Minerals & Additives
Water contamination can be controlled with the application of proper water treatment chemicals, then treating with drinking water minerals and additives for desired end-use for various domestic and industrial purposes. One such use of these treatment chemicals are in packaged drinking water that includes use of food grade minerals with specific end-use, such as sodium bicarbonate, potassium bicarbonate, magnesium sulphate to increase water alkalinity and also to stabilize it, maintaining stricter quality.
Drinking Water Minerals
The mineral content of drinking water varies greatly across different geographical locations, but it can contain many of the key minerals needed for the human diet, including calcium, sodium, potassium, chloride, magnesium, iron, zinc, chromium and others.
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.
