Should You Drink Bottled Water?

by Jo-Ann Heslin, MA, RD, CDN on September 25, 2014 · 1 comment

From a nutrition standpoint, there is no advantage – water is water, as long as it is clean. But you might like the convenience, flavor or natural carbonation.

Bottled water is regulated for purity. Most bottlers belong to the International Bottled Water Association. There are no regulations, however, for enhancing bottled water and no oversight for some of the claims being made. Do you need vitamin or herbal enhanced water? Should you be paying a premium price for these miniscule additions? Does your water need to travel thousands of miles before you drink it? Did you know the sweeteners many producers put in bottled water are to mask the bitter taste of the added nutrients?

If the mild taste of flavored water gets you to drink more, or if you use it in place of higher calorie fruit drinks or soda, that’s fine. Paying for water with add-on is your choice, but it may not be the best investment you’ll ever make.
