These Are All The Sparkling Water Brands Nutritionists Actually Drink

You'd be surprised at how many brands have icky additives. What's better than popping the tab or lid on a sparkling water and enjoying that first ice cold, refreshing sip? The bubbles, the fizz and that effervescent pop is pure perfection—so we're perpetually on the hunt for the best sparkling water brands. With all those fizzy options available (sparkling water is expected to be a $67.6 billion industry by 2023), you might be wondering: What exactly is the difference between sparkling water and seltzer, and are they really healthy? The simple answer is this: seltzer and sparkling water are both carbonated water. However, seltzer is artificially carbonated using carbon dioxide and sparkling water is naturally carbonated or lightly artificially carbonated, says SaVanna Shoemaker, MS, RDN, LD. “Generally, I think sparkling water is a better choice because it's closer to nature - but an unsweetened or lightly flavored seltzer is still a better choice than a sugary soda.” Peep a few of the best sparkling water brands, below: And though sparkling water may seem like an across-the-board healthy option, not all brands are created equal. To make sure your fizzy drink is as good-for-you as can be, choose a brand that is low in sodium and contains no added sugars, artificial flavors, or artificial sweeteners, says dietitian Elizabeth Shaw, RDN, CPT. (A little natural sweetness from real fruit juice is a-okay, though.) Though many sparkling waters come canned these days, if you choose an option in a plastic bottle, just double check that it’s BPA-free, Shaw says. Keep your bubbly sips simple by opting for one of the following 15 fizzy water brands—all recommended by dietitians, happy customers, and Women's Health editors.
