This is the brand of carbonation systems for home use. They were invented in the early 1900s to add carbon dioxide (CO2) to drinking water. In those days these were called “apparatus for aerating liquids”. The more recent versions allow for adding flavored concentrates and before you know it – you have homemade carbonated, flavor drink or soda.
The very first machines made were rather big and were sold to the houses with more people of the upper classes of London, like the royal household. There were flavors with unusual names, one being the famous sarsaparilla released in the 1920s. The commercial carbonation machines were also introduced in the 1920s and were very well liked. The first smaller machines for home carbonation was manufactured in 1955.
Because of so many forms of concentrate, different and exclusive flavors of soft drinks can be produced. In the days when the systems were most favored, many well-known brands were designed for SodaStream from the concentrate such as Fants, and Sunkist.
In the early 1990s, the business merged with Soda-Club and it has since relaunched with a marketing plan geared more towards health or healthiers drink for kids or families.
