When it comes to Dasani bottled water, the manufacturer claims 4 ingredients: tap water, salt, potassium chloride, and magnesium sulfate. According to Dasani, the ingredients are just meant to add taste.

But taste is not the only thing that these ingredients change!

Let’s evaluate what these ingredients do.

Tap Water

Guess who owns Dasani? It’s Coca-Cola. They use tap water, and we don’t have any issue with it. There’s difference between the tap water and spring water taste no doubt. Even when we drink tap water it can be seen as an environmentally conscious choice. But why in the world would anyone bottle tap water. Doesn’t it simply go against reason?

If you want to drink tap water, you should simply drink it from the tap!

Magnesium Sulfate

Most of us know Epsom salt. Magnesium sulfate is the same thing. It is also known as bath salt. What would you say if there is “drying agent” in a beverage that you want to drink to quench your thirst? That’s exactly what Coca-Cola has done in this case. Anhydrous magnesium sulfate is nothing else but a drying agent. So if you get a weird dry mouth sensation after drinking Dasani water, don’t be surprised.

So there is likely a hidden agenda here for Coca-Cola. They want you to buy another bottle, either of Dasani water or some soft drink. This is because once you drink one bottle of this water, you will have some magnesium sulfate on your tongue. So you will still keep feeling thirsty.

After all the marketing guys at Coca-Cola are geniuses!

Magnesium sulfate also has many other affects on our body, which is why it has a place in medicine. You would be surprised to know that one of its effects is to delay labor through inhibition of uterine contractions in pregnant women. And it has in fact been used for this purpose. Studies have linked high dosage of magnesium sulfate with birth defects, and this forced many to stop this practice.

The FDA made a recommendation that magnesium sulfate get classified as Category D Teratogen after studies indicated that in utero exposure to higher dosage of this substance lead to birth defects (exposure of 5 to 7 days). It is highly likely that Coca-Cola doesn’t want all those pregnant women who drink Dasani water to ever know who this ingredient, when taken in high dosage, can affect their unborn baby.

But what are these effects of babies when there’s exposure to high dosage of intravenous magnesium sulfate?

These studies found that within 5 to 7 days, the babies who were exposed suffered from bone structure changes. Their bones became weaker. This is why magnesium sulfate has received a listing of known teratogen (Pregnancy Category D) by FDA, with positive findings of human fetal risk.

And Dasani water too lists an ingredient to be a known teratogen. Like any other chemical, it is the dosage of it that turns it into a poison. But you should also avoid any water that has any additives.

More information about it can be found with FDA.

But that is not all. Magnesium sulfate has a bitter taste, but Coca-Cola still likes to add it to its water that already has a foul taste!

Potassium Chloride

So Dasani water also has this ingredient. Can you guess where this compound is usually used?

It is used for these 3 purposes and after you know about them, you won’t want to drink the bottled water again:

  • It is used as a fertilizer
  • It is used in lethal injections for stopping heart
  • It is sometimes also used in late trimester abortions for stopping heart of the fetus

If that doesn’t intrigue you, what will?

Also potassium chloride has a chemical-like, metallic aftertaste. It has a slightly bitter and unsalty flavor. So the question is how does Coca-Cola think that it could help in improving the taste of its Dasani water?

If the lethal injection thing about potassium chloride is ringing a bell in your mind, you should be reading the article “Can Ingredients In Dasani Bottled Water Kill You?” by Stephen Fox. It is posted at The Water Filter Lady’s Blog.

Potassium chloride not only causes birth defects, there are some side effects too to it. This includes:

  • Cardiac arrhythmias
  • Bowel lesions
  • Muscle weakness
  • gastrointestinal disruptions
  • Diarrhea
  • Heartburn
  • Abdominal pain
  • GI tract bleeding
  • Dyspepsia
  • Nausea
  • Hypersensitivity
  • Nervous system damage

Some may argue that both magnesium and potassium when supplied to our body from natural foods are good for our health. But in their chemical compound form, these substances can work differently compared  to their natural forms. This is the reason you may never overdose the compound if you eat bananas, but it is so easy to overdose if you take potassium chloride.

If you can get the point, you will also be able to see a good reason behind why it is so difficult for people to lose weight and maintain health when they are taking processed foods.

So how much potassium chloride does Coca-Cola add to its Dasani bottled water?

They don’t want you to know. So would you leave it to these companies to decide whether to overdose you or not?


Table salt is something that you may not have to worry about. It can hardly be harmful in any way. But health problems can arise when sodium is added in unknown amounts. If you drink just a bottle of Dasani water, you may not have to worry about the amount of salt. But if you drink 6-7 of them in a day, you should be concerned.

But potassium chloride and magnesium sulfate are the bigger things to be concerned about.
