Dry water consists of water droplets that have been coated with silica nanoparticles, which prevents the droplets from forming a liquid.

If a human swallows dry water, does it have the same effect as regular water? Or do the particles go through the digestive system without releasing water inside? Is it dangerous to "drink" dry water?

I would say yes but it might not be healthy because the droplets are covered in a silicon gel wrap. The wrap would dissolve and would release water.
