Why should we drink coconut water?

Coconut water is a naturally pure, delicious, and easily digestible source of electrolyte minerals. We should drink it for quick hydration because it has many of the same electrolytes as our blood. It is low in sugar and is a 100% juice that is low in heavy metals. It contains the electrolytes sodium, potassium, phosphorous, and magnesium, which are efficiently absorbed by the body. Coconut water partly eliminates the need for mineral replenishment as it is a good source of potassium.

What do you mean when you say that coconut water is naturally low in calories & sugar?

Among all juice ingredients, coconut water at single-strength has the lowest brix content compared to its cost-in-use. Other low-brix juices such as cranberries, lemon, and lime are much more expensive and have overwhelmingly high acidity.

Where does the characteristic taste of coconut water come from?

You taste the naturally occurring electrolytes in coconut water that help reduce depletion of body minerals. While some people describe coconut water as being salty and others describe it as having a metallic taste, it is 100% natural.

Can coconut water be considered juice?

Coconut water is 100% juice. Coconut water and coconut juice are equally accurate, interchangeable descriptions. The juice is interior to the shell and is extracted by drilling or cracking. Pulpy fruits, on the other hand, are commonly extracted by mechanical pressing or enzymatic extraction. In the U.S., it is considered a juice. For other countries, please check with local authorities.

Is coconut water good for kids?

Because of coconut water’s natural nutrition and low sugar content, it is undeniably better for children than high-sugar drinks.

Is the coconut water Kosher?

Some coconut waters are kosher certified.

What is unique about coconut water?

Coconut water is a low acid juice. As an ingredient, it can be used to raise the brix-to-acid ratio of the juice blend to improve consumer preference, particularly for women and children.

What is the Allergen status of coconut?

Botanically, coconuts are fibrous drupes and not nuts. But the US FDA has classified it as a tree nut allergen to be included among the 8 major allergen categories, and thus it has to be labeled as an allergen in the US. In Europe and Canada it is not considered an allergen.

Why is coconut water so popular with athletes?

Being a good source of potassium and other electrolytes, elite athletes seek to avoid cramping and other performance-limiting symptoms stemming from lack of hydration during and after competition.

What are the pros and cons of green coconut water vs. mature coconut water?

Green coconut water is obtained from young immature coconuts. As the coconut matures, coconut cream and coconut meat develop. Mature coconuts contain the cream and meat while green coconuts only contain coconut water. Our coconut water is obtained from fully ripened (mature) coconuts. From a sustainability perspective, it is best to use coconuts that are fully ripened such as coconut meat, coconut cream, and coconut water. As a matter of fact, nothing goes to waste in our production plants. Even the brown shell is used for packaging and filling materials and is a natural carbon source of activated carbon (can be used for water purification) because it has extremely low heavy metal residues.

Why does coconut water blend so well with pulpy purees?

Being free of suspended solids, coconut water adds minimal texture and can effectively reduce viscosity and drinkability of thick purees such as banana, carrot, and tomato.
