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

4 of 10

3. Aquafina

Does it list its treatment process: Yes
On its website, you can watch a demo of its treatment process: prefiltration, filtration, "intense light" (which we can only assume are UV rays), reverse osmosis, charcoal filtration, polishing filter, and ozonation.

Does it list its sources: Yes
The Aquafina website links to its bottler and water source information.

Does it list its water quality analysis: Yes
On the Aquafina website, there is a 2011 sample water quality analysis as an example, with the note: "Our Aquafina plants each conduct on average 320 tests daily, 1950 tests weekly, and — when we include off-site monitoring, 102,000 tests annually to assure the consistent quality of our Aquafina bottled water."

How does it taste: Number three out of 10, with a score of 78.66
"Virtually no taste," said one tester — which may be why Aquafina won over so many testers. Still others said they detected a sour flavor or an aftertaste from the water; one commented on a "super plastic-y" taste.
