Potassium bicarbonate is an alkaline mineral. The FDA recognizes potassium bicarbonate as a safe substance in bottled water when used appropriately. There are no adverse side effects of this substance in bottled water.

Why is Potassium Bicarbonate Added to Bottled Water?

Bottled water is a popular choice for people who want clean and safe drinking water. However, the purification process used by bottled water companies can also remove essential minerals that give water its natural taste and health benefits. This is why potassium bicarbonate is often added back to filtered water to improve its taste.

However, because not all bottled water companies add these essential minerals back to their water, it is recommended to remineralize your water. Even if they do add it, it won't do any harm, and it might prove beneficial. This is where Mayu Essential Mineral Drops and Mayu Swirl carafe come in. They'll make sure both that your water tastes good and that it's as healthy as it can be.

Ensure Every Glass You Drink is Delicious

Storing your enhanced water in the right container is just as important as the water itself. The Mayu Glass Water Bottle is an excellent choice because it is made from glass, which does not contaminate your water or leave any unpleasant flavors.

Glass is a durable material that can be reused over and over again without losing its integrity, making it a more sustainable and environmentally friendly option compared to single-use plastic bottles. With the Mayu Glass Water Bottle, you can ensure that your enhanced water stays fresh, pure, and free of any unwanted flavors or toxins.
