Bottled Water: What's the Difference?

Bottled Water: What's the Difference?
How to choose among the hundreds of varieties
Bottled Water: What's the Difference?: Main Image
Many people go for bottled over tap water because they prefer its taste and clarity

Cruising down the beverage aisle, you'll find a wide variety of bottled water brands in varying shapes and sizes. Some neatly fit into your car's cup holder. Others have pull-up tops that won't get lost on the soccer field. The latest wave to hit the shelves is "enhanced" water, which can include flavors, vitamins, minerals, and electrolytes.

What's the difference between types of bottled water?

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has established a "Standard of Identity" to define different types of bottled water, based on the products' specific characteristics:

  • Spring water-This comes from an underground formation from which water flows naturally to the surface of the earth, and must be collected only at the spring or through a borehole that taps the source.
  • Purified drinking water-This has been processed to remove chlorine and a majority of dissolved solids such as magnesium.
  • Naturally sparkling water-This is naturally carbonated from a spring or artesian well.
  • Artesian water or artesian well water-It comes from a well that taps a confined aquifer (a water-bearing underground layer of rock or sand).
  • Mineral water-Typically spring water, it contains no less than 250 parts per million of total dissolved solids like calcium, magnesium, sodium, potassium, silica, and bicarbonates. No minerals can be added to this product.

Which tastes better?

Many people go for bottled over tap water because they prefer its taste and clarity. Tap water contains chlorine to kill bacteria and other micro-organisms, which can make it taste like "pool water." Many bottled water manufacturers use ozone (supercharged oxygen) or ultraviolet light to disinfect the water. Unlike chlorine, neither of these alters the taste.

Is bottled water safer?

Experts can't agree on whether bottled water is safer than tap, but both must meet government safety standards. Tap water is regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and bottled water is regulated by the FDA as a food product. In fact, bottled water must meet the same strict standards set by the EPA for public drinking water systems. What's more, the FDA requires that bottled water be packaged in a sanitary environment in safety-sealed containers.

What about flavored water?

These fruity beverages might taste good, but technically they're not bottled water. The FDA emphasizes that water with certain ingredients or additives may be classified as a soft drink or dietary supplement. For example, soda water, seltzer, and tonic are not bottled water. The same goes for carbonated water beverages like "enhanced water," which can contain more than 80 calories per serving.

      Comments about GNC Pro Performance® Shaker Cup:

      Great overall design and look. I like the size and the feel when holding it. It's easy to drink out of BUT unfortunately that is all ruined by the poor lid design. I have read the reviews and followed the advice of others in the reviews and yet my lids don't lock in properly cause leakage when mixing (only if the shaker 3/4 full or more). It can't be a defect as I bought 2 of these and both have the same issue. I tried pressing down hard on the lid to try and lock it and cracked one of them.

      It's the in part of the lid that doesn't lock in and I believe what's causing it is the curved design that the lid is connected to as it restricts the lid from going down further.

      I can only use it as a drinking cup now rather than a shaker cup

      Again it's a real shame because I really really like the over all design and look of it :(

            Comments about GNC Pro Performance® Shaker Cup:

            This thing is hard to get sealed for shaking. It never seems to stay closed as the odd shaped top is just awful. When you do want it open, it is difficult to get under the malformed lip to lift it. Good luck getting it closed again. I am throwing this away and getting a normal Blender bottle.

              I like the new design. I still use the stainless stel ball from my old one, mixes well, almost no lumps in Whey or Casein. Easy to clean.

                Comments about GNC Pro Performance® Shaker Cup:

                By far the best product I've used for my pre workout shakes. It has a rim in the center and it actually does what it says and prevents the residue from getting stuck in the drinking cap. It's easy to clean and it isn't messy at all if you use it correctly. You have to tighten the top all the way and then turn it a little harder at the end, you'll feel it lock in place. The you have to click both sides of the lid because it is oval shaped for it to completely lock in place and then go ahead and shake it like a maniac nothing will spill I promise. The only thing I don't like about is is the oval mouth piece to drink is pretty big so I have to put my entire mouth around it so I don't spill it on me while I'm working out. All in all it doesn't stop me from using it.
