Well-being for all

A water 100% pure, which has no contraindications or consumption limit thanks to its low concentration of fluorides.

The right balance of mineral salts that characterise the water of Fonte Cottorella render it neither lacking the beneficial elements, nor so overloaded that it creates inconvenience.    Its natural virtues have remained unchanged over the centuries, the health properties appreciated by the ancient Romans are the very same ones that distinguish its purity and benefits today.

100% Italian passion

For 20 years, the staff of Antiche Fonti di Cottorella SpA have been working in synergy with the local area to ensure that the purity of the water not only remains a naturalistic resource but a product of value, which is promoted and distributed.

The Business

Healthy well-being

Water is one of the most commonly used daily elements to quench thirst and used to prepare food and drinks. Aiming to protect consumer health and well-being, the water of Fonte Cottorella shows all its properties on the label, even those not required by law, so consumers can make a conscious choice.

Virtuous by nature

The water of Fonte Cottorella is considered one of the best oligomineral waters on the market.
Characterised by its purity and lightness, absence of pollutants and heavy metals, the right amount of calcium and balanced content of mineral salts, it is suitable for daily consumption by any age group, from early infancy to the later years.

FOR INFANCY It is particularly suitable for the addition to and preparation of infant formula or baby food and for consumption during early infancy. The Ministry of Health has authorised Fonte Cottorella to show on its label as follows: “Breastfeeding is preferred, though in cases where this is not possible, this mineral water can be used for the preparation of infant formula.”

FOR ATHLETES it guarantees the right hydration, an immediate absorption of mineral salts and neutralisation of lactic acid.

OR HYDROPONIC WATER TREATMENTS being slightly alkaline, it’s ideal for thermal treatments based on the consumption of mineral water or mineral water based drinks.

KNOWING HOW TO READ THE LABEL
To make a conscious choice

  • Nitrates and nitrites are one of the most important parameters to consider when evaluating water as they signal the presence of pollutants. The lower the nitrate levels, the higher the quality of the water. Today, the indication of nitrate levels is not obligatory on labels. The WHO indicates a safe value of 5 mg/l, the nitrate levels in the water of Fonte Cottorella is 1,80 mg/l.
  • Undesired heavy metals, such as arsenic and nickel, can be found dissolved in water. Fonte Cotterella notes a complete absence of these elements in its water.
  • Fixed residue indicates the content of mineral salts dissolved in the water. Fonte Cotterella has a low fixed residue equal to 296.4 mg/l, its contribution of mineral salts hydrates the body without weighing it down.
  • Fluorides or the percentage of fluorides present in the water, an element that must be consumed in small doses. Mineral waters with an amount of fluoride greater than 1.5mg/l, must specify on their labels that daily consumption of their water, for children under seven, is not recommended. The water of Fonte Cotterella has 0,07 mg/l.
  • PH indicates the acidity level of the water, the level must be between 6.5 and 8. Fonte Cottorella prides itself at 7,29, which is slightly alkaline.
  • Sodium is a common salt, it is good to drink water with a low sodium content but the impact of it is minimal. The limit value for water is 20 mg/l, that of Fonte Cottorella is 6,17 mg/l.
