How does hamburgers take so much water to make?



  1. 0 Votes

    The beef cattle that are raised to create hamburgers are fed with corn for most of their lives (after a few months on grass as calves). Corn is a very water-intense crop and beef cattle eat a lot of it. As a result, a kilogram of beef takes about 100,000 liters of water to create (over 12,000 gallons/pound), of which the animal only directly consumes 1-2%.
