Filtered slowly for 5,000 years through layers of lava rock, Icelandic Glacial™ possesses a highly desirable and uncommonly high pH of 8.4, making it naturally alkaline.
Icelandic Glacial™ is sourced from the legendary Ölfus Spring in Iceland, one of the world’s most pristine ecosystems. It possesses a naturally low mineral content (TDS of 62 ppm) that does not crowd the palate with heavy metals, minerals or silica. A water so pure, nothing is added or taken away.
Icelandic Glacial™ was the world’s first bottled water to be certified as CarbonNeutral® for both product and operation. Icelandic Glacial takes immense pride in running a completely sustainable operation fueled entirely by geothermal and hydroelectric power. At 7,688 sq. ft., the world class facility is one of the world's greenest and cleanest. In a commitment to reach a target of net-zero greenhouse gas emissions, Icelandic Glacial™ measures and reduces emissions through a combination of internal reductions and environmental instruments on an ongoing basis. To offset any remaining emissions, Icelandic Glacial™ invests in verified renewable energy, forestry and resource conservation projects around the world. Our efforts have been rewarded with international recognition, most notably winning the 2007 Bottled Water World Design Awards for Best Sustainability Initiative.
Testing is continually conducted to ensure Icelandic Glacial™ Water meets top food safety and quality standards. Our facilities and products are fully accredited by the NSF and always meet or exceed U.S.A. Food & Drug Administration and World Health Organization requirements. Both the Ölfus Spring source and our facility are also regularly inspected by the Icelandic Public Health Authority, which carries out stringent tests to ensure the facility is operating in compliance with WHO standards. In addition to governmental requirements, Icelandic Glacial™ carries out extensive daily testing with its own in-house laboratory.
