Water is our daily requirement, but have u ever realised, water everywhere tastes different!
At some places the smells vary, at some places the taste. In some of the places we get salty water to drink. This is because of dissolved solids in water which varies from place to place and bring the changes in taste of water. In almost all processes whether industrial or domestic water is required, and its quality is controlled at many places.
Distilled water and boiling water are two products of two completely different water processes. Both boiling and distilled water are involved in the liquid and gaseous states of water.
WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BOILED AND DISTILLED WATER?
1-Distilled water is made through a series of complex steps and processes. In this process, the water is boiled until all the water is converted to steam. The vapor is then condensed and transported to another container, where it returns from a gaseous state to a liquid form. Distilled water is also considered pure and drinkable. The disadvantage of this type of water is that the process eradicates all substances in the water, so it has no nutritional benefits and has a mild taste. Distilled water is used not only for drinking, but also for research and experiments. Because it is pure water, distilled water does not contain impurities, microorganisms, pollutants, or nutrients. The distillation process has eliminated all elements in the water. This includes minerals, bacteria, bacteria, viruses, heavy metals, salts and more. The list of nutrients deficient in distilled water contains small amounts of nutrients such as calcium, sodium, potassium, and fluoride. Distillation is usually done in the laboratory where special equipment is available for this purpose. The actual process can take hours, as there are many steps, and the water needs to condense back into a liquid form.
2-Boiling water, on the other hand, is water that has been boiled for 15 minutes to reach a temperature of 100 degrees Celsius or 212 degrees Fahrenheit. Boiling water is the first step in the distillation process. Boiling water is a simple process for purifying water. It kills all microorganisms such as bacteria, viruses, and bacteria, but leaves impurities and nutrients behind. This type of water is typically used for emergency water disposal or as a method of disinfecting water in rural areas and flood situations. The main goal is to have enough water for drinking and cleaning purposes. Compared to the distillation process, boiling water takes only a short time. Boiling water also has a "taste" because minerals are not removed from the water itself. Besides the purpose of drinking, boiling water is also used in many recipes as a preparation and main cooking method. Boiling water is usually used in water-based dishes that require broth or other liquids as a base.
In other words:
1. Distilled water is a product of water that is subjected to many procedures and processes. Water is heated, boiled, and converted to steam. As vapor, it condenses into its liquid form as pure water. On the other hand, boiling water only boils until it reaches the boiling point. Some of the water turns into steam, while the rest remains liquid due to the boiling mechanism.
2. Comparing the processes, the distilled water returns to its liquid form. The only part of the water in the boiling water process changes to another state.
3. Distilled water lacks all the beneficial minerals, pollutants, microbes, etc. so it has no “taste”.
4. Boiling water retains its "taste" because the only group of objects that have been removed or killed is microorganisms. Minerals and impurities remain.
5. Boiling water is also the first requirement to obtain distilled water. Compared to the latter, preparation is easier and faster.
6. Boiling water requires only fire and boiling containers, while distilled water requires a variety of equipment’s, including containers for water and glass equipment. The glass system collects the evaporated water and transports it from one container to another. Of course, the prerequisite for this is a burner.
