Coconut Water is a naturally occuring liquid found inside the coconut and has been a favorite beverage of Asian and Pacific cultures for thousands of years. The Hawaiians called it “noelani” which means “dew from the heavens”. The Coconuts are grown using sustainable farming practices including intercropping with compatible native species and fertilisation producing healthy trees that are still producing at 60 to 80 years of age. Warmed by the sun and watered by almost daily tropical downpours, coconuts grow year round in the Philippines. When coconuts reach optimum ripeness at 9 to 10 months of age, they are hand harvested using traditional harvesting tools and immediately processed. Coconut Water Powder is prepared from freeze dried coconut water producing a highly soluble powdered format for exceptional ease of use and convenience - the powder also reduces the amount of wasteful tetra packaging and cans widely used for the sale of coconut water.
Coconut Water beverages are extremely popular and especially valued as an all natural, hydration drink. It is recognized for it's a natural abundance of vitamins (especially the B vitamins), minerals and trace elements including zinc, selenium, iodine, sulfur, and manganese. It also contains enzymes, amino acids, antioxidants and phytonutrients.
Coconut Water Powder can be rehydrated to form a natural electrolyte rich beverage with no sweetener or other additives needed. Can be added directly to smoothies, juices, or water.
