First and foremost coconut water from fresh immature coconuts is RAW!
This means that it has not undergone any form of heat treatment that bottled or packaged coconut water has had to undergo. Some might claim some fancy extraction method or process but it will still be heat treated or pasteurised.
Coconut water is an extremely fragile liquid that oxidises rapidly once exposed to the environment. More importantly any pasteurisation (heat) methods compromise both the taste and nutrient value of the coconut water.
Here are just a few reasons to choose fresh coconuts over coconut water brands such as Beyond, Cocobella and Vitacoco.
- Its Natural. Many advocates of pasteurisation state that is saves you from harmful microorganisms and extends the shelf life of the coconut water it comes with a price to pay. It destroys the many inherent healthy properties and naturally occurring enzymes.
- Some use added sugar. Need we say more
- It's RAW
- Biodegradable.Coconut husks are 100% biodegradable and compostable.
