Bottled Spring Water With Dinner…

One recent evening I enjoyed a bottle of Acqua Panna bottled spring water with dinner at a local restaurant.  The taste was light and sweet and I made a bet with my dinner companion that the total dissolved solids (tds) content was less than 200.  The fact that the water is bottled in glass added to my delight.

A review of the company’s water quality report when I got home indicates a tds of 140.  Acqua Panna is really delicious and reminded me how bottled water can be paired with food in a way that adds dimension to a meal.  The light sweet taste went well with our salads.  One would then pair water with higher tds, such as a sparkling mineral water, with the heavier main course.

I point this out in part because I enjoyed Acqua Panna so much but also so you might realize how bottled water can be used in the same way that a good wine is used to augment a meal.  I generally only drink bottled spring water when traveling. To learn more about my recommendations, you may read ‘Which Bottled Water Is the Best?’

Acqua Panna bottled spring water is imported all the way from Italy, as are many of the heavier mineral waters, and for that reason I would not promote its use for daily drinking water.  For that, I always urge people to review their local water report and then purchase the best water filter to make the water delivered to your home healthy for your family.
