How can you determine the acidity of foods?

To measure acidity, food must be in liquid form. For this reason, solid foods should be blended in a blender. You can mix distilled water with the liquid if you need it. Distilled water is neutral and will not alter the pH. You can dip a pH tester strip into the liquid.



How do you determine the acidity of a beverage?

What is an acidic beverage? What is considered an acidic drink?

The pH of something can also be tested in the same way.

Take a small amount of water and test the pH. After you have collected your sample, you can prepare your probe by running the probe under clean water or taking your litmus paper from its packaging. Place the test in water. A few seconds in the water should be enough to give you a clear reading for litmus paper.
