Is Distilled Water Organic or Inorganic? Is it good for Your Organic Lifestyle?

Is Distilled Water Organic or Inorganic?

Chemically speaking distilled water is pure H2O and is made up of two hydrogen molecules and one oxygen molecule. For something to scientifically be organic it must be alive and therefore contain carbon. In fact the U.S. Department of Agriculture excludes water and salt (no carbon) from being classified as "organic". By definition Distilled Water is inorganic because it does not contain "carbon". So distilled water will never be able to have an official USDA Organic label placed on it, but Durastill Distilled Water gives you all of the health benefits you seek in organic products.

What are the health benefits of Durastill Distilled Water from an "Organic Lifestyle Point-of-View"?

I believe, "You are what you eat and You are what you drink". The "essence of a product being Organic" is that you want all of the harmful chemicals, impurities, pollutants, toxins, hormones, drugs and anything else that is bad for your body. You also don't want genetically modified products that have been manipulated in a laboratory. You want products that give your body the maximum nutrition and health benefits just the way nature intended!

Durastill Water Distillers create 99.9% pure water by boiling water into steam and then condensing that steam back into water. This mimics Mother Nature's the hydrological cycle. Where the sun heats up bodies of water and evaporates the water. The water vapor then condenses into clouds and turns into rainwater. Using a Durastill Water Distiller to make 99.9% pure distilled water is just a human-controlled version of Mother Nature's hydrological cycle! For a complete list of everything a Durastill Water Distiller removes from your water click here.

What about all of these trendy new products that claim to be "Organic Water"?

This Huffington Post NEWS report states: "Organic Water: A New Wave of Marketing - According to the USDA’s labeling process for organic products, water and salt are not included as an ingredient that must be labeled organic.

But a trendy new company called Asarasi is taking advantage of a loophole. The brand is selling the first USDA organic-certified water, according to a report from Food Navigator.

Because Asarasi’s water is filtered through a living thing ― a maple tree ― it appears to pass the USDA’s certification test.

Asarasi’s tagline encourages customers to “rethink your drink,” in the hopes that you’ll try this tree-filtered water. The water, which comes from sugar maple trees, is leftover from the maple syrup making process, though it doesn’t contain any sugar." 

So who wants to drink tree-filtered water that technically has a USDA organic sticker on it? I don't like loopholes or companies that exploit these loopholes to make products to manipulate people.

There are other "organic water" products that contain "organic coconut water" or other food ingredients and then they claim they are organic. But there is no such thing as organic water. 

What is the actual definition of USDA Organic?

According to usda.gov here is the actual definition that explains what the USDA organic label actually means:

USDA Organic Seal

"Amidst nutrition facts, ingredients lists, and dietary claims on food packages, “organic” might appear as one more piece of information to decipher when shopping for foods. So understanding what “organic” really means can help shoppers make informed choices during their next visit to the store or farmers’ market.

USDA certified organic foods are grown and processed according to federal guidelines addressing, among many factors, soil quality, animal raising practices, pest and weed control, and use of additives. Organic producers rely on natural substances and physical, mechanical, or biologically based farming methods to the fullest extent possible.

Produce can be called organic if it’s certified to have grown on soil that had no prohibited substances applied for three years prior to harvest. Prohibited substances include most synthetic fertilizers and pesticides. In instances when a grower has to use a synthetic substance to achieve a specific purpose, the substance must first be approved according to criteria that examine its effects on human health and the environment.

As for organic meat, regulations require that animals are raised in living conditions accommodating their natural behaviors (like the ability to graze on pasture), fed 100% organic feed and forage, and not administered antibiotics or hormones.

When it comes to processed, multi-ingredient foods, the USDA organic standards specify additional considerations. Regulations prohibit organically processed foods from containing artificial preservatives, colors, or flavors and require that their ingredients are organic, with some minor exceptions. For example, processed organic foods may contain some approved non-agricultural ingredients, like enzymes in yogurt, pectin in fruit jams, or baking soda in baked goods.

When packaged products indicate they are “made with organic [specific ingredient or food group],” this means they contain at least 70% organically produced ingredients. The remaining non-organic ingredients are produced without using prohibited practices (genetic engineering, for example) but can include substances that would not otherwise be allowed in 100% organic products. “Made with organic” products will not bear the USDA organic seal, but, as with all other organic products, must still identify the USDA-accredited certifier. You can look for the identity of the certifier on a packaged product for verification that the organic product meets USDA’s organic standards. As with all organic foods, none of it is grown or handled using genetically modified organisms, which the organic standards expressly prohibit."

In summary the USDA Organic Label only includes products with "carbon" in them. Since water is H20 and since water is excluded from the USDA classification as "organic", then no water can honestly claim to be organic.
