Rather, glance at the magic reaction that emerges when you mix the two liquids.

Asking why the separation does occur? Okay here is the answer.

The separation occurs because of a reaction between phosphoric acid and milk. Phosphoric acid molecules attach to the molecules of milk, increasing the density and separating them from the rest of the liquid. The remaining liquids, having less density than the phosphoric acid and milk molecules, floats on top.

Additionally, Phosphoric acid serves as a preservative in a variety of food and drinks including Coca‑Cola, Diet Coke, Coke Zero and Dr Pepper, not to mention ut a few. They are added in very small quantity to grant them their tartness and sweet flavour. I know what you thinking….. preservatives might be harmful? Not for this one, it is absolutely a safe food ingredient that is approved by national health authorities in all the countries where Coca‑Cola is sold. Coca-Cola also consist of a mineral called phosphorous found mainly in nature and plays a very key role in how our whole body earn energy. Now isn’t pretty shocking?
