Win one of ten sets of the AQUA Carpatica water range

Did you read our recent article looking at the Nitrates in bottled water?

Nitrates are fertilisers and can be traced in almost every bottled water on the market.  Found in nature and used in agriculture, they are colourless, odourless and tasteless but are pollutants, and in large quantities can be damaging.

Naturally Nitrate-free water is particularly important for pregnant women and new born babies as infants can become seriously ill if exposed to Nitrates. It has also been proven that birth defects are more likely to occur if expectant mothers are exposed to high levels of Nitrates.

In many European countries, legislation ensures that Nitrate (NO3) content in bottled water does not exceed 50mg per litre for adults, while for new born babies and pregnant women any more than 10mg per litre can be dangerous.

  1. I fill up empy plastic bottles with tap water and put them in the fridge so I always have nice cold water available

  2. It’s probably more bottled than tap for me…mainly because of the taste and the fact that I’m usually grapping it on the go. x

  3. I drink tap water all the time except when on holidays in countries where the tap water can make you ill.

  4. I drink both, I sometimes buy bottles but then when it’s empty fill it up with tap water lol x

  5. Bottled water if i just fancy water but if im drinking diluted squash, i always use tap water.

  6. I drink a mixture of both, tap at home and bottled when I’m out. I do buy bottled water for guests though.

  7. I prefer bottled, but I usually have tap with just a splash of no added sugar cordial to take the harsh taste away.

  8. A bit of both If I find Im thirsty when out I do buy the odd bottle of water as It is very rare for me to drink any kind of pop

  9. I drink tap water mostly. I do have the occasional bottled water but that’s normally if I’m out and about and haven’t thought to bring any with me.

  10. Mostly bottled, I hate the taste of our tap water, when I was pregnant with my 3rd child I couldn’t touch it, even the smell made me feel ill!

  11. Ive just returned to work from maternity leave, I tend to grab water on the go. So its bottles for me.

  12. If I am drinking plainwater, then I always prefer to use bottled water as I find it tastes just that little bit nicer, purer and fresher but if it is for adding to cordials or squash, I tend to just use tap water.

  13. I prefer drinking bottled water, I only have tap water when making cups of tea. We live in a rural farming area and I believe nitrate levels are high here in our tap water
