Bottled and Packaged Water, Volume Four in The Science of Beverages series, offers great perspectives on current trends in drinking water research, quality control techniques, packaging strategies, and current concerns in the field, thus revealing the most novel standards in the industry. As consumer demand for bottled and packaged water has increased, the need for scientists and researchers to understand how to analyze water quality, safety, and control are essential. This all-encompassing resource for research and development in this flourishing field covers everything from sensory and chemical composition, to materials and manufacturing.

Key Features

  • Presents a detailed analysis and sensory characteristics of water to foster research and innovation
  • Provides the latest technological advancements and microbiological characterization methods in the field
  • Includes regulatory tools for beverage packaging to help industry personnel maintain compliance


Food scientists, food chemists, food microbiologists, food engineers in the beverages sector (R&D, Gov. and academia). Food industry quality control managers, analysts working in the private and public sector dealing with water analysis and water safety-control and of course students under- and post-graduate students and finally consumers and non-government organisations interested in safety of water consumers
