plentiful stock in Birmingham Perry Barr branch

Plenty in Southend.

Plenty in Salford Precinct too

I wonder what used to happen to all this coconut water? Probably went down the drain until some bright spark thought lets package it and sell it to the west. I wonder if it was the same bloke/woman who managed to make prosecco popular after languishing for decades. Come to think of it they both have a similar lack of flavour!

Stick a bounty under your tap

Isn't this stuff supposed to be amazing for hangovers?

I don't know what happens in industrial size processing plants, but those who use coconut regularly, usually drinks the water as a little treat. My mother (in Kerala, India - Kerala means "land of coconuts" in local language) cooks with coconuts every single day of the week, and each coconut will give you a small cup of coconut water - depending on the size and how green/brown the coconut is - the younger the coconut the more coconut water usually, and the riper / drier, less coconut water, but on the other hand it would much much sweeter. She has an unlimited supply of coconuts as her property has some 70 or so coconut trees, approximate yield between 2 to 3000 coconuts a year.

Ask me anything about coconuts if you like!

Pretty negligble. Coconut water is mostly electrolyte salts (potassium / sodium etc) and water.

What do you mean what happened to all this coconut water? People drink it you idiot! Coconuts are only harvested based on demand. Nothing goes 'down the drain'.

I am pretty sure that all the coconuts that used to be harvested did not have a market for all the water that was produced as a by product. As it has laxative and diuretic properties I would assume that the local population where this is produced would have serious problems if all that came from coconut production was consumed locally.As for being called an idiot for posing a reasonable thought tells me a lot about yourself, which I am not about to express here.

Good price Heat added!!

I had a stomach pain for years (coeliac disease and IBS). From about 2 years every day I drink glass of coconut water. All bad symptoms has gone. I don`t need to see my GP again and again. Thanks to coconut water

Nature's sports drink! A much wiser choice than your average 'sports' drink which is full of sugars, sweeteners and other crap.

Thank you for the info. My thought earlier was that coconut processing in the past was less industrialised process and the main products would have been the flesh (copra) and fibre. I assume that apart from what was used locally ( coco water)went to waste. Now that conglomerates are involved- coca cola/pepsico - I guess they will find a market for all of the coconut.

LOL. You do realise that people have been consuming coconuts and coconut water for hundreds and hundreds of years and that the "local population" has never had any serious problems? It's only a diuretic / laxative if you drink tons of it. For example, the equivalent of 4 or 5 coconuts a day.

I realise that, I did not think that people had only just started consuming coconut water! What I was getting at is that all this coconut water that is now consumed around the western world could/ would not have been able to be consumed 'locally', therefore may well have gone to waste till the idea of selling/marketing and packaging it for sale abroad.

^ As I've said previously, they've just increased production to meet Western demand.
