Why Aussie Gold Spring Water?
Why drink BOTTLED WATER?
Water is essential to the human body. While the body can last up to six weeks without food, it can only last a few days without water. Water serves many functions in the human body, including blood circulation, regulating body temperature, protecting and cushioning vital organs, removing waste, and converting food into energy. It is critical to ensure that you drink enough water so your body functions properly.
Why AUSSIE GOLD SPRING WATER?
Unlike surface water that is subject to pollution from the ground and air – and requires extensive treatment and chlorination to make it potable, Aussie Gold Natural Spring Water filters through volcanic rock over a long period, adding vital, natural minerals that give Aussie Gold Natural Spring Water its unique and refreshing taste. The natural spring water collects in an ancient artesian aquifer, deep within two layers of volcanic rock, where it is protected from external elements. It is the natural way for water – untouched.
Is bottled water different to TAP WATER?
YES, bottled water is different in many ways. A major difference is the source. Most bottled water such as spring water, comes from protected underground sources, whereas most municipal tap water comes from surface water (dams, lakes, rivers) which is often subject to contamination and pollution. Another difference is the method of distribution. Bottled water is produced under sanitary conditions in a food plant, packaged in clean, sealed containers. Tap water is distributed via many kilometres of often old, unsanitary piping systems, which can contain lead, pathogenic bacteria, and other impurities. Finally there’s TASTE! Bottled water does not contain chlorine (or its by-products such as trihalomethanes), aluminium, lead, or other chemicals, unpleasant tastes, and odours associated with tap water. Bottled water tastes crisp, clean and refreshing to drink.
What is HYDRATION?
Hydration is the replacement of body fluids lost through sweating, exhalation, and excretion which your body does every day. Adequate hydration is critical in maintaining good health. Here are some of the reasons why water is so important for correct hydration:
- Human blood is 95% water; bones are 22% water; and 75% of the human brain is water.
- Water carries nutrients and oxygen and is essential for the functioning of all the body’s living cells.
- Water regulates body temperature through sweating
- Water is used by the body to flush out impurities
How much SHOULD I DRINK?
The answer depends on your body weight, and daily activity level. The minimum health and nutrition professionals recommend is drinking 2 litres of water per day, but more for those with active lifestyles.
How do I know my bottled water is SAFE?
Bottled water which conforms to the Australian New Zealand Food Authority (ANZFA) Food Standards Code is safe to drink. Consumers who require added quality assurance should select bottled water produced by an accredited bottler like Aussie Gold Natural Spring Water.
What does HACCP ACCREDITATION mean?
HACCP certification is an international standard defining the requirements for effective control of food safety. It is built around seven principles: Conduct Hazard Analysis of biological, chemical or physical food hazards. Determine critical control points.
Aussie Gold Natural Spring Water has QUASI as our independent and internationally recognised third-party auditor for approved Bottled Water plants. The purpose of QUASI audits are to ensure that Aussie Gold’s bottling plant quality standards are in compliance with the requirements of the HACCP (Hazards Analysis & Critical Control Point) standard.
Aussie Gold submits the full records of our bottled water source and product water test results to the appointed QUASI auditor. Aussie Gold fully documents and verifies all procedures and processes. In some instances, Aussie Gold’s HACCP standards are more stringent than the FSANZ regulations currently in place for bottled water.
