Why does the label read “Natural Mineral Water”?

1. January 2014

“Natural Mineral Water “ is a quality statement....

Only those mineral waters which fulfill the stringent requirements of the German Mineral Water and Table Water Regulation (MTVO) may call themselves “Natural Mineral Water”. Mineral water is the only food product in Germany which has official approval. To achieve this approval more than 200 tests are necessary, it must be bottled at source and as a natural product it may not be changed – with one exception: iron and sulphur may be removed to improve taste and appearance.


Steinsieker, The Calcium Mineral Water, is premium quality mineral water –

officially approved.
