Why does water taste better in a glass cup

Great! Share this article  

Water tastes so much better in glass bottles, glasses, and ceramic cups than it does in plastic or Styrofoam. This is because of the purity and inertness of glass—it lets you taste the water's true flavor, while plastic and styrofoam contain chemicals that can taint your drink.

Water tastes better in glass bottles, glasses, and ceramic cups than it does in plastic or Styrofoam.

The reason for this is that water can absorb chemicals from the container it's stored in. Plastic contains chemicals such as BPA (bisphenol A) and phthalates. These chemicals leach into your beverage over time, tainting its taste and making you sick. For example:

  • Researchers at Johns Hopkins University found that people who drank out of plastic water bottles had higher levels of BPA in their urine than those who drank out of glass bottles.
  • Studies have linked phthalate exposure to early puberty (for girls). Other studies have linked phthalate exposure to obesity.

Glass is the purest and most inert material that a container can be made out of.

Because of its chemical stability, glass does not react with the liquid it contains. Glass doesn't leach chemicals into your beverage or food, so you know you're getting exactly what you see: pure water.

Glass is also a natural material, which means it's free from harmful additives like lead and cadmium—two heavy metals commonly found in metal bottles that can leach into liquids over time. Plus, unlike plastic or metal bottles, glass won’t transfer any flavors or scents to liquids stored inside them. These properties make drinking from glass cups feel fresher than any other type of beverage container!

Plastic contains chemicals such as BPA and phthalates.

  • BPA is a chemical found in plastic.
  • It's been linked to cancer, infertility, and other health problems.
  • BPA is found in plastic water bottles, baby bottles and food containers.

You may have heard of the dangers of BPA before—it's even been banned from some items by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration). But if you haven't gotten around to replacing all your plastics with glass yet (we don't blame you), here are three ways switching out your drinking vessels can help your health:

Styrofoam tastes bad because of air exposure.

You might think that the taste is coming from the plastic itself, but you're wrong. Styrofoam cups are made from polystyrene, which is a petroleum product. Polystyrene contains benzene, a toxic chemical (and possible carcinogen) that can leach into the water over time.

If you drink out of Styrofoam cups regularly, this can be problematic for your health. While the amount of benzene in one cup of water may not seem like much—and it isn't—the cumulative effect on your system could increase your risk of developing cancer over time.

Water tastes so much better in glass cups. Use them!

  • Glass is the purest and most inert material that a container can be made out of. It doesn't leach chemicals or impart flavors, so you're getting the most authentic experience when drinking from a glass cup.
  • Plastic contains chemicals such as BPA and phthalates that are considered harmful to health, not just in the short-term but also over time. Exposure to these chemicals can cause hormone disruption, reproductive issues, cancer and learning disabilities among other things.
  • Styrofoam cups don't taste good because they contain air—plastic foams are designed to be used with liquid sealants like polyurethane or polyethylene which are designed not to let any oxygen through them (and therefore don't impart flavor). However when this type of foam is heated up in an oven it allows moisture inside it's pores which then evaporates out into air bubbles creating an unpleasant taste experience when drinking from one

We hope that you’ve gained a greater understanding of why water tastes better in glass bottles, glasses and cups than it does in plastic or Styrofoam. Glass is the purest and most inert material that a container can be made out of, which means there are no chemicals leaching into your drink. Plastic contains chemicals such as BPA and phthalates - these chemicals could affect your health if they get into your system through food or drink! Lastly, Styrofoam tastes bad because of air exposure (or lack thereof). So remember - next time you feel thirsty for some refreshing water; reach for one of our ceramic or glass containers instead!
