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

7 of 10

6. Glacéau Smartwater

Does it list its treatment process: Sort of
If you can get through the sing-songy descriptor on the label and website, you’ll find that the water is vapor distilled, with added electrolytes. It basically says it mimics the process of rainwater. However, a bottled water report goes into more detail about how it’s purified: with charcoal filtration, vapor distillation, ultraviolet light disinfection, re-mineralization (if that’s a word), and ozonation.

Does it list its sources: Yes
From its bottled water report: "Most facilities that purify and bottle Smartwater procure water from municipal water systems. At a few plants, however, water is obtained from protected groundwater sources managed by the bottling plant, with approvals from local authorities."

Does it list its water quality analysis: Yes
Again, from the same bottled water report, Smartwater breaks down all of the minerals and elements found in its water in a typical analytical report. 

How does it taste: Number six out of 10, with a score of 74.08
Clean was the all-around description of it, but others said it felt heavy and others said it felt soft.
