Stanceni natural carbonated mineral water was awarded the Gold Award at the World Selection 2019 International Competition, organized by Monde Selection Belgium. Stanceni carbonated mineral water is rich in minerals, especially sodium, calcium and magnesium, providing optimal moisture and supporting the body’s smooth functioning.
The natural mineral water of Stânceni is bottled in a modern factory by the Romaqua Group. The Stânceni springs are located in the central part of Romania, in the Eastern Carpathians, protected area Caliman National Park, away from any source of pollution, volcanic rocks supplying water with a special mineral content.
The gold medal at World Selection 2019 is a confirmation of Romania’s outstanding resources in the field.
Romania owns over 60% of Europe’s mineral water resources and occupies the 5th place in the European Union in the production of natural mineral water.
Romania could become one of the significant players on the mineral water market worldwide, having the potential to provide the necessary mineral water for the European countries for a period of 25 years!
The mineral water resources in our country are evidenced by significant flows and remarkable quality of springs. In Romania there are over 2000 mineral water springs, whose chemical diversity reflects the very complex geological conditions that have put their mark on their genesis. Most springs have carbonated mineral waters, whose origins are related to post-volcanic phenomena.
On the territory of Romania, numerous mineral water mining sites have been set up, among which Govora (one of the richest resorts in iodated and brominated waters in Europe, cited in the second in Europe, after Pechelepronne in Alsace), Perla Moldovei within the framework of the mineral water Slănic-Moldova, discovered since 1801, the quality of the mineraled waters covered in this deposit has been repeatedly confirmed in Paris, Vienna, or Frankfurt), Domogled-Herculane (“The sacred waters of Hercules” BC), Calimanesti-Caciulata or Borsec.
The mineral waters bottled in Romania can also be called gaseous waters because they contain large amounts of gas, especially carbon dioxide. Their cabogazous character is obtained by incorporating the carbon dioxide encountered in their underground circulation.
The mineral waters of food consumption – having also therapeutic properties – have a total mineralization below 6.0 g / l and are grouped in two categories. The mineral waters with mineralization not differing by more than 5 g / l belong to the first category: Borsec (5.6 g / l), Boholt (4.79 g / l), Sarul Dornei (4.78 g / l), Poiana Vinului g / l), Covasna (4.4 g / l). In the second category, with poorly mineralized waters and slightly different from each other, are: Poiana Cosnei (3.4 g / l), Buziasi (3.6 g / l), Sâncraieni (3.0 g / l).
