What is Coconut Water?

What is Coconut Water?

Coconut water is the clear liquid found inside green, immature coconuts. Young coconuts are favoured for their water as it is tastier, more plentiful in volume and easier to access. Varieties of coconut yield slightly different-tasting water, depending on where they are grown.

Coconut water also differs in taste and nutrition to coconut milk and oil, both of which are made from the flesh of the coconut.

Is coconut water safe for everyone?

Is coconut water safe for everyone?

For the majority of people, coconut water is generally recognised as safe. However, if you have renal failure or a kidney condition that requires you to manage your potassium intake, it may not be an appropriate source of regular hydration.

Furthermore, coconut water is a source of simple carbs, so if you’ve been diagnosed as pre-diabetic or diabetic, check first with your GP or registered dietician before adding significant quantities to your diet.

Allergic reactions to coconut are rare, although contact dermatitis and sensitisation to the tree pollen is more common.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
