10. Filtered Water
Did you know that your water will actually affect the taste of your food? There could be a number of issues with your water. Check out our Water Problems page to learn more.
The problem could be:
Hard water is caused by calcium and magnesium buildup. Certain areas tend to be more susceptible to these minerals. Check this link to see if your area is particularly affected. Thankfully, removing these minerals from your water is not an intimidating process.
Bad Smell in the Water
Homeowners often complain of water that smells and tastes odd or unpalatable. Often the cause is chlorine or other chemicals that are present in the water. Chlorine has been added to municipal water for decades as a disinfectant that helps to kill bacteria throughout the system.
Both the minerals in hard water and the chemicals present in municipal water can affect the taste and quality of the food that you are cooking. To improve the quality of your food today check out the solutions above.
