On hot summer days, tastes good with fruit and herbs flavoured water particularly well. However, as long as the ingredients in the pitcher of water?
Freiburg (dpa/tmn) - lemon or ginger slices, fresh berries, watermelon or mint in the choice of ingredients for the summer water carafe, the imagination has no limits. In warm temperatures-infused water with fruit, vegetables or herbs especially refreshing - and encouraged to drink plenty of.
But how long the ingredients keep in the decanter?
"You can pour the day, always fresh water, but I would not keep the water carafe on the night - not in the fridge," says Dagmar von Cramm, Nutritionist and author based in Freiburg, Germany.
ginger and lemon slices were the exception: The were a little longer and would make on the second day Aroma. Berries and herbs, however, should not be used any longer.
"The mud can be suggests berries and puree - for example, for a salad dressing in the evening or the yogurt the next Morning," Cramm.
in addition to the optical impression of the ingredients in the pitcher of water, there is a fact, whether the drink is in the fridge or on the table. "In a relatively warm summer temperatures is not due to the fruits of all this concern, but more because of the water, because the developed germs," says von Cramm.
