KOMIN Natural Mineral Water – Water Quality Report

KOMIN is a premier brand of natural mineral water that conforms to international health standards for drinking water.

The bottling source

KOMIN Natural Mineral Water is bottled at source from a sacred aquifer located at the foothills of majestic Sahyadri Mountains. Because of its location in an eco-system away from human or external intervention, this sacred aquifer is blessed with a bounty of one of world’s pristine natural mineral water.

How KOMIN is bottled...

KOMIN is bottled at source using internationally acclaimed sealed delivery system free from human or external intervention. Immaculately pure & balanced with naturally-dissolved minerals, KOMIN reaches you just the way nature created it to be without being subject to any chemical treatment whatsoever.

Source water for the sacred aquifer

Sahyadri is a perennial source of monsoon rains. The sacred aquifer from which KOMIN is bottled at source is fed with mineral-rich water derived from tides of monsoon rains seeping through porous lava mantle.

Corporate Quality Assurance

KOMIN undergoes continually test for organic, inorganic chemicals and microbial contaminants that are regulated by international authority for safety of drinking water. Government recognized food laboratories test and confirm our corporate quality assurance. The following Water Quality Report (updated on our website from time to time) is proof of KOMIN’s suitability as a premier natural mineral water for health & life-styles.

Statements Desirable for Bottled Natural Mineral Water

Statement of Quality:

The quality standards of bottled water provide the maximum legal limits for a variety of substances that are allowed in bottled water, along with their monitoring requirements. The substances include microbiological contaminants, pesticides, inorganic contaminants, organic contaminants, radiological contaminants, and others. The standards have been established by competent authorities for safety of public drinking water

Source Water:

The sources of bottled natural mineral water may include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and wells. Because water is naturally prone to traverse and infiltrate through round, it is expected to absorb naturally occurring substances as well as substances that are by-products of human and animal activity. Substances that may be present in the source water include any of the following: Inorganic substances, Pesticides and herbicides, Organic substances, Microbial organisms, and Substances with Radioactive Properties.

Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL):

MCL is the maximum level of a contaminant allowed in public drinking water.

Promotion of Public Health (PPH):

It is the objective that ensures the level of contaminant in drinking water is below the threshold at which there is no known or expected risk to health.

Contaminants in Water:

Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that water poses a health risk.

In order to ensure that bottled natural mineral water is safe to drink, the authorities on public prescribe regulations limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by bottle water companies. KOMIN has thoroughly been tested in accordance with international standards for safety of drinking natural mineral water.
