Drinking Sparkling Mineral Water – Taste or Health Benefits, or both?
Mineral water has long been praised and sought after by many individuals since the early years of imported European sparkling mineral water. At the time, it was likely thought to be a choice for the more sophisticated palate, or it was looked to as a way to incorporate essential minerals into one’s daily diet.
In 1977, the founders of Crystal Geyser Water Company decided to take on France and find a source for the best mineral water in the heart of the Napa Valley. Consulting geological maps, performing countless taste tests, and researching mineral water health benefits all played a role in the bottling of America’s first sparkling natural mineral water. In honor of this quest and the company’s founding year, 1977 Sparkling Mineral Water has been introduced in the company’s line of healthy beverages.
What is mineral water – a question often asked by the discerning consumer staring at a wall of bottled water in the grocery store. Mineral water originates from a geologically and physically protected underground water source, flows to the surface unaided or is pumped, and naturally contains at least 250 parts per million (ppm) of total dissolved solids (TDS). Many purified water brands add minerals for taste, but 1977 Sparkling Natural Mineral Water is a pure, natural mineral water infused with just the right amount of carbon dioxide to create a light, crisp mouth feel. 1977 also has a low sodium content as designated by the FDA. Mineral water is believed by many to be one of nature’s oldest “cures” providing health benefits such as: aid in indigestion, dental health, and support for some mineral deficiencies.
