Calories from soft drinks

How many calories do the most consumed non-alcoholic beverages provide? Find out with our table or list with information on the kilocalories of non-alcoholic beverages.

Whenever we talk about the calories in beverages, the most common and usual thing is to refer only to the calories in alcoholic beverages, mainly because they tend to be the ones with the highest caloric content, and therefore contribute to our body after consumption.

In the same way, when we follow a certain weight loss diet, the most normal thing is to look at the caloric content of the foods we consume, but not in the drinks that we drink more or less regularly.

For example, in the aperitif or during the meal it may be usual to have a glass of beer or a glass of wine, but if yours is not alcohol, you will surely opt for other drinks that – nevertheless – do provide calories, as is the case of a glass of soda or even a glass of juice (obviously, not freshly made natural, but the packaged juices that we buy in the supermarket).

It is recommended to always opt for water instead of any other drink when not only to reduce thirst, but even at mealtime, and only leave alcoholic drinks for special occasions or simply for toasts.

Below we propose a list of calories that certain highly consumed non-alcoholic beverages provide you, by caloric content of a glass of drink:

Mineral water 0 kcal
Tonic waters 70 kcal
Packaged fruit juice 85-90 kcal
Cola drink 90-130 kcal
