Coconut Water

BuckeyeGal04 BuckeyeGal04
I've been hearing that coconut water is a great source for potassium and has electrolytes. I've seen that the price can vary. It seems that if it's truly coconut water in its true form, they should be different. Does anyone know if all brands are not all alike?

I love coconut water. The main differences between brands:

• Some add sugar (sometimes a lot, sometimes not much). Others don't add any.
• Some include young coconut pulp. Others are pulp-free.
• Some come in fancy packaging. These tend to be overpriced. Others come in cheap packaging, sometimes clearly intended for other countries.

Otherwise, they should all be about the same. I usually drink the cheaper ones (typically from Thailand) with pulp but no sugar (or hopefully not much if there is some).

I must have had the one without sugar because it didn't taste so good. It actually almost tasted dry, if that makes sense.

I do love the heck out of coconuts and could eat them raw all day. I wonder if that's got the same effect to it.

I love coconut water but it's too expensive for me to justify the cost. I eat coconut oil on a regular basis though, which haas more nutritional bang for the buck.

It is expensive, which is why I only purchase it when it is on sale. Also, I save it for times that I really do feel dehydrated, not just wanting something to drink.

I use coconut water in baking, as it adds nutrients and a little extra something, but for the vitamin quality I also prefer the oil, it can be used in cooking, as a spread, makes a great lube, and moisturizer. Really is a wonder product.

We use a lot of coconut based products in our house - oil, flour, peanut butter! It is better for you!

Well that's a brilliant idea to use it as a liquid in baked goods!

I was at Costco yesterday and was happy to see that they have a cases of the 11.2 oz cartons. Unit cost is $1.31, which I thought was pretty good.

I'd recommend getting a small bottle of coconut water first to see if you like it. I love coconuts so I thought that I would try it and I got a small bottle...I hated it. I had a customer come into work and see the bottle on the counter and she asked if I liked it and I said no why? She said she didn't like it either but had bought an entire case at Costco and was now stuck with it lol. I think it's an accquired taste.

I love coconut water. The ones without any additives or sweeteners are more healthy but can depending on the brand, taste horrible. So I get ones with natural sweeteners like agave to balance it out.
Also try coconut milk it is amazing tastes lovely good for recipes and amazing if you also happen to be lactose intolerant.
This is the best kind of coconut milk link
I'm sorry I forgot the brand name of my preferred coconut water but when I remember it I'll get back to you.

I have yet to get the hang of coconut water. Sometimes it's just too sweet. I second coconut milk though. I'm lactose intolerant and I like it so much better than cow milk!
