Real vs. Fake Berkey

New logo on Berkey systems! A cleaner, more simplified Berkey logo is making its way on the production line.

In this case, the new logo is just a re-branding.

Never Use Tap Water as an Ingredient in These Four Recipes

Don't use chlorinated tap water with these recipes! The chlorine in impure water can affect the way food tastes, smells, and bakes. Most notably chlorine kills yeast. Most municipalities use chlorine or chlorine by-products to sanitize water for its citizens. Sanitized water is great! By no means do we want cities to stop cleaning the water, however, we believe that water should be in its natural state--pure. It's especially important to use pure water for certain ingredients.  If a favorite recipe calls for water, make sure it really is just water, not a chemical soup of toxins that most tap water spits out. Tap water is a teaming mishmash of killer bacteria, lingering viruses, or traces of who-knows-what chemicals. That's why it is critical to use pure water, Berkey water, for special recipes.
