By law, all bottled water in Canada must comply with the Food and Drug Act established by Health Canada and the label has to indicate the type of water, the source, the mineral content and any additives.
Educate yourself on terms like ‘purified water’ and ‘drinking water’ as they likely indicate good old-fashioned tap water. If the label doesn’t indicate the source as an underground spring or well, it likely wasn’t bottled from one.
The mineral content can also help determine the pH of the water, which should ideally be between 7.2 and 7.8.
