What is sparkling mineral water?

Most sparkling or fizzy mineral water is simply ordinary mineral water with carbon dioxide added, to make the bubbles.

In the rare cases of 'naturally sparkling mineral water', the original source contains gas, giving it the bubbles, or at least an effervescence. But in some cases, the bottlers (such as Perrier) extract the natural gas found with the water and then reintroduce it to provide a consistent fizzy effect.
