Drinking water in the US usually is free of most pathogenic microorganisms that cause serious illnesses, such as typhoid, dysentery and cholera. This largely is due to the disinfection of public water supplies with chlorine.
While water chlorination eliminates most waterborne contaminants, problems remain. Disinfected but unfiltered water can contain large amounts of chlorine and related byproducts that negatively affect health, as well as the taste of the water. If unfiltered water is used in cooking, those chemicals also affect the taste of foods and drinks we consume.
This is why every home should have a water filtering system, so that even water for cooking is purer and cleaner.
Some of the advantages of cooking with filtered water include:
Better tasting coffee and tea
More appetizing food – chlorinated water can cause cooking water to taste odd, which can affect food, such as pasta. Chlorine also can affect food color.
Tastier homemade bread – chlorine can affect yeast, which is a particular problem in sourdough recipes.
Cleaner fruits and vegetables – washing produce in filtered water prevents contamination with chlorine and related byproducts. Even washing salad in chlorinated water can have negative effects.
