"Virtual water -- the amount of water it takes to produce goods or a service -- has been suggested as a possible solution to this growing problem by using virtual water values to inform international trade deals."

Wouldn't this be the water footprint?

Virtual water sounds like that freeze-dried product that is placed in a Sierra cup into which water is added.

Dehydrated water is another alternative, but doesn't preserve the structure of the water as well (also generally compromising vitamins, nutrients, color, or aroma).
