We’re all aware of fluoride in water but beverages that contain fluoride could easily sneak up on you.
This can include any drink such as milk, juice, pop, wine, beer, energy drinks and even baby formula.
With that being said, it’s important to know where and how much fluoride is coming from what you drink…
What You Need To Know…
In just minutes you’ll learn everything there is to know about fluoride and beverages.
You’ll learn which beverages are high and low in fluoride.
You’ll be able to search the fluoride levels of 165+ beverages, including alcoholic, baby food, and everything in between.

Beverages HIGH In Fluoride
When it comes to how much fluoride is in a beverage, this depends on the fluoride levels of the:
- Water it’s made from
- Soil it’s grown in (ex. tea leaves)
- Sprays used while farming (ex. grapes)
Top 6 Beverages High In Fluoride
- Black Tea (3.73 ppm)
- Wine (1.53 ppm)
- Grape Juice (1.38 ppm)
- Coffee + Tap Water (0.91 ppm)
- Tap Water (0.81 ppm)
- Soda (0.78 ppm)
Beverages LOW In Fluoride
You may have noticed that coffee made both lists of beverages high and low in fluoride.
This solely has to do with the fluoride content of the water used during preparation.
As explained in fluoride in coffee, beans are typically low in fluoride (with a few exceptions) with the high levels of fluoride coming from tap water.
Which is also why soda, juice, and baby food may have high levels of fluoride.
Top 6 Beverages Low In Fluoride
- Filtered Water (0.00 ppm)
- Milk (0.03 ppm)
- Hard Liquor (0.08 ppm)
- Coffee + Filtered Water (0.10 ppm)
- Bottled Water (0.10 ppm)
- Herbal Tea (0.15 ppm)

3 Ways To Avoid Fluoride In Beverages
1. Avoid Processed Liquids
The more processed something is the more likely it contains high levels of fluoride.
This is why more “natural” liquids like milk, water and coffee tend to have low levels of fluoride.
2. Swap Tap Water For Fluoride-Free Water
The easiest and most important step in reducing your fluoride exposure is to use a water filter.
By using a filter you save lots of money compared to using bottled water without fluoride and make your life that much easier.
Now the good news is that I made the process of choosing a filter extremely easy.
After testing 32+ different filters, I’ve narrowed it down to the 3 best fluoride water filters (link to guide where I help you choose the right filter in under 10 minutes).
For example, Clearly Filtered (link to their website) is one of these three filters and the easiest and most popular way of getting started.
3. Drink Fluoride-Free Tea
Fluoride in tea is one of the most potent sources of fluoride you can come across.
However, this only applies to certain types of teas and with the right awareness you can dodge these dangerous levels of fluoride.
For example, it’s common for many brands of black tea to have fluoride levels over 3ppm!
Now for more information on which teas to avoid and which ones to consume, please refer to step 3 of the fluoride detox.
It’s within the fluoride detox guide that you’ll also find all 8 ways you can eliminate fluoride exposure and detox your body of accumulated fluoride… fun stuff!
Anyways, there you have it, the truth about fluoride in regards to beverages that contain fluoride.
