The young, green, fresh coconuts for drinking are harvested a few months earlier than the more commonly known brown and "hairy" coconuts. The young coconut water inside is a clear and slightly sweet liquid surrounded by a soft, thin layer of coconut flesh. In this stage of growth, the nutritional value of the coconut water is very high making it very valuable for the body. It is also isotonic, which means that the ratio of nutrients to liquid is similar to that of human blood resulting in excellent bioavailability. Last but not least, young coconut water is a low-fat and low-sugar alternative to sugary soft drinks and high-calorie beverages.
How do you get to the water in the young coconut?
A green coconut contains between 250 and 350 ml of coconut water. Because the shell is not yet hard at this point, it can easily be punctured using a coconut opener. Then the coconut water can be drunk with a straw.
In order to obtain all the liquid from the fruit, two holes should be made in the shell with the coconut opener. While the coconut water flows through one hole, the other prevents the formation of a vacuum.
