Interactive: how much water is used in the production of different foods?

Italian graphic design specialist Angela Morelli has put together an interactive visualization explaining how much water we consume indirectly through eating and drinking different foods and drinks. Coffee and beef have two of the most water-intensive production processes, with thousands of litres used to provide the amounts of food and drink you might consume in a typical day. Scroll down through the graphic to watch its story unfold.

The original graphic by Angela Morelli can be found online.
