Vita Coco Questions & Answers
What's the difference between coconut water and coconut milk? There’s a big difference between coconut water and coconut milk. Coconut water is the clear, electrolyte rich liquid from inside younger coconuts and contains zero fat and zero cholesterol. Coconut milk, on the other hand, is what is produced from grating the “meat” of older, brown coconuts: a white, rich liquid containing oils and fat, and often used as an ingredient in cooking and baking.
Do taste and color vary? Yes, the taste and color of coconut water varies based on country of origin and agricultural conditions. As coconut water’s popularity has skyrocketed in the U.S., every major brand, including Vita Coco, is producing beverage products in different parts of the world. At Vita Coco, they produce in Brazil, Southeast Asia and Mexico specifically. Coconut waters from different parts of the world have variations in taste and color, and they do note that ‘taste and color may vary’ on their packaging. Regardless of the coconut’s country of origin, they strive for the freshest tasting, most delicious coconut water possible in every unit.
Why does Vita Coco add natural fruit sugar? Vita Coco’s non-flavored coconut water beverage now includes “less than 1% natural fruit sugar” on its ingredient list. (Note that this does not apply to Vita Coco’s flavored beverages.) This addition enables Vita Coco to standardize the sweetness level of its beverages regardless of harvest, time of year, or country of origin. Depending on the sweetness of a harvest, Vita Coco adjusts the sugar level in the packaged beverage to ensure consistency of sweetness. Taste may continue to vary slightly as Vita Coco is a natural beverage made from coconuts sourced from around the world.
What is the source of the "natural fruit sugar" added to Vita Coco? The fruit sugar added to Vita Coco’s non-flavored coconut water is natural and derived from fruit such as pears and apples. Vita Coco does not use corn-derived sugars.
Do they pasteurize this product? Yes. Their machinery uses a patented method to extract the coconut water then filter and flash pasteurize the water at 120 degrees for up to five seconds, before packaging it in its aseptic Tetra Pak package. Only Tetra Pak stabilizes the coconut water and gives Vita Coco a shelf life of 12 months.
How long after I open a Vita Coco does it stay fresh? They suggest that if you open a Vita Coco and do not finish drinking it, that you place it in a refrigerator and drink it within 24-48 hours.
How much coconut water should I drink? They know consumers enjoy drinking Vita Coco regularly but always advise moderation. Typically, they recommend no more than two to three 8.5-ounce servings per day.
Is Vita Coco gluten free and vegan-approved? It's a big yes to both; their coconut water is gluten free and vegan-approved, as Vita Coco does not contain any animal-derived or dairy products in its beverages.
Is Vita Coco kosher? Yes, Vita Coco is kosher and is Star K certified.
Can women that are pregnant drink Vita Coco? Yes, because it is pasteurized. In fact, Pregnancy Magazine featured Vita Coco as a way for expectant mothers to "drink smart" in their October 2010 issue.
Tell me more about their packaging. What is Tetra Pak? Vita Coco produces the freshest tasting coconut water possible by packaging its beverages in Tetra Pak, an eco and socially-responsible form of packaging based on the use of wood fiber, a sustainable source. Tetra Pak is BPA-free. Tetra Pak helped form the Carton Council, which to date has given one in three households, in 39 states, carton recycling access. Tetra Pak was also recognized with The Presidential Award for Sustainable Development in 1996. Tetra Pak is committed to making food safer with minimum stress on the environment.
About Vita Coco
One evening in a Manhattan bar in February 2003, childhood friends, Ira Liran and Michael Kirban, were speaking with two young women they had just met from Brazil. When asked what they missed most about their country, one of the girls, without hesitation, answered “agua de coco.” Coconut water, she explained, is the most nutritious and delicious drink in the world. Two months later in Brazil, visiting one of the Brazilian women who would eventually become his wife, Liran started researching the prospect of branding coconut water for the American market. He realized her enthusiasm for the beverage was not exaggerated – Brazilians just cannot get enough coconut water. After spending several months working with coconut plantations and producers, making connections, and learning the politics of production in Brazil, Vita Coco was born.
Meanwhile, Kirban started the initial market research in New York. Meeting with distributors and beverage insiders, he quickly realized the tremendous consumer interest in “functional beverages.” He spoke with several distributors who then introduced Kirban to some of their key accounts. The response was fantastic. In summer 2004, the two successfully brought Vita Coco to market in a handful of stores along the East Coast. Since that fateful night on the Lower East Side in 2003, Vita Coco has not only carved a new market in the non-carbonated beverage business and redefined the alternative sports beverage category, it has also become one of the fastest growing lifestyle beverages in North America. Vita Coco’s popularity only continues to increase. Now available in over 60,000 retail stores nationally, Vita Coco is one of the hottest beverage brands in the world, with a cult-like brand loyalty.

I recommend this product!
I have tried all of the Vita Coco flavors and this one is my absolute favorite by far. Not only is the taste great, but the drink itself is extremely healthy, as it provides my body with the potassium that it has definitely been lacking. Try it out and see for yourself!
