Minerals & Additives in Packaged Drinking Water

Proper Water Treatment Chemicals are meticulously crafted to address water quality challenges. These chemicals play an essential role in neutralizing contaminants, ensuring that drinking water is not only safe but also of the highest quality.

One such use of these treatment chemicals is in packaged drinking water which includes the use of food-grade minerals with specific end-use, such as sodium bicarbonate, potassium bicarbonate, and magnesium sulfate to increase water alkalinity and also to stabilize it, maintaining stricter quality.


Minerals and Additives Excellence in Packaged Drinking Water

Minerals and Additives enhance the natural goodness of the water. Balanced Minerals optimize pH levels and create an environment for enhanced hydration.

Here are the key reasons:

Balanced Mineral Content: The addition of minerals like calcium, magnesium, and potassium helps achieve a balanced mineral content in the water.

pH Regulation: Additives are often used to regulate the pH levels of water.

Enhanced Hydration: Minerals can enhance the hydrating properties of water.

Enhancing Disinfection: Additives, with chemicals, aid in water treatment for disinfection.


According to WHO, tap water can provide up to 20 percent of the dietary intake of calcium and magnesium, but for the rest of the minerals that figure is less than 5 percent. Calcium and Magnesium hold the highest percentage of the required Total Daily Intake (TDI) provided by water.


Chemtex mineral additives are licensed under FSSAI (Category 99 - Substances added to food).

Food grade mineral additives are specifically geared towards using with drinking water as the most logical solution to demineralization of water after filtration. If the RO system does not feature an alkalinization stage, mineral additives can be added without too much effort.

Water temperature, flow rate and pH-levels determine how much minerals are added back into the water. Alkaline water filters re-filter the water before adding calcium, magnesium and other minerals back into it and thereby balancing pH-levels.
