Bottled water with fluoride?

Had a high caries risk patient today who said she only drinks bottled water, never even rinses with her tap water. She then asked me if bottled water has fluoride in it, I told her that I don’t know of any brands that do & encouraged her to use a Brita filter instead of bottled water so she can get more fluoride from her drinking water.
Was curious if anyone knew any brands of bottled water that contain fluoride?

According to the ADA, “Many bottled waters on the market do not contain optimal levels of fluoride. In addition, some types of home water treatment systems (e.g., reverse osmosis and distillation systems) can reduce the fluoride levels in water supplies, potentially decreasing the decay-preventive effects of optimally fluoridated water; however, carbon/charcoal filtration systems do not remove fluoride.”

Here is a link to a list I found of bottled water that contains fluoride:
