ME Baby Water is a natural mineral water which flows at a temperature of 10 ° C.
Its flavour is typically soft. Its TDS (total dissolved solids) is equal to 187 mg /L, therefore it is included in the classification of natural low mineral waters.
Furthermore, its slightly alkaline pH of 7.84, gives it particular digestibility. The chemical component characterised by the presence of ions such as Ca, HCO3, Mg, Na and K are all fundamental elements for our health. Oligomineral waters with these chemical characteristics are precious because they guarantee a particular digestive function associated with a mild diuretic action. Its lightness and its physical characteristics make it a water particularly suitable for its use for the dilution of milk powder and for the dilution of preparations for weaning.
In the specific case of bottle feeding, low mineral water with a fixed residue between 150 mg/L and 200 mg/L is recommended, a value that responds to their nutritional needs also taking into account the different milk powder formulation. This type of water best integrates the contribution of minerals deriving from infant formula or from the weaning dietary regime in order to cover the nutritional needs of the child. Studies show that an excessive concentration of minerals, in particular sodium, potassium and chlorine, risk overloading the newborn’s kidneys.
