1.) What is coconut water?
Coconut water is the water found inside the coconut, where it is protected by the outer shell and meat of the coconut. It is here inside the coconut, where the water develops its valuable nutritional characteristics of minerals and electrolytes. Coconut water can also be referred to as coconut juice.
2.) Where is Blue Monkey coconut water sourced?
Blue Monkey coconut water is sustainably sourced and harvested year round in South East Asia- particularly the Philippines, Indonesia and Thailand. The sweet coconut water comes from young coconuts that are green in color instead of the typical brown that is found in grocery stores, which is a mature coconut. Blue Monkey’s coconuts arrive from nearby plantations for processing, after being selectively screened for optimum quality and sweetness. In addition to the quality standards set forth by Blue Monkey, the ethical treatment and environmental conditions of the coconut growers and processors, is a key requirement of the brand.
3.) What are some of the health benefits of coconut water?
Coconut water is a natural isotonic beverage high in natural minerals and electrolytes. Contains potassium and magnesium, making it a great way to naturally hydrate your body. The electrolyte balance found in coconut water is similar to that found in our blood. Coconut water is characteristically low in fat and calories, has no cholesterol, and has a natural balance of sodium, potassium, calcium and magnesium- making it a very healthy and naturally fat free beverage. It is also naturally gluten free.
Whether drinking coconut water for daily health or consuming after a night on the town, Blue Monkey may help alleviate fatigue. It naturally assists the body in replenishing lost vitamins and minerals. Some folks even say it is a great neutralizer for hangovers. And others report consuming after yoga or exercise.
4.) What is the history of the coconut?
The word coconut is derived from the Spanish and Portuguese word, meaning monkey-face. When you look at the bottom of a coconut, you will see three dots, resembling that of a monkey’s face (funny but true!). They are the fruit of the coconut palm, which are native to Malaysia, Polynesia, Southern Asia, South America, India, the Pacific Islands, Hawaii and Florida. Coconuts are used for their milk, meat (pulp), sugar and oil. The shell can also function as a dish or cup. The coconut husk can be burned for fuel and seeds from the husk can be used to make brushes, mats, fishnets and ropes. Coconut oil is used in many other products, including cosmetics, cooking oil, hair products, dietary supplements and skin care.
The coconut palm tree is an invaluable resource, providing food, drink, shelter, tools and much more. Every part of the tree has a use and so it has often been called “The Tree of Life” by many cultures around the world.
5.) How many different types of coconut waters are there?
There are two types of coconut water- with pulp and without pulp. Coconut water originates primarily from young coconuts, as they contain the most water and essential minerals and vitamins. Blue Monkey coconut water is made from 100% pure coconut water, or juice, as it is sometimes referred to. Taste profiles of sweetness may vary from region to region or country to country.
6.) What is so great about Blue Monkey coconut water?
Blue Monkey simply tastes great and consumers feel it is the best tasting coconut water available on the market! Blue Monkey does not add extra ingredients that are found in sport drinks or sodas – just a clear, sweet taste that nature provides. 100% natural juice.
7.) Why is Blue Monkey in a can as oppose to a bottle or tetra-pack?
Packaging Blue Monkey in a sealed, recyclable can assists the product in having a longer shelf life (2 yr+). As no preservatives are added to Blue Monkey, it is sealed to preserve freshness and exposure to any possible contaminants- 100% natural coconut water, just like drinking from a coconut! Blue Monkey cans do not contain BPA – and are easily recycled. Cans also allow the beverage to cool quickly.
8.) Is there any sugar added to Blue Monkey Coconut Water?
There is nothing added to Blue Monkey coconut water. It is 100% pure and has no sugar, preservatives or additional nutrients added. What you drink from the can is what is found naturally in the coconut itself.
9.) What is Blue Monkey Instant Coconut Water?
Blue Monkey Instant Coconut Water is the powder form of coconut water- to give you instant coconut water, anytime, anyplace! It is spray dried, dehydrated coconut water, with a bit of natural sugar, re- added to replace the sugar lost during the dehydration process. Blue Monkey Instant Coconut Water can be found in a box of 10 sachets and is great for on-the-go hydration, traveling and to throw in your gym bag!
10.) Why are Blue Monkey Coconut Water and Juice Blends important beverages for the consumer ?
Blue Monkey coconut water is 100% pure with nothing added. Our juice blends contain 80% coconut water and 20% natural juice (100% pure juice not from concentrate). Blue Monkey Juice Blends are a great way to reach the non-coconut water consumer and enable them to become familiar with the Blue Monkey 100% coconut water. The juice blends contain the similar beneficial mineral, vitamin and electrolyte components as the 100% coconut water and have added nutrients from specific fruits. We specifically do not add sulphites, preservatives or sugar to our juice blends and do add a minimal amount of natural agave to sweeten, where there is a requirement in the juice and taste profile.
The Blue Monkey Coconut Collection was formed in 2010 in response to the high demand for quality, not from concentrate, coconut water and all natural juice and coconut blends. The multi-generation, family owned company has an extensive history in the beverage industry, being the first company over 20 years ago to bottle premium glacier water in a patent, triangular PET bottle. Since those first beginnings, the company has created such high profile brands as ICE AGE Premium Glacier water and VORTEX 9.5, a premium, high alkaline glacier based water found at better health food and specialty stores. The Blue Monkey Coconut Collection is the creation of a full beverage line, from pure, fresh coconut water, with and without pulp, to all natural juice and coconut blends. Blue Monkey crystallized, de-hydrated coconut powder was developed for active people on the go who are still able to attain the benefits of coconut water, by simply adding the packet to a bottle of pure glacier water. The authentic taste profile is equivalent to the same coconut water found in the traditional Blue Monkey container. Customer satisfaction of the Blue Monkey Coconut Collection has been extremely favorable and loyal, growing this west coast based company’s distribution to a national and international level.
