I chose boiling it in a kettle in case boiling it on the hob would give it enough time to lose it fizziness anyway !


....so...my question is !..........can you boil fizzy water ?....does the boiling kill off the fizziness ?....can I then make fizzy cup-a-soup , tea and coffee!


Will the actual boiling itself be wild and frenzied ?



As a firm believer in empirical study, and unless a definitive answer is forthcoming, I will definitely try this next time I have some fizzy water !!

The solubility of gasses in water reduces with temperature, so as you raise the temperature the CO2 will fizz out gently until at the boiling point there will be virtually none left.

This is why as you boil normal water small bubbles form long before it boils, these are dissolved oxygen CO2 and nitrogen  from the air that is coming out of solution.
