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.

Worst design ever!

Pros

  • Its A Bottle

Cons

  • Bad Design
  • Ineffective

Best Uses

  • Carry Only Powder
  • Carry Only Water

Comments about GNC Shaker Bottle:

The person that designed this totally missed the point. Instead of something that actually aggravates the powder so it mixes, they put a worthless plastic ring around the top that really does nothing more than keep the bottle from collapsing on itself if it wanted. Powder goes to the bottom and then doesn't mix. Can't use on the go unless you carry utensils. Pay the extra $ for the one with the ball in it.

        Comments about GNC Shaker Bottle:

        I use this product when I want to make a quick shake and do not want to use the blender

        it has a great seal on it before I was writing this review I made a shake and I shook it upside down and the lid and all the other pieces stayed on and not one drop of the shake fell out

        I do not like how the GNC Live Well is chipping off but that is the only that I can find wrong with it!

            Comments about GNC Shaker Bottle:

            The cup leaks from the vent hole even if the vent cap is on. It is cheap, so dont even bother shaking anything inside it. It will leak all over if you want to put it in your bag or something. Spend the extra few dollars.

                Comments about GNC Shaker Bottle:

                Good size shaker bottle. But it needs to have the wire ball instead of the plastic to mix up protein drink. Wire ball is not as messy and mixes up easily.

                Comments about GNC Shaker Bottle:

                GNC's take on the Shaker Bottle is sub-par; they have the concept down, and the filter mixes powders just fine, but the lid does not screw on correctly most of the time, which leads to leakage. If I'm like everyone else, leakage is not preferred. This means a loss of your shake, which equals NO GAINS. If GNC fixed the lid on this, there would be nothing wrong with it.

                    I like that its shorter than the old one and I like that it doesn't seem to leak when you shake the bottle.

                      I Mix the Lean Shake 25 in it and all the powder gets stuck on the top plastic shaker part. I use it for my meals that I mix in my Vita Mix and it gets all the thick part of the juice stuck in the top and in the mouth piece. When you take the mouth piece cover off it pops all over the place.
