Odd question about thawed water.

I cant find the answer online. Probably because I dont know how to ask the question right.

What is the sediment that is present in the bottle after it is thawed?

What I mean is if I take a bottle of water, freeze it, then thaw it before I drink it there are white floaties present in the water that werent there before I froze it. (Or at least they werent visible)

Sounds weird but it happens to every bottle of water I freeze.

Anyone have an answer? It is boggling me.

Might be calcium.Over time calcium deposits attach to your water mains or pipes and harden.Every time you turn on the tap , some of this calcium breaks loose.Normally you wouldn't see them because before they settle you drink the water or use it in some other way,Make sure your facet has a screen on it,that might eliminate some of that.With that said if you do have a screen ,clean it often.

Can't answer about store bought stuff,I guess it depends on how they filter it.As far as tap,I have taken many cast iron and plastic mains apart.Depending on how old they are, they can be lined in calcium.Also depends on water source .Well ,river ,lake. Well water normally has the most.Most municipalities treat and filter their water ,but it does little for calcium.

hey im not sure if anyone has herd of this yet but i herd on the news not too long ago that putting plastic in your freezer isnt recommended anymore b/c they have found a chemical in plastics that when frozen then thawed out and digested it can cause cancer, ive started using a metal cantine to freeze water now, not sure how true it is but it was on the news so i took it as a handy peice of info

I don't see why not, I don't see freezing the bottle expelling the particles from the bottle.

its something in your water to be sure.....I bet if you boil that same water off you will find rings of residue in your pot, its prolly a mineral of some kind..all water has some degree of minerals in it exccept truly purified water from a demineralization filtering system like the kind used for water treatment to large steam producing boilers..these water treatment systems have multiple stages of filtering and actually produce non conductive purified water to the extent that it is actually unhealthy to drink because it will absorb minerals from your body

From what I understand most bottled water is tap water, well at least 40%.
