So, what is dioxid de carbon?

Dioxid de carbon, also known as carbon dioxide, is a colorless, odorless gas that naturally occurs in the atmosphere and is produced by living organisms during respiration. In the food industry, it is commonly used as a preservative and a carbonating agent to add fizz to beverages like soda, beer, and sparkling water. It also plays a crucial role in the process of photosynthesis, where plants absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen. Carbon dioxide is considered a greenhouse gas and its increasing levels in the atmosphere contribute to global warming. However, in the food industry, it remains an essential ingredient for creating carbonated drinks and preserving certain foods.
