What’s in the different bottled water on the market?

Spring waterComes from an underground water source (not a public community supply). It should contain fewer than 500 parts per million of total dissolved solids.

Mineral waterAlso comes from an underground source but has more than 500 parts per million of dissolved solids. This type of water comes in still and sparkling form.   

Drinking water – This type of bottled water can come from any source, usually municipal, and has been purified by a process like distillation, deionization or reverse osmosis.

Carbonated spring waterWater that contains natural or added carbonation from a spring. It has a lower mineral content than mineral water. Soda, seltzer and tonic water are soft drinks, not bottled waters.
