      Great question! When it comes to which bottled water is best, it really depends upon what you are looking for (cost, specific mineral content, least likely to contain microbes, environmentally friendly, etc…). Also, taste and quality of bottled water will vary among and even within brands depending on the source and quality of the water at the time of harvest. The best way to learn about the specific bottled water you are drinking, is to read its label and/or contact the producer directly. On the label, you’ll be able to identify the type of bottled water, its source, and the way in which it was treated. Here’s a link to an excellent resource that outlines the ins-and-outs of different types of water and what to look for http://www.epa.gov/safewater/faq/pdfs/fs_healthseries_bottlewater.pdf. I also recommend checking out this website: http://www.bottledwaterweb.com/. You can pick different brands of bottled water and view a complete water analysis along with other pertinent information including the company’s contact information. Based on the information from these resources, you can decide which type best fits what you are looking for. Whichever bottled water you choose, know that the FDA regulates all bottled water to ensure it is safe for consumption (http://www.fda.gov/food/resourcesforyou/consumers/ucm046894.htm ) just as the EPA regulates tap water. I hope this information is helpful! – Alexandra Miller, RDN, LDN
