Does “Distilled water” need a Hechsher? or pose a problem of bishul akum?
(my understanding of distilled water is that it’s purity comes from it’s being cooked to a steam then afterward collected)

Answer:

While it is customary to purchase all products with a hechsher when possible, pure water, including distilled does not require a hechsher and poses no problem of bishul akum.
