Fluoride for bottled water?

Monday, 03 April, 2006


The Australian beverages industry has lodged an application seeking permission to voluntarily add a maximum of 1.5 mg/L of fluoride to packaged waters. The application to Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ) was lodged by the Australian Beverages Council in conjunction with the Australasian Bottled Water Institute.

Fluoride is not currently a permitted additive in packaged water and, even where naturally present, is usually at such low levels that its presence cannot be claimed.

The application is to enable bottlers to develop and market new fluoridated water brands.
