The label on the mineral water bottle lists all of the important information on the product. The regulations set by the mineral and table water ordinance require this information on the label.
The following counts as relevant information: Market designation ("natural mineral water"), the name of the source or the source's place of origin, information on the official analysis, the sell by date, the fill capacity and the company name. It is mandatory for the label to denote the typical elements contained in mineral water, showing excerpts from the approval analysis. Listing of the treatment that the water was subjected to (e.g. de-ironing, de-sulfurization) is optional.
It is primarily the nutritional elements contained in the water that are relevant for labeling. These are the elements that are displayed besides others that are contained in certain amounts. Not all of the product information can be declared on the bottle's label. This would far exceed the space provided by the available label.
