It’s pretty obvious that mineral water is, well, water with minerals, but what minerals? Doesn’t all water have minerals? - Aliza Abarbanel
We are charged for the mineral water. But how many of us know what we actually get is “de-mineralized water”. Will you ever eat some food that has no calorie in it and is yet very expensive??
You might be surprised to know that most of the bottled water that is sold in the market has no minerals in it! But it is never acknowledged. In the process of purification treatment, through reverse osmosis (RO), most of the minerals are lost, and demineralized water can adversely impact our health. But again no one seems to care.
Traditionally, mineral waters were used or consumed at their spring sources, often referred to as “taking the waters” or “taking the cure,” at developed cities such as spas, baths, or wells. The term spa was used for a place where the water was consumed and bathed in; bath where the water was used primarily for bathing, therapeutics, or recreation; and well where the water was to be consumed. In modern times, it is far more common for mineral water to be bottled at the source and widely distributed for consumption.
Mineral water plays a more and more important role in daily life. Generally, the consumption of mineral water is constantly increasing in the world, especially in developed countries, where the environment is well protected and people require water of high quality.
