What is the difference between natural mineral water and spring water? 

Both are groundwater, originally clean chemically and microbiologically. Although mineral water is characterized by a stable mineral composition and properties of physiological significance. That is, those that have a beneficial effect on human health. In addition, natural mineral water is considered a mineral regardless of the degree of mineralization. Spring water, on the other hand, does not differ in its properties and mineral composition from water intended for human consumption, specified in the provisions on collective water supply. The European Union only keeps a record of mineral waters but does not keep a record of spring waters.
