Coca-Cola admits Dasani is really just 'purified' tap water
This article was published by Natural News and the article written by Ethan A. Huff.

As more and more people wake up to the dangers of fluoride, chlorine, pharmaceuticals, and the many other toxic compounds found in municipal water supplies, the market for bottled water has exploded. But in the process, some major food and beverage corporations have unwittingly begun peddling that very same tap water in bottles as "pure," a deceptive labeling term that is the subject of a new trade controversy in Europe.

According to a recent report by Occupy Monsanto, the Dasani water brand, which is owned by beverage giant Coca-Cola, is one such bottled water counterfeit, if you will, that contains purified tap water dressed in fancy-looking bottles. Like many other bottled water brands, Dasani is sold at a premium price, and many people perceive it to be superior to tap water, even though it actually is just tap water.

Even though the majority of the impurities have admittedly been removed from Dasani water, and minerals added back in, many people do not realize that the water contained in Dasani bottles is not actually from a natural spring. If you read closely the labels found on water bottles, it usually spells out the source where the water inside was derived. But this information is often overlooked by consumers who believe they are buying something superior.

What is a natural spring?

Look unless your countries/regions water quality is really shit tap water is the same quality as bottled water.... And thus a complete and utter rip off since it costs like 200 to 500x more.

Bottled water drills a hole in the ground to pump it up and tap water does the same (in the same water layers generally even).

Wow! You're just now waking up to this? I could write novels about the dangers of bottled water but I'll spare you the details.
Buy yourself an under-the-counter 5 stage reverse osmosis system for your drinking water. You can probably find one for $150-$200. It'll pay for itself in no time and will last at least 5 years, but I've seen some that'll last 15 years.

It doesn't say SPRING WATER on the bottle....it says PURIFIED WATER.

Is this supposed to be some big revelation???
...or just news for those who are illiterate and cannot read???

Re: Coca-Cola admits Dasani is really just 'purified' tap water
No offense, but I thought this was pretty common knowledge. They use reverse osmosis to purify it and state that on their website.

[link to www.dasani.com]

"In designing DASANI to be the best tasting water, we start with the local water supply, which is then filtered by reverse osmosis to remove impurities. The purified water is then enhanced with a special blend of minerals for the pure, crisp, fresh taste that’s delightfully DASANI."

My wife insists on buying water from those refill stations at the supermarket. I joke that they probably are connected to a hose in a sink in the back.

I've known about this for many years, I would consider it pedestrian knowledge.

It was only just published by Natural News and the article written by Ethan A. Huff.

Although the article seems to present it as new information, this thread is already proving its hardly ground-breaking.

This article does serve as good information to those who aren't already in-the-know.

Re: Coca-Cola admits Dasani is really just 'purified' tap water
When Coca-Cola produced Desani in the UK, the water came from a London water main. They filtered the water and added minerals back in. When tested it was found they added a carcinogen. Here is a clip from a UK national newspaper...

(Google Desani carcinogen for the full article)


Things get worse with Coke

Bottled tap water withdrawn after cancer scare


Felicity Lawrence, consumer affairs correspondent
The Guardia n, Saturday 20 March 2004 02.35 GMT

First, Coca-Cola's new brand of "pure" bottled water, Dasani, was revealed earlier this month to be tap water taken from the mains. Then it emerged that what the firm described as its "highly sophisticated purification process", based on Nasa spacecraft technology, was in fact reverse osmosis used in many modest domestic water purification units.

Yesterday, just when executives in charge of a £7m marketing push for the product must have felt it could get no worse, it did precisely that.

The entire UK supply of Dasani was pulled off the shelves because it has been contaminated with bromate, a cancer-causing chemical.

So now the full scale of Coke's PR disaster is clear. It goes something like this: take Thames Water from the tap in your factory in Sidcup, Kent; put it through a purification process, call it "pure" and give it a mark-up from 0.03p to 95p per half litre; in the process, add a batch of calcium chloride, containing bromide, for "taste profile"; then pump ozone through it, oxidising the bromide - which is not a problem - into bromate - which is. Finally, dispatch to the shops bottles of water containing up to twice the legal limit for bromate (10 micrograms per litre).

The Drinking Water Inspectorate confirmed yesterday it had checked the Thames water supplied to the factory and found it free of bromate. Because it is unsafe at high levels, standards for bromate in tap water are strictly monitored.

Bromide is a naturally occurring trace chemical which has a sedative effect. It is said to have been added by the British army to soldiers' tea during the second world war to dampen down their lust. But when it is oxidised into bromate it becomes "a pretty nasty carcinogen", according to David Drury, one of the principal inspectors for the DWI.

Re: Coca-Cola admits Dasani is really just 'purified' tap water
if it is processed by reverse osmosis, then it is not any longer tap water.

They have not lied or anything. such processed water no longer has chlorine and fluoride in it, and thus, is more healthy than the tap water it originally was!

Get my 5-stage filtered (RO, carbon, etc) water for 25 cents per gallon from dispenser outside Safeway. Water comes from a local deep well, high in nitrates, which are filtered out by RO. Use glass--not plastic--gallon jugs to carry.

By the way, plastic bottles leach chemicals into the water they hold, especially when they sit in the sun and get hot.

Re: Coca-Cola admits Dasani is really just 'purified' tap water
True, literate people knew long ago Dasini is tap water long ago. But I still see people scooping it off the shelves by the armful. These people ought to just by a good filtering system as suggested above.
"Spring water" if it is truely spring water at least isnt filtered city tap water which DOESNT come from an underground source but is recycled tap water sometimes flushed through fifty toilets till it comes to your tap. It is NOT clean...just think alone how old are the lines running through miles of lines to your home...never cleaned, sliding through possible mold and slime built up for decades, even centuries under ground. And the unspeakable chemicals "they" want to be able to feed into the I.V. bag the force into your home.
I would never feed my grandkids tap water. I encourage short showers and not soaking in it also. WHY did most cities pour cement down in city wells so you couldnt use them ever anymore? Who is behind the advertising campaign to get rid of the bottles holding the good spring water.>? If the plastic bottles are so bad, why not ban 7-up and coca cola, etc, why JUST water!!
