Water extracted from potatoes could replace supplies from the tap and even provide drinking water in areas suffering from drought.

New technology for extracting water from potatoes is being trialled by food giants PepsiCo, which owns the crisp manufacturer Walkers.

They are perfecting a process to capture water released from the potatoes as they are cooked into crisps before using it in the manufacturing process.

Engineers behind the project say they hope to be able to run entire factories using extracted potato water, meaning they can be unplugged entirely from the mains supply.
