TheDailyMeal: What You Didn't Know About Your Bottled Water

3 of 10

2. Dasani

Well, this would have been a much easier task had there been a website for Dasani other than a garbled Facebook page. (No, I do not want to do a Flavor Dance for Dasani Drops.) The Coca-Cola website was no help, either. Instead, we had to go off what the label said.

Does it list its treatment process: No
However, the ingredients label reveals something interesting: it contains water, magnesium sulfate, potassium chloride, and salt. With an asterisk, the label says the salt "adds a negligible amount of sodium," and "minerals added for taste." We'll see how that does. Magnesium sulfate, as defined by the EWG, is "an inorganic salt; found in sea water and in mineral deposits" and is a safe food additive as defined by the FDA; potassium chloride is another inorganic salt with the same safety status.

Does it list its sources: Yes, if you know what to look for
The label says "purified water," which our sources say is a sign that it’s really filtered municipal water — and that’s what the company has admitted to over the last few years.

Does it list its water quality analysis: No
How does it taste: Number two out of 10, with a score of 81.25
"Refreshing," "clean," "sharp," and "mineral" were the most commonly used words to describe Dasani.
