More than half of Americans drink bottled water with their lunch, dinner or miscellaneous snack. This may seem like lunacy given that tap water available at most restaurants is perfectly safe, just as abundant and far cheaper.
Bottled fluid is important in the production of
- Industrial products such as plastics and fabrics
- Dairy products including ice cream
- Soft drinks including sodas
- Tea And surprisingly…cereal! Did you know that some cereals are filled with tiny bubbles of hydrogenated fat (aka trans fat) that’s created when they coat potato flakes to make them crispier? That’s because most cereal companies use palm oil instead of potatoes to create crispy cereals.
