Can I drink Rodi water?

Answered by Christopher Steppe

As an expert sommelier and brewer, I can provide you with some insights on drinking RO (Reverse Osmosis) or Rodi (Reverse Osmosis Deionized) . While it is generally safe to drink Rodi water, there are a few considerations to keep in mind.

RO water is produced by a filtration process that removes impurities, including minerals and contaminants, from tap water. Rodi water, on the other hand, goes a step further by also removing ions and dissolved solids, resulting in an even purer form of water.

Many people prefer the taste of RO or Rodi water as it tends to be more neutral and lacks the mineral flavor that tap water can sometimes have. However, it is worth noting that minerals play a vital role in our overall health and well-being.

Drinking water that lacks minerals can potentially lead to mineral deficiencies over time. While this is not a concern if you consume a well-balanced diet with plenty of mineral-rich foods, relying solely on RO or Rodi water for hydration may not provide your body with the essential minerals it needs.

There have been a couple of studies suggesting that excessive consumption of RO or Rodi water can indeed deplete your body of minerals. These studies highlight the importance of obtaining minerals from dietary sources rather than relying solely on water for mineral intake.

Personally, I have found that drinking RO water in moderation has not caused any negative effects on my health. However, I make sure to supplement my mineral intake through a balanced diet that includes plenty of fruits, vegetables, and other mineral-rich foods.

If you are considering drinking Rodi water as your primary source of hydration, it may be beneficial to consult with a healthcare professional or nutritionist to ensure you are meeting your mineral requirements. They can help you design a diet plan that compensates for any potential mineral deficiencies.

While it is generally safe to drink Rodi water, it is important to be mindful of potential mineral deficiencies. Incorporating a diverse range of mineral-rich foods in your diet can help ensure you maintain a healthy balance of essential minerals. As with any dietary choice, it is always a good idea to consult with a healthcare professional or nutritionist for personalized advice.
