Yes, It does contain Fluoride – .29 ppm or .024mg/L. If you don’t understand what these numbers mean, they mean that Fiji water has a lot more fluoride than most other bottled waters.
Fluoride is not on the list of minerals on my Fiji bottle (UK), but if you go to the Fiji website, you will see that it DOES contain Fluoride; it has. I saw on the video “The Truth About Water” that someone called the company and was told that it has about 2.6 mg per liter.
The program’s tester got a result of.3. It’s all a bit vague, and since it’s a natural product, it probably changes a bit.
The South Pacific is home to the island country of Fiji. It is made up of about 330 islands, of which 110 are permanently inhabited. There are 18,376 square kilometers of land.
Most of the people live on Viti Levu and Vanua Levu, which are the two largest islands. Like many other developing countries, Fiji has a lot of oral diseases and has a hard time getting the best oral health possible.
A 2004 National Oral Health Survey (NOHS) found that dental caries and periodontal disease were the two most important oral health problems. Dental caries was common in all age groups.
Caries can be prevented by fluoridating the water in a community. The right level for a country with a tropical climate is between 0.6 and 0.8 parts per million (ppm).

Fluoridating water is a very cheap way to get fluoride into the body.
3-8 Even though fluoride in toothpaste, mouthwashes, and professional fluoride treatments like varnishes can help reduce dental caries, fluoridating the water is a better way to make sure that everyone uses it.
Fiji’s drinking water comes from a variety of places, such as reticulated water systems in larger cities, rainwater stored in tanks, and water taken straight from rivers, springs, boreholes, and wells.
The main source of water for all big towns on Fiji’s bigger islands is surface water.
The Tamavua water treatment plant gives drinking water to most of the city of Suva, which has the most people, and to the areas around it in Nausori. It gives water to more than 300,000 people, which is about half of all the people who live in Fiji.
The Fiji Public Works Department makes sure that more than 80% of the country’s people have clean water to drink. The lack of comprehensive laws and the involvement of many government agencies that deal with water in some way or another have made it hard for Fiji to develop water supply systems in a consistent way.
These agencies include those in charge of public utilities, lands and mineral resources, health and medical services, regional development, housing, squatter settlement, agriculture, environment, and fisheries.
