Sparkling Water Contains Up To 11 Times More Salt Than Tap Water

06.10.2014

Sparkling water is seen by many as a healthy alternative to soft drinks, and is that bit more exciting than tap water.

However, sparkling water may not contain the same numbers of sweeteners and additives that fizzy drinks do, they have been found to contain up to 11 times more salt water than a drink straight from your kitchen tap.

                 

 

 

 

                                                                                     Salt p/Litre     Content compared to tap water

Badoit Naturally Sparkling Natural Mineral Water         0.45g                     11.25 times more

San Pellegrino Sparkling Natural Mineral Water            0.08g                      2 times more

Buxton Sparkling                                                            0.06g                      1.5 times more

Wenlock Spring Sparkling Water                                    0.06g                      1.5 times more

 

It seems that the more luxurious the brand, the higher the salt content. The first example given above; Badoit sparkling water, contains 8% of your recommended daily intake of salt.

Consuming too much salt can cause a vast range of health problems, including, raised blood pressure, kidney problems and an increased risk of heart disease or stroke.

These health risks are not thought about when simply buying a bottle of sparkling water. In fact, your intentions are probably the opposite. In order to avoid this hefty salt consumption, simply be sure to check the back of your bottle.
