Are ice tea bottles like Lipton considered to be carbonated drinks like coke and 7up? I have issues in my GI (Gastro Intestinal) tract and I cannot tolerate coke and other carbonated drinks, I am just wondering if ice tea is a carbonated drink that might cause me discomfort.

  • Can you be more specific, both about which carbohydrates you can't tolerate and which type of ice tea (flavour, diet or not, etc)? Carb/sugar content varies between types. But in general, commercial iced tea contains about as much sugar as soda does.

    Most iced tea is not carbonated; just look at the labels.

The word "Soft drink" stems from drinks with No alcohol in them. ice tea is a "Soft drink" But is not carbonated.


Many major brands of iced tea are not carbonated. However there are a few that are, such as this brand. It should specify on the container.
