Basic water types

Mineral water

It contains minerals, microelements and other components that change the taste and have a therapeutic effect. It is extracted of one or more natural springs or artificial facilities. The initial purity and composition remain unchanged, while the deep underground origin ensures protection against contamination of water sources.

Spring water

It originates from underground water body which springs naturally on the ground surface. According to microbiological, physicochemical, chemical and radiological indicators it suitable for use and drinking in its natural state. SPRING WATER MIHALKOVO is of this type.

Table water

Does not meet the requirements for mineral and spring water, but meets those of the Water Quality for Drinking Purposes Ordinance. It is extracted from underground or surface source.

Artesian water

It is sourced from closed wells bounded by watertight layers. Additional facilities can be used for its extraction can be used to help the natural underground pressure. This water is considered to be naturally clean, but in most cases it has no special qualities.

Demineralized water

It has undergone treatment – distillation, deionization or reverse osmosis, as a result of which is purified of all minerals and other dissolved components.

Naturally carbonated mineral water

In its natural state contains carbon dioxide, the amount in bottled water, whether applied decanting, is the same as in the water source. NATURALLY CARBONATED WATER MIHALKOVO is of this type.

Additionally carbonated mineral water

It is additionally carbonated with carbon dioxide that originates from the same water source. Its quantity contained in bottled water, whether applied decanting, is the higher than in the water source.

Artificially carbonated mineral, spring and table water

It contains carbon dioxide which is artificially dissolved in the water and does not originate from the water source.

According to Assoc. Prof. Vladimirov, professor at the University of Food Technologies (UFT) - Plovdiv, low mineralized waters are suitable for everyday use, because they create fewer problems with their structure.

The most beneficial in this rotation is the spring water from the heart of the mountain, such as Mihalkovo. It has low salinity and sodium levels and is proven pure and natural.
