March 22 is World Water Day. So a simple pop-quiz: If you want to plan a water-wise menu which would you choose:
- Chicken or beef?
- Potato or rice?
You might also want to run these food-related comparisons:
- Apple juice or orange juice?
- Wine or beer?
- Tea or coffee?
- Chicken is the more water-wise choice, consuming 1,773 L of water per 0.5 kg, compared to beef at 6,810 L of water per 0.5 kg.
- Potatoes trump rice at 1,250 L less water per pound. Potatoes take approximately 450 L of water per 0.5 kg while rice consumes 1,700 L per 0.5 kg.
