That spring must be officially recognized by government, with such recognition being granted only subsequent to independent studies of the water and the characteristics of the soil and subsoil layers from which the water is extracted. Natural mineral water has to be bottled at the spring. Only then may it be sold to consumers under this name. Furthermore, the water’s composition has to be stable, particularly its mineral content.
Our mineral water is thus water in its purest form, the way nature intended.
We have nature to thank for our mineral water’s unique composition. It is entirely free of pollutants. We remove only any excess of iron, because otherwise the water might leave rust spots on your clothing. As our water flows through the different underground layers, it acquires trace elements, minerals and other health-enhancing substances. Its quality is superior and its taste mild. Indications suggest that the mineral composition of our water promotes health and recuperation, because it is in perfect sync with the natural balance of the human body.
Experts from the Netherlands, China, South Korea and Japan hold the quality of our mineral water in very high esteem. Our Chinese customers ascribe healing medicinal benefits to our mineral water. This is especially relevant in the context of healthy aging, because as we age issues such as cartilage loss are among the most difficult for health care systems to address.
Water that is bottled at the spring, and moreover is certified as such, is called natural mineral water. If we used a tanker truck to transport our water from the spring to another location for bottling, we could call it spring water. Spring water has fewer requirements to meet (spring water, in principle, need not have any special physiological properties), neither does it need to be bottled at the source. Water labelled only “mineral water” or “spring water” is nothing more than packaged water.
Natural mineral water also costs more. The bottling process must meet extremely stringent demands, because, after all, natural mineral water contains no preservatives or other supplementary ingredients, which is also the reason for its higher price. You get a lot more value for your money, too. Compare it to the price premium on organic foods.
