    The Importance of Filtered Water in the Kitchen

    Most people want to enjoy cleaner, purer drinking water, but that’s only part of the equation. Think about how much water you use in the kitchen. Not just the glasses of water you drink, but the water you pour into the coffeemaker, the big pots of water that cook pasta, and the water that makes fluffy, perfect rice. Make sure that all the water you consume has been filtered. Cleaner water is not only better for your family’s health, you’ll also notice a tasty difference in the food and drinks you prepare in the kitchen.

    Coffee and Tea Taste Better

    Most public water supplies contain a chlorine disinfectant, which can lead to an unpleasant taste in your tap water. By removing most of the chlorine through filtration, your tea and coffee will have a noticeably better flavor. Whether you love a strong espresso or a calming decaf, you can elevate your coffee into true aficionado territory by brewing with properly filtered water.

    Better Bread and Pasta

    Chlorinated water can also have a negative effect on yeast. This is particularly a problem with most sourdough recipes. Once you try pasta boiled in filtered water, you’ll notice a better taste than run-of-the-mill pasta that is cooked in chlorinated tap water.

    Cleaner and Tastier Fruits and Vegetables

    Washing your produce with filtered water prevents potential contamination from chlorine byproducts and bacteria in the water supply. Simply washing your salad lettuce in regular tap water can leave an unpleasant aftertaste as the food absorbs the chlorine.
