What is coconut water?

Elevate hydration with quick Vita Coco add-in. | PAID CONTENT

DENVER — It’s just what you would think…it’s the clear liquid inside a young coconut (7 months old or so) and is commonly used in drinking products like Vita Coco Coconut Water.  The liquid inside brown, more mature coconuts is considered coconut milk.

Coconut water is packed with nutrients and is low in calories.  One cup of coconut water contains about 46 calories, approximately 3 grams of fiber, 11 to 12 grams of natural sugar, and plant compounds and electrolytes such as potassium, sodium, magnesium, and phosphorus
