We’re all aware of fluoride in water but drinks that contain fluoride could easily sneak up on you.
With that being said, it’s important to know where and how much fluoride is coming from what you drink… So I’ve put together a table where you can search the fluoride levels of 143+ different drinks like milk, pop, wine, beer, energy drinks and even baby formula.
Fluoride In Drinks…
When it comes to fluoride in drinks, levels range greatly from one drink to another. While tap water contains an average of 0.7 ppm of fluoride, according to the USDA drinks like milk contain 0.03 ppm. While black tea can contain upwards to 3.73 ppm and white wine at 2.02 ppm of fluoride.
However, in just minutes you’ll learn everything there is to know about fluoride and drinks.
You’ll learn which drinks are high and low in fluoride. Plus be able to search the fluoride levels of 143+ beverages, including alcoholic, baby food, and everything in between.
Not only that, we’ll also go through 3 tips to help you and your family avoid drinking fluoride.
Drinks 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
- Sprays used while farming
- Ingredients it’s made from
For example, when it comes to fluoride in tea (link to article where you can search the fluoride levels of 329+ teas) there’s a huge difference in fluoride levels from one type of tea to another. Herbal tea is almost always fluoride-free while something like green tea can have levels as high as 3.2 ppm. This all depends on the type of tea and soil it’s grown in.
Now usually fruit is low in fluoride.
But when it comes to grapes, they are often sprayed with fluoride based pesticides. So as a result, grape juice is regularly high in fluoride.
Top 6 Drinks 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)
Drinks 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) while the high levels of fluoride come from tap water.
Which is also why soda, juice, and baby food may have high levels of fluoride. As it may be made or mixed with tap water that contains fluoride.
It’s also important to note, not all bottled water is low in fluoride. To know for sure, you should search whatever brand you’re interested in at bottled water without fluoride. That’s where you can search the fluoride levels of 286 different brands.
Top 6 Drinks 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. In fact, when I don’t have access to water I trust. I drink less water but consume more liquids from sources like coconut water, fresh fruit juice, and raw grass-fed milk.
You could say nature got it right.
2. Ditch Tap Water For Good
The easiest and most important step in reducing your fluoride exposure is to ditch tap water and start using and drinking fluoride-free water.
This way whenever you make coffee, tea, or anything else that requires water – you don’t consume fluoride. You can either do this by using bottled water or you can use a water filter. But my personal favorite option is a water filter just because I know if I get a quality filter, I don’t have to worry about anything.
Now if you’re not sure what filter is best, good news is that I made the process of choosing a filter extremely easy. After testing 33+ 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).
But if you don’t have time to read the article, sign up to my email list and I’ll send you a report of all 33+ filters I’ve tested. Many brands lie that their filter can remove fluoride, so you should know the truth before you buy.

This report includes all types of filters too. Including reverse osmosis, distillers, shower filters, Berkey’s and a bunch of water filter pitchers.
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, which is more than 4X what’s found in tap water!
While something like herbal tea is always fluoride-free…
