5 Reasons Why Cooking with Filtered Water is Better for You

Aqua Fresh explains the benefits of using filtered water in cooking food.


Did you know by the time water travels from the water treatment plant to your home, it picks up a number of contaminants?

Contaminants including bacteria, chlorine, fluoride, heavy metals, chemicals, unwanted minerals and other impurities can seriously affect the quality and taste of your water.


Here are some more of the advantages of cooking with filtered water:

1. Softer baked goods – If you love to bake bread, a water filtration system could be especially useful. Filtered water can increase the effectiveness of yeast in bread, helping the dough to rise more and lead to a softer, fluffier bread at the end.

2. Better tasting coffee – Many coffee lovers (and tea lovers) prefer making espresso with filtered water, and reverse osmosis or distilled water is the most commonly used method as the right amount of minerals in the water allows for the notes and flavours of the coffee to shine.

3. Lower sodium levels – Depending on where you live, your tap water could contain up to 300 milligrams of sodium per litre, which is a significant portion of the recommended daily value. Too much sodium can cause kidney failure and heart disease.

4. Vibrant produce – Unfiltered water can even affect the way your food looks. Most tap water contains chlorine, an active ingredient in bleach, which can strip the colours of your food. Just washing your produce in unfiltered water can visibly make it less appealing by dulling out the vibrant colours.

5. More flavourful food – Using filtered water helps to preserve food’s natural flavour. By removing unnecessary contaminants like chlorine or metals, your food will taste better because unfiltered water may contain a metallic taste.
