Abstract
Ramlösa water has from early in the previous century been produced and bottled. Compared to today, the initial production was modest and it taken some time before sales expanded. Today, 90 million liters of packed water per year is produced and the water reaches markets far beyond Sweden's boundaries. The natural mineral water which Carlsberg Sweden Corp. produces at their plant in Helsingborg is composed of two products: Ramlösa Original and Ramlösa Stilla. These are taken from different water catchments and aquifers and their chemical composition therefore diverges. The legislation concerning production of natural mineral water is extensive. There are special rules for the natural water, for processing, marketing and for sales... (More)
Ramlösa water has from early in the previous century been produced and bottled. Compared to today, the initial production was modest and it taken some time before sales expanded. Today, 90 million liters of packed water per year is produced and the water reaches markets far beyond Sweden's boundaries. The natural mineral water which Carlsberg Sweden Corp. produces at their plant in Helsingborg is composed of two products: Ramlösa Original and Ramlösa Stilla. These are taken from different water catchments and aquifers and their chemical composition therefore diverges. The legislation concerning production of natural mineral water is extensive. There are special rules for the natural water, for processing, marketing and for sales management. The legislation states that the mineral substances may not vary between the natural water and product. The purpose of this study is therefore to investigate how the characteristic components in natural water change in the aquifer as well as during production. The water's chemical composition is above all affected by the geological features that presents in the area. Of the 11 in Sweden validated natural waters for extraction of natural mineral water lies three in Helsingborg. Sample-taking and analyzes from the process and from the wells, shows that most variations are due to the variations in the wells. However, changes in concentration of calcium and potassium can be traced to the process flow. (Less)
