Coconut Water

What is Coconut Water?

Coconut Water is not the same as Coconut Milk. Coconut water is the liquid inside a coconut. It develops naturally inside the coconut. Coconut water is also sometimes referred to as Coconut Juice and both names mean the same thing - (the fresh liquid from the coconut). Coconut Water looks like clear water with a slight cloudy appearance. The best coconut water should be from young green coconuts, as this is when the liquid inside the coconut is most nutritious.

Coconut Water has many health benefits. Please click on Coconut Water Facts to educate yourself about this amazing natural product.

Coconut Milk is a manufactured product made from the coconut meat (the white flesh of the coconut). It is prepared by mixing water with grated coconut meat, squeezing and extracting the pulp, leaving only the liquid. Coconut milk looks like cow's milk (white in colour). You can use coconut milk as a replacement for regular cow's milk in a variety of beverages and dishes.
