What is the difference between mineral water and soda?
Waters that naturally form at various depths of the earth under suitable geological conditions and spring at the surface from one of more sources, which are defined by their mineral content and other constituents and protected against all pollution risks, and which contain more than 1000 milligrams of dissolved minerals and more than 250 milligrams of natural carbon dioxide gas per litre, are called as natural mineral waters.
On the other hand, artificial drinking waters with no natural mineral source in which such minerals and carbon dioxide gas are added by chemical processes are called as soda.
What is the difference between sugar and fructose sugar?
Saccharide sugar, i.e. table sugar, is the type of sugar derived from sugar beet or sugar cane. On the other hand, fructose sugar is derived from corn.
No Kula mineral water product contains and will never contain any artificial sweetener or fructose sugar.
Our products only include one hundred percent natural sugar beet sugar.
Do all mineral waters have a mineral content as rich as the Kula mineral water?
Mineral water are classified under three groups, namely low-mineral, mineral and rich-mineral content groups.
Kula mineral water is in the richest mineral water content group in TURKEY with high amounts of calcium, magnesium, bicarbonate and potassium minerals up to the level of 3644 mg/L.
DRINK, AND SERVE, MINERAL WATER
Thanks to the various minerals in their content mineral waters provide positive effects for human health. For example, acute mortalities due to cardiac problems are seen less frequently in people who consume mineral waters with magnesium content, as well as a lower level of prostate and breast cancers. High calcium content strengthens the bones, protecting against osteoporosis, while the combination of calcium and magnesium help veins and muscles work in good order. Drinking mineral waters with high bicarbonate content helps regulate stomach acids in stomach problems involving acid excess, while also having positive effects on diabetes and regulating blood pressure. Sulphate content, on the other hand, helps the liver, the gallbladder and bile tracts work in good order.
MAGNESIUM IN MINERAL WATERS
Studies conducted on mineral waters show high magnesium content is important for cardiac and vascular health. It is proven that populations consuming waters with high magnesium content show less acute mortalities due to cardiac problems. There are also studies reporting lower incidence of prostate and breast cancers with use of high magnesium content waters. According to European Union legislation any mineral water with a minimum magnesium content level of 50 mg/L is considered as magnesium-rich water. In Germany this level is specified at 150 mg/L. A study conducted by our Department shows fourteen of the bottled mineral water brands marketed in Turkey have magnesium content levels above 50 mg/L, while two brands have this level above 150 mg/L.
CALCIUM IN MINERAL WATERS
As one of the most important elements in creating and maintaining healthy bones and teeth, calcium consumed in mineral water is as effective as calcium consumed in milk and dairy products. Many studies show that calcium consumed in mineral water with high calcium content provides active effect in bodies of women with post-menopause osteoporosis and help prevent osteoporosis. The European Union approved level of calcium in mineral waters is minimum 150 mg/L. Twelve bottled mineral water brands marketed in Turkey have calcium content above 150 mg/L, while five brands have calcium content above 300 mg/L.
BICARBONATE IN MINERAL WATERS
As the anion most frequently found in mineral water, bicarbonate has been known for its positive effects on digestion for a long time. Today it is proven that this type of mineral waters neutralise stomach acids in stomach problems involving acid excess (acid reflux), as well as balancing blood sugar metabolism in cases of diabetes. Due to its effect of increasing ureic acid discharge and preventing formation of kidney stones, bicarbonate waters are used as a supportive treatment option in treatment of gout and some kidney stones (ureic acid and cysteine stones). The European Union approved level of bicarbonate in mineral waters is 600 mg/L. Bottled mineral waters marketed in Turkey are quite rich in bicarbonate, with twenty brands exceeding this value.
SULPHATE IN MINERAL WATERS
Mineral waters with rich sulphate content provide positive results against constipation with their stimulating effect on digestive system. Their other beneficial effects on digestive system include stimulating the gallbladder and increasing bile production. In addition, especially waters with calcium sulphate content are found to be effective in preventing formation of calcium phosphate stones in urethrae. The European Union approved level of sulphate in mineral waters is minimum 200 mg/L. Sulphate levels in bottled mineral waters marketed in Turkey exceed this level in two brands, while others are close to this level.
In conclusion, mineral waters should be an indispensable part of our daily lives both as sources of minerals like magnesium and calcium required by our bodies and for their positive and healthy effects on our metabolism. Let's drink and serve at least 2 bottles of mineral water every day.
