Mineralisation

Mineralisierung

To remain healthy, our bodies need vitamins, minerals and trace elements, which it receives in our diets. As the name suggests, mineral waters like Valser contain precisely these kinds of substances. Valser is also free of unwanted nitrates due to its uniquely protected source at the furthest point of Vals Valley, far from the motorways, industrial plants and intensive agriculture.

Mineral waters are defined by their characteristic mineral constituents. They depend on the structure of the regional rock strata and on the dwell of the water in their depths. Mineral waters are assigned to several categories that reflect the quantity of minerals they contain:

Valser Classic/Naturelle from St. Peter’s spring: highly mineralised

In most cases the high mineralisation of waters with more than 1,500 mg/l will leave its mark on the taste, and this is particularly true of still variants. Valser Classic and Naturelle from St. Peter’s spring belong to this category. But not only are Valser Classic/Naturelle highly mineralised, they also exhibit a singularly beneficial mineral composition: rich in valuable calcium and magnesium, they nevertheless contain practically no sodium (a main constituent in common salt), making Valser an ideal choice for low-sodium diets.

Valser Silence from St. Paul’s spring: low mineral content

Waters with a low mineral content (less than 500 mg/l) tend to have a neutral taste. The new Valser Silence from St. Paul’s spring belongs in this category. What’s more, it is low in sodium and free of nitrate and therefore a perfect choice for natural, low-salt diets. Combined with the reduced mineral content, especially sulfate, these properties explicitly make Valser Silence a suitable choice for the preparation of infant formula.
