Our water

Composition

There are many different types of natural mineral waters. On the respective label we will find the composition of each water. As to current legislation, the waters are classified according to the minerals they contain and their concentration. This composition depends on the process of subterranean filtering the water has gone through before emerging to the surface.

Fonteide is very well balanced and low in fluor and sodium, and therefore recommended for the preparation of baby food.

Characteristics of Fonteide:

  • Natural mineral water of low mineralisation and thus diuretic.
  • Ideal for all those who have to control the intake of sodium: high blood pressure, heart problems, renal calculi and renal problems in general or fluid retention.
  • Contributes to stabilize the water balance and to prevent dehydration. The equalised composition provides minerals that are essential to the body.
  • Water with a low level of bicarbonate and calcium, slightly alkaline.
  • Soft water due to the low levels of calcium and magnesium.
