Default Sparkletts Crystal Fresh RO Water For Brewing?

Sold at Home Depot, says it has a 'special, light mineral blend for great taste'. What little I could find on the web was a brief analysis that said:

Calcium Ion: 0.7 PPM
Magnesium: 0.8 PPM
Sulfates: 3.4 PPM
Sodium: 3.8 PPM
Other Principal Components: Chloride 3.5 PPM

Would this be good for brewing? I need to figure something out, since our local water is treated with chloramines and I've heard that's no bueno for brewing. TIA for any insights or suggestions.
