What does zero nitrate means?
Wattwiller, a water free of any nitrate.
Nitrates are compounds of nitrogen and oxygen that plants need in order to grow. In natural conditions, without human influence, there is a balance between the use of nitrogen in the air by living micro-organisms and its return to the atmosphere.
Population growth, development of intensive agriculture and industry have considerably modified the natural nitrogen cycle.
French legislation specifies the maximum authorized concentration for nitrates in water (50mg/l), in agreement with the relevant European directive and in line with the World Health Organization’s 1994 recommendations.
The mineral water of Wattwiller is pure, free of any nitrate. Wattwiller can be consumed on a daily basis by babies as well as any member of the family.
