Club soda has added minerals to enhance its flavor, but it does not have any sugar. This makes it a good alternative to plain water if you want to increase your fluid intake without consuming extra calories. Bartenders use club soda to make more than 300 mixed drinks, but you do not have to mix it with alcohol to enjoy its flavor. Drink it plain, or add your favorite fresh fruits for a little variety.

Calorie Content and Energy Sources

Club soda has no calories, protein, fat or carbohydrates. This makes it a good base for low-calorie flavored drinks. Add lemon or lime wedges for a refreshing citrus drink, or flavor your club soda with cubes of fresh watermelon. If you use 8 ounces of club soda instead of 8 ounces of cranberry juice as a mixer, you will avoid consuming an extra 140 calories and 36 grams of sugar.

Mineral Content

Carbonated water contains small amounts of calcium, magnesium, potassium and iron. One 8-ounce serving of this drink contains 50 milligrams of sodium, so keep this in mind if you are following a low-sodium diet. One serving will not increase your sodium intake very much, but drinking four or five 8-ounce servings of club soda per day will add an extra 200 to 250 milligrams of sodium to your diet.
