Navigating the Flow: Distilled vs. Purified Water

Distilled versus Purified Water Blog Pose

Water, the elixir of life, comes in various forms, and two terms often thrown into the hydration discussion are “distilled” and “purified” water. Are they the same, or do they have distinctive qualities? 

Distilled Water: 

Distilled water undergoes a meticulous boiling process to produce steam, which is then condensed into liquid form. This method effectively removes impurities, minerals, and contaminants, resulting in water as close to pure H2O as possible. Distilled water often gets a bad rap for its flat taste, mainly because minerals that contribute to flavor are removed during this process.

Purified Water: 

On the other hand, purified water is a broader term encompassing various water treatment methods. Standard purification processes include reverse osmosis, carbon filtration, and UV treatment. Purified water may also undergo distillation, removing a wide range of impurities. Purified water can retain a more natural taste, depending on the specific purification method.

The Uses: Tailoring Water to Your Needs

  • Distilled water is found in laboratories, medical settings, and certain household appliances that benefit from mineral-free water. 
  • With its diverse treatment options, purified water caters to a broader spectrum of needs, including drinking, cooking, and even beauty routines.
