Broken: Mineral water label

This is the bottle of Perrier I was drinking when reading It is an oxymoron - "low mineral content" mineral water? I better get what I paid for!


Well, If it had a HIGH mineral content, wouldn't it taste bad?

Perhaps it is a misprint and should read "Low Sodium Content" as many mineral waters do.

Sorry to say, there are no regulatory requirements for mineral water in the u.s. A friend who actually bottles water has mineral watet by definition but markets it as "bottled water"

Water sales are truly the last vestige of snake oil men.
