    Introduction: Dietary intake of young adults has been modified in the recent years. This decade has shown the increase in consumption of carbonated and energy drinks. People are unaware about the acidogenic ad cariogenic properties of the carbonated drinks which cause dental erosion, dental caries, etc. This study is done to evaluate the pH and buffering capacity of sports and energy drinks. Aim: The aim of this study is to determine the pH and buffering capacity of sports drink and energy drink. Materials and Methods: Three groups were selected of which Group 1 is mineral water, Group 2 is carbonated drinks, and Group 3 is energy drink. Before the study, the drinks were kept unopened and in normal room temperature. PH meter was used to measure the PH of each beverage. Buffering capacity was measured using the same pH meter at pH 5 and pH 7. The data are recorded in mean and standard deviation. Statistical Analysis:  Kruskal- Wallis Test was used to compare the mean differences of pH between the groups. Results: Results show that carbonated drinks are more acidic compared to energy drinks. Conclusion: Consumption of carbonated and energy drinks should be reduced amount youths since it causes dental erosion and other medical problems.
