Consumer Voice - - The Surveillance Series/ Fortified Water -

Our body needs cal­cium to build and main­tain strong bones. Our heart, mus­cles and nerves also need cal­cium to func­tion prop­erly. As per Di­etary Guide­lines for In­di­ans, 2011, by Na­tional In­sti­tute of Nu­tri­tion, the daily re­quire­ment of cal­cium for both man and woman is 600 mg. Only Wild Vi­ta­min Drink claimed cal­cium in its drink. Cal­cium con­tent was found to be 26.19 mg/100 ml as against their la­bel claim of 16.9 mg/100 ml.
