The dry residue of Pineo mineral water

Water, its taste and flavour

What is the dry residue of water?

The dry residue of water is what remains after the water has evaporated. In principle, these are the minerals that are in the water.

Minerals in water are necessary for bio-chemical reactions in our bodies. Minerals cause active reactions in our body. Without minerals we are dead. But water without minerals also is dead water. Fish die in distilled water. In other words, in water without minerals, all life dies.

Pineo voted the tastiest water in the world

Pineo was nominated together with 50 other top brands of water from all over the world. Five judges, consisting of water connoisseurs and water sommeliers blindly assessed the various brands of water and gave individual points. Pineo won gold in the top category of water with a low mineral content (less than 250 mg) without added carbon dioxide.

How much dry residue in water is ideal?

A mineral content of between 50 and 500 mg/liter is considered low in minerals and is highly recommended for daily use. However, the health of such water also depends on which minerals and other substances it contains.

Water with veryfew minerals, less than 50 mg/liter is not recommendedfor daily use.
Water with more than500 mg/liter dry residue is too mineral-rich for daily use.

What are colloidal minerals in water?

Colloidal minerals are very small particles of organic or inorganic minerals in a liquid medium such as water. They are so small that they do not sink to the bottom or float on the surface. They have an electromagnetic charge. They are better absorbed by the body than organic and inorganic minerals, which consist of larger particles.

What are inorganic and organic minerals and trace elements? 

Inorganic minerals are minerals and trace elements that are present in the soil, for example rocks. For humans, these are difficult to absorb. Organic minerals and trace elements come from plants or animals. They are in a chelated (bound) form, which means that they are linked to a protein. They are easily absorbed by humans.

What is the body’s average absorption capacity of minerals?

Colloidal minerals: 70 to 90%
Inorganic minerals: 5 to 35%
Organic minerals; 40 to 60%
