Ever find yourself confused about the different types of bottled water? You’re not alone! For the longest time, I honestly had no idea what distilled water was! It seems like such a simple answer but I just never knew! Luckily I gathered information on the main types of waters and made a list for you guys to check out! So here you go!

Mineral Water

  • Water obtained from under ground sources that are protected. Usually its “sparkling” which means it contains natural carbon dioxide making it bubble.

Spring Water 

  • Underground water that flows naturally to the earth’s surface or could be pumped from the source. “Natural spring water” means it hasn’t been processed in any way.

Bulk Drinking Water  

  • Tap or spring water that’s filtered with ozone. The minerals are removed and may be re-added.

Artesian Water

  • Water from an underground rock formation that comes to the surfaces naturally through a man-made hole known as a well.

Distilled Water

  • Is produced by vaporizing the water, then condensing it in a way that takes out all dissolved minerals. Rain is a perfect example of naturally distilled water. There is a lot of controversy of whether or not one should drink distilled water.

Purified Water 

  • Usually used in labs and for medical purposes, this water is treated by chemical or physical processes to remove the dissolved solids, including minerals.

Seltzer and Soda 

  • Filtered and artificially carbonated tap water that usually has added sweeteners and sodium. This is considered soft drinks, resort to Mineral Water for a natural and healthier alternative.

If you drink bottled water often, follow these simple tips to make sure your drinking water is as pure and safe as possible.

  • Try to buy your water in glass containers, the plastic bottle has been shown to contaminate the drinking water.
  • Choose products from companies that belong to the International Water Association (IBWA), they follow the FDA’s bottled water standards.
  • Don’t drink plastic bottled water that sat in the car for long periods of time, recent research has shown it can become VERY toxic.
