I was making a nice cool  carbonated drink with my favorite  Xmode Cherry Bomb .  I added the Carbonation

and 2 oz  of Xmode and  then  I added a teaspoon of   Truvia.   The magic happened it fizzed out of the glass for some reason

just like adding mentos to pepsi.   What the hey.   Why did Truvia cause  a reaction to carbonated water?

Why did Truvia cause  a reaction to carbonated water?  .

 

Was the truvia powdered? If so, then I'm assuming it is a fine powder and thus has very high surface area with respect the the volume added. This would give CO2 bubbles lots of places to form.

 

I get the same kind of thing when pouring diet coke into a glass with ice straight from the freezer (but slightly melted or wet ice won't cause this issue.)

 

Anyone else?

This is not really a question that has anything to do with " Botanicals", but probably more suited to "General Discussions" .
