What is BPA and is it in Niagara’s bottles?
BPA (Bisphenol –A) is a chemical building block that is used primarily to make polycarbonate plastic and epoxy resins. Since Niagara manufactures its own bottles and caps, we have total control of the materials. Niagara does not use BPA in any of its products.
All of our bottles are produced using PET (polyethylene terephthalate) plastic and High-Density polyethylene (HDPE) caps. These are food-grade plastics that are approved by the US FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) for their use in many types of food containers.
Is there fluoride in the water?
Fluoride is often added to municipal water supplies, but it is generally not added to bottled water products. Spring water may contain natural fluoride levels. For purified products from Niagara, any fluoride in the source water is removed in the purification process.
How should I store my water?
The International Bottled Water Association (IBWA) advises consumers to store bottled water at room temperature or cooler, out of direct sunlight, and away from solvents and chemicals such as gasoline, paint thinners, household cleaners and dry cleaning chemicals.
Why are minerals added to water?
For purified drinking water with minerals very small amounts of high quality grade minerals are added. The sodium level in such water is always less than 1 milligram per 8 ounce serving. This is done strictly for taste and has no nutritional value.
Is it safe to refill the bottles or freeze them?
Our bottles are filled under sanitary conditions and are disinfected during the production process. Freezing the bottle is harmless to the product, however as water freezes it expands and will distort the shape of the bottle causing instability. It may potentially expand through to the cap and break the seal.
Is the water tested?
Our on-site testing laboratories are equipped with state-of-the-art testing machinery and staffed with degreed, experienced personnel. Comparative analyses are performed daily on products in accordance with State and Federal regulatory standards. We test for organic chemicals and inorganic chemicals as regulated by the FDA.
What is reverse osmosis?
Reverse osmosis is a process that removes nearly all of the salts or minerals in the source water. Reverse osmosis works by forcing water through a semi-permeable membrane at high pressure and is a very effective method for purification.
What is micron filtration?
Micron filtration removes sediment and suspended particles. These filters are designed to remove particles as small as 0.2 micron in diameter.
