As with other fresh water supplies (e.g., spring water, lake water, river water), bottled waters have low levels of fluoride. Fresh surface water contains an average of just 0.05 ppm. To put this in perspective, artificially fluoridated water (using industrial-grade fluoride chemicals) contains 0.7 to 1.2 ppm fluoride, which is 14 to 24 times more than the average natural level.

The following are the recorded fluoride levels in several popular bottled water brands sold in the United States. If the bottled water brand that you purchase is not included on this list, you can find out the fluoride level by calling the company, as this is information they should have readily available.
