How Much Sodium in Drinking Water is Considered Safe?

The RDI for adults is 6g, but at present there is no obligation for soft drinks firms to show on the label how much of this guideline amount their products contain.

All sparkling water labels list their salt content under its chemical name sodium, leaving some consumers unsure of what theyare drinking.

To work out the amount of salt in grams from the sodium content on the label, they would have to divide by 1,000 and multiplyby2.5.

The recommended daily intake (RDI) of salt for adults, with 0.45g per litreSonia Pombo, nutritionist at Consensus Action on Salt and Health, said: ‘Not many people would think to check the label on theirbottle of water, and so would not know that it might contribute to their daily salt intake.

‘The higher our salt intake, the greater our risk of high blood pressure –the major cause of heart disease and strokes.’

What’s the difference between Natural Mineral Water and Spring Water?

Spring Water is bottled water which does not conform to the Natural Mineral Water Regulations, but which nevertheless must meet the ‘Tap Waters Regulations‘
at the time of sale. Under EEC Regulations Spring Water must conform to the same criteria as Natural Mineral Water with one important exception, Spring waters
do not have to prove a consistent mineral content. However, under current UK law, Spring waters may also be treated.
