I know blood has iron in it, I've just never tasted it in the water. Chlorine yes, salt yes but never iron. I wonder if anyone else has aver tasted it. They are still arguing about fluoridation of water around where we live. I was taught by a Fluorine expert at UMIST and he said it was not a good idea. So perhaps bottled water in areas where they do fluorinate is a good idea. I have probably opened up another kettle of worms now.

Our water has lots of iron in it and who knows what else!  We have a water softner, but it still tastes bad, so we spend a small fortune on bottled water.

If the iron concentrations are high enough you WILL taste it. Water wells that have it taste like water boiled in a rusty cast iron pot.

There have been many times locally drinking different waters, where I would taste iron.. and it does taste like blood... Nasty water...... YUCK! many times this has happened especially for years in McKinleyville.. I always thought it was the old worn out iron pipes on the older homes... you rarely  taste it anymore, but it is still there depending on where you are..

We get our water normally from an underwater spring.. it is the best water around... no iron taste just very good cold crisp clean water... Sadly right now my pump broke.. and I am on temporary city water.. I hate the chlorine taste!

Yup well that's what the water in England tastes like (tap..)

But the English people don't seem to taste it..

Tastes like tap water... from the city.. treated and all???


My tap water is generally untreated straight from the mountain spring.. very good water.. and is sampled every year and is a sample well as far as the stability of the well!

If you have any of the small square sided water bottle, I make air powered boats out of them and I can't get enough to fill the workshop orders.

Another dose of grr:

2 minute noodle packet quoting nutritional contents per 100g (%) AFTER you make it up, as instructed, with 375mL water. When the noodles themselves only weigh 80g, all the values (energy/fat/protein/carbohydrate/sodium/etc.) are effectively a fifth of what they would be if referring to just the noodles. Dodgy.
