A Precious Asset, a resource to be protected
Water, which is often wasted in rich countries and scarce and often polluted in poor ones, is one of the resources that is most in need of development worldwide.
Water scarcity is a problem that affects the entire planet and therefore, protecting this precious gift, ensuring its distribution to all the people in the world without waste should be the priority of all the nations of the globe. (source: Altroconsumo)
A legislative decree of 8th October 2011, n. 176, which included a European directive, states that bottled water must be pure at the source and must remain pure until consumption, without any treatment. It must be chemically and microbiologically pure.
These are the main types of bottled waters:
this has a mineral salt content lower than 50 mg/l, which is light, poor in mineral salts and able to help water retention and facilitate the expulsion of small kidney stones.
Slightly mineralised (oligominerali):
this has a mineral salt content not exceeding 500 mg/l, is excellent table water, suitable for daily consumption as it contains little sodium and is excellent diuretic. Roana water belongs to this category.
this has a fixed residue between 500 mg/l and 1000 mg/l, contains a substantial proportion of mineral salts and should not be drunk in excessive quantities (up to a litre per day), care should be taken to alternate it with slightly mineralised water; it can be used in different ways depending on the substances contained such as calcium, sulfur, magnesium, bicarbonate, etc.
Rich in minerals:
it has a fixed residue of more than 1500 mg/l, it is very rich in salts so must be drunk specifically for healing purposes and on medical advice; it is available in pharmacies and also in some supermarkets.
