The benefits of coconut water for hydration. The loss of a small percentage of water can have a negative impact on your health. If you have dry skin, chapped lips, frequent headaches, fatigue and(or) dizziness when standing you may have mild dehydration and the simple solution is to get into habit of drinking at least 6 to 8 glasses of water a day.

What makes coconut water better for rehydration than water? When water exits the body, it takes along with-it electrolytes (ionic mineral content) such as sodium or potassium, which can quickly deplete the body’s electrolytes. Dehydration involves both, the loss of water and electrolytes.

Coconut water is beneficial for rehydration because it provides you with the lost electrolytes. Drinking a litre of water can cause discomfort or bloating and to replenish lost water you must also replenish lost electrolytes.

which provides a source of ionic trace minerals that are essential for total hydration

TIANA Pure Raw Coconut Water contains only naturally occurring sugar without any added sugar and therefore is much lower in calories compared to many other sugar-based sports drinks available. It is beneficial because of low acidity. Soft drinks and other prepared sports drinks are quite acidic making them potentially irritating to the stomach lining.

What you did not know about coconut water, the facts!

Coconut Water is the liquid you find when you crack open a coconut. For thousands of years this fluid has been used as a refreshing drink and is the most popular beverage in the tropics. It is considered not just a satisfying beverage but also a health tonic.

The quality of the coconut water depends on many factors including the variety of the coconuts

Coconut Water from young green coconuts

The coconuts used for drinking are “young” or “green” coconuts, not the mature brown, hairy ones you see in the grocery store. Young coconuts are six to nine months old. A fully ripened coconut takes 12 months to mature. These are the ones sold in grocery stores. The water in the young coconut is generally much sweeter and better tasting. The water in mature coconuts is often bland and sometimes even slightly sour.

Coconut water from mature coconuts

Mature coconuts are not usually used for drinking but are harvested for the thick layer of meat inside to produce coconut oil. As the popularity of coconut has grown, others have jumped on the bandwagon and a variety of coconut water from mature coconuts has appeared on the market.

Mature coconut water is far less expensive than young coconut water. Mature coconut water is generally a waste product in the processing of mature coconuts for coconut meat and oil. Instead of throwing away the water they are capturing it and packaging it as coconut water. There is nothing wrong with this process, except the quality and taste suffers.

The natural taste of coconut water is lost by adding sugar and transformation processes

In the beverage industry it is important to standardize the taste. Customers expect a brand of orange juice, for example, to taste the same regardless of when it is purchased. This doesn’t happen in nature. The taste can vary from season to season depending on a variety of factors.

The taste of coconut water can vary depending on sugar concentration which is measured on the brix scale. Beverage Producers can add sugar to their product to reach the official brix value. Some brands will also add in artificial flavours and additives to make each batch identical in flavour and sweetness. The brix value of coconut water is 5 to 6.5. The brix value for mature coconut water is 3. When mature coconut water is packaged, sugar is added to increase its brix value and make it taste more like young coconut water. But you would never know it from the label as it only state: 100% pure coconut water.  

Coconut water is highly perishable. Once the coconut is opened and the water extracted, it begins to ferment and the taste and smell rapidly changes, however, even short-time pasteurization destroys some of the coconut water’s nutrients and much of its flavour.

Coconut water made from concentrate and powder

Coconut water from mature coconuts has been boiled down into thick syrup. This concentrate then will be reconstituted and sold as “100% natural coconut water.”

To make matters even worse, you can buy powdered coconut water. Simply mix the powder with water and presto you have coconut water.

Powdered coconut water as well as coconut water concentrate reconstituted with tap water which contains chlorine and fluoride. In order to keep the same light colour of coconut water the manufacturers must add to coconut water sodium metabisulphite (E223), a food grade chemical compound that acts as preservative and bleaching agent.

What happens to the coconut water when it is subjected to high heat pasteurization, boiled down into a syrup, or transformed into a powder? Some of the heat sensitive nutrients are lost that’s for sure. The taste is also affected if compared with fresh coconut water from young green coconuts.

There is pink coloured coconut water – how coconut water goes pink? Unpasteurised coconut water naturally contains antioxidants such as polyphenols. If polyphenols interact with light, then coconut water goes pink because of polyphenols oxidation.
