it's official: do not put in metal container

reading a package of kool-aid (lemonade kool-aid specifically)

Directions: Empty contents into large plastic or glass pitcher. Add 1 cup sugar (more or less to taste). Add cold water and ice to make 2 quarts; stir to dissolve. Do not store in metal container


why not? what's in kool-aid that would make it react with a metal container that would make it unfit for drinking?

ingredients: citric acid (provides tartness), calcium phosphate (prevents caking), maltodextrin (from corn), salt, natural flavour, lemon juice solids, ascorbic acid (vitamin C), artifical colour, yellow 5 lake, yellow 5, BHA (preserves freshness)

I think it's because storing any sort of liquid in metal containers may cause it to develop a metallic-type taste. That's why you're supposed to use glass, plastic, or stainless steel.

I would have guessed that oit was either the citric or ascorbic acid, but I've heard the same warning for water. I'm assuming that perhaps it isn't the liquid that is at fault: most likely metal containers are somewhat unstable and may impart a metallic residue into ANY liquid.

Just a guess. I'm not going to try it regardless.

Sounds like a crayon colour..

Did you know they had to change the crayon name of 'Indian Red?'

It's probably for storage... I mean that's why some canned pineapples taste really metalic.

I guess the metal may conduct heat into the kool-aid and then it'd turn warm and un-drinkable.

No, it's black b/c the metal casts this weird shadow on it. Then you pour it in a glass and voila! Its red again! Like magic!
