Taste of pure water produced through reverse osmosis

Reverse osmosis is increasingly used for desalination and purifying water unable to be treated by other means for removing trace contaminants known to impact on human health. However, what is the taste of pure water produced by reverse osmosis?

 

The answer is it is different from tap water. Specifically, Singapore uses reverse osmosis for producing pure water from seawater, but as the produced pure water is essentially free of almost all minerals that give water its subtle taste, it is not recommended for direct consumption.
