Which Is The Best Bottled Water
To be completely fair and unbiased one must allow each individual to determine what they mean when referring to their favorite bottled water. The best bottled water quality: pH 4.4-7.8, tds 40-225 mg/l.

TDS (Total Dissolved Solids)
- Maximum Contaminant Level for tds in drinking water at 500 mg/l. for aesthetic purposes. Water with a very low tds, say 30 or less, will have a sharp crisp taste, perhaps considered "clean" by some. A bigger tds, in the range of 150
to 250, provides more "mouth feel" or "taste". Returning momentarily to the issue of preference, some people may enjoy the distinct flavor of the mineral waters such as Perrier or Pellegrino. It is the high tds and high sulfates that
contribute to the unique taste. Preferred range a water (tap or bottled) with a tds in the range of 40 to 225.
- Water with pH of 7.4 to 7.6 is ideal. this is the pH of human blood and optimum for drinking water. Some people prefer to drink highly alkaline water, in the range of 8 to 9. And while some people may enjoy the taste of low pH
- A number of studies funded by the World Health Organization that people who drink water containing minerals experience lower rates of disease than those who drink water with the minerals removed. Of specific concern are the
presence of calcium and magnesium in water. Both contribute significantly to an individual's health. One Canadian study compares the mineral content and potential effects of minerals in water.
- To some consumers, best might be found in a particularly delightful taste. Others might be drinking bottled water to achieve health benefits not found in untreated tap water. Many people in the US today are drinking bottled water
because of a growing fear of the contaminants in tap water. To be completely fair and unbiased one must allow each individual to determine what they mean when referring to their favorite bottled water.
- Increasingly there are growing concerns about the leaching of phthalates, known endocrine disrupters, as well as antimony from water in plastic bottles. Other health concerns that pertain to bottled water include the physical
characteristics of the water, including pH (acidity) and the presence of absence of minerals.
