This book helps you use current production capacity in your brewery operation to add a new product line. It provides a comprehensive overview of the science and technology of bottled water and is a definitive hands-on reference for a comprehensive bottled water production program.

The bottling of water might seem to the uninitiated to be a simple and risk-free process. In practice, however, because water is so sensitive to chemical, physical and microbiological contamination, it is one of the more difficult products to package to a consistently high standard. The bottled waters industry continues to be a substantial and valuable sector of the global beverage market. Recent years have seen new processing innovations, a continuing debate around environmental issues, and the development of new products including functional and flavored waters.

The fully revised third edition of this unique and comprehensive overview of the science and technology of the bottled waters industry contains brand new chapters which address these new developments. As well as an updated introductory chapter reviewing the market, the degree to which the global legislative and regulatory picture has changed is examined, and new and increasingly-used quality standards are assessed.

The book provides a definitive source of reference for all those involved in bottled water production: producers, beverage technologists, packaging technologists, analytical chemists, microbiologists and health and safety personnel.
