Are electrolytes in water important for its flavor?

Asked a year ago

I recently bought a reverse osmosis filter for my apartment. I live in an old apartment building, and the tap water occasionally has strange odors and tastes. I've been getting much cleaner water, but can't stand the taste. My coworker speculated that it has something to do with the electrolyte imbalance in filtered water. Should I re-add them?

Reverse osmosis is a great system for filtering water, but it does also remove all the essential minerals as well as contaminants. Electrolytes are essential minerals, like sodium, calcium, and potassium, and do contribute to the flavor of the water. You can add mineral drops to improve the taste and health benefits of your RO water.
