Potassium: Sodium Ratio
Historically, humans have consumed more potassium than sodium form their diets. Good thing-whether they consciously knew or let Mother Nature have her way. C2O Pure Coconut Water has a potassium to sodium ration of 4:1. This is higher than the Food an Nutrition Board.
No Bad Stuff
Coconut water contains no gluten. Unlike coconut milk, it contains no fat including no saturated fat. Since their unsweetened coconut water is all natural there are no additives including no preservatives. They like what Mother Nature Offered- as is.
Coconut water's neutral pH does not contribute to the destructive effects of all too prevalent acidic foods. It is for this reason that some say coconut water soothes the stomach.
The C2O Difference
Not all coconut water are created equal. C2O has taken extra care to select and pack what they believe to be the best tasting coconut water in the world.
Here's what makes C2O different:
Their 100% Pure C2O is from young green coconuts from an especially fragrant and tasty variety that are unique to the inland soils of Thailand. These coconuts are a fresh water varietel that yield a more delightful taste than the salty flavor that accompanies more commonly used coastal coconuts.
All their coconut water is packed fresh, with each batch flavor tasted before being packed to ensure every can has their signature flavor and the quality that makes C2O so popular among coconut water lovers. C2O's great taste is all pure, unlike some others who add extra sweeteners or flavors to mask their saltier taste.
Pacific Islanders packed young coconuts as their main source of sustenance for their long journeys across the ocean. Coconut water provided the hydration and nutrients to survive without fresh water and even food. Not to mention the coconut water stayed completely uncontaminated inside the coconut until cracked open - talk about being naturally preserved!
Oral Rehydration Solution
Coconut water is becoming well known for its hydration properties, so much so that the World Health Organization (WHO) recognizes coconut water as a substitute Oral Rehydration Solution (ORS) when other fluids are not available. WHO references green coconut water.
Tree of Life
There's more to a coconut tree than its water. A coconut husk or palm can be woven and used for materials for boats, homes, nets, clothing and bedding; the nut for food, drink and medicine and the sap as an all-natural sweetener. The coconut tree with its myriad of uses has been so essential to sustaining life for hundreds of years no wonder Pacific Islanders call it "The Tree of Life."
Coconut water is credited with saving countless lives in the South Pacific over the years in the aftermath of Tsunamis that have wiped out all sources of fresh drinking water. A coconut can go on living for months after it falls from the palm. The juice is hermetically sealed from mold or bacteria.
Why Green Coconuts?
As a coconut ripens, the nutrients of th water are lost into the meat of the coconut. That's why young coconuts are picked for their water at about 8-9 months of age. A fully ripe coconut at 12-13 months is full of fatty white coconut meat from which coconut milk is pressed. A young, green coconut contains a soft jelly-like meat, sometimes used as baby food by the Islanders, and nothing but pure, young, fat-free coconut water that's high in potent vitamins and minerals.
Where the Water Comes From
The coconut is a drupe or large single-seeded fruit. It filters water from its surrounding environment through the fibers of dense husk so that each coconut holds roughly 8-12 ounces of pure, refreshing coconut water. A seasonal super fruit? - Nope. Each Coconut palm delivers roughly 100-140 coconuts a year! That's year-round readily available hydration.
