Mizu uses 18/8 stainless steel to make its bottles better. So, What is 18/8 Stainless Steel? Steel, by definition, is an iron-based alloy. 18/8 stainless steel is 18% chromium, 8% nickel and the remainder iron. The chromium and nickel allow the alloy to be corrosion resistant. 18/8 stainless steel is considered "food-grade" stainless steel because chemicals cannot migrate into food. There are many other grades of stainless steel used in the production of water bottles from 18/0 to 18/8, but Mizu uses only the highest quality 18/8 food grade stainless steel in all products.
