Blind taste tests consistency demonstrate that most people cannot tell the difference between bottled water and tap water, according to a recent article on the — Medical News Today website .
In one study published in the Journal of Sensory Studies, only 36 percent of the participants were able to distinguish between bottled water and tap water when the tap water was free of chlorine. The article added that an option for improving the taste of tap water is using a filter.
“Of course, there’s more involved than just the taste of tap water versus bottled water,” said Allen Baler, owner of Nashville, Tenn.-based 4Patriots LLC. “Most important is the safety issue. The best way to know your tap water is safe to drink is by using a water purifier in your home.
“No matter where you live, there’s a good chance you have some contaminants in the water that comes out of your faucets. You owe it to yourself and your family to make sure your tap water is safe for drinking and cooking.”
