What are the Difference between Natural mineral and bottled water?
Water makes about 65 percent of the human body, and we cannot exist for long periods of time without it. In order to keep ourselves healthy, water must be absorbed multiple times during the day. While the body can survive for three weeks without food, it can only survive for three days without water.
Everyone understands the necessity of drinking water and the benefits it provides to one's health. So there's no need for us to say it again. However, we've seen that many people are curious about the differences between bottled water and mineral water for drinking, and whether there is any difference at all.
What is 'Bottled' Water?
According to WHO, bottled water is packaged drinking water that has been treated with reverse osmosis (RO) membranes to reach a specific amount of desirable water characteristics. Carbonated or non-carbonated bottled water is also available everywhere.
The “Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS)”, which is India's national standards organisation and works under the Ministry of Consumer Affairs, Food & Public Distribution, is in charge of regulating bottled water. The Bureau of Indian Standards Act of 1986, which went into force on December 23, 1986, established it.
Bottled Water Specifications
1. TDS ranges from 60 to 150 mg/L

What is 'Natural Mineral' Water and What does it mean?
Natural mineral water is water from a mineral spring that contains salts and sulphur compounds, among other minerals. Depending on the presence or lack of additional gases, natural mineral water can be either still or sparkling. Underground reservoirs provide mineral water. Mineral water, unlike conventional drinking water, is not chemically treated.
Minerals commonly found in mineral water include
Natural Mineral Water has the following benefits
1. It is rich in natural minerals;
2. There are no preservatives added;
3. Its mineral make-up has not changed.
Depending on the water source and packaging, bottled water has a wide range of flavours. Natural Mineral Water, for example, has a distinct flavour that varies based on the types and degrees of minerals present. Because of their distinct flavour, some people prefer carbonated or flavoured waters.
