Phosphates are used for JUL mineral dosing. These are harmless to health, tasteless and permitted according to international drinking water standards. For the human organism, phosphates are vital substances, that are needed for various body functions. They are contained in large quantities in many foods, for example in bread, sausages, processed cheese, fish, eggs or milk.
Moreover, the amount of phosphate in properly treated drinking water is so small that one litre of drinking water contains a maximum of 5 mg of phosphate – a bar of chocolate contains around 90 mg. The daily intake of phosphate from treated drinking water accounts for only a very small part of the human daily phosphate intake of approx. 6,000 mg and is, therefore, negligible.
