Vita Coco Coconut Water (1L) £2.32 at Waitrose

Found 14th Feb 2013
Normally 3.49 for 1L.

Both the normal version and the pineapple version are on sale. Flying off the shelves in my local waitrose.

You can get cheaper brands but they are bulked up with water, sugar and sometimes contain preservatives. The grace brand at asda is normally cheap compared to full price coco vita, as are thai brands from asian supermarkets.

If you miss drinking these fresh from tropical countries this is a nice way to enjoy it.

I bought a can of the cheaper stuff from a Chinese supermarket (74p) & really enjoyed it. I checked the ingredients on the can,no added sugar or other such nasties. Have ordered 12 cans for under £5 from Amazon. I suppose Amazon keeps the scum out of Waitrose.


I've had issues and my Doctor recommended it!
and I quote
Coconut water is composed of many naturally occurring bioactive enzymes such as acid phosphatase, catalase, dehydrogenase, diastase, peroxidase, RNA-polymerases etc. In effect, these enzymes help in the digestion and metabolism.

Coconut water has been generally offered to patients with diarrhea in many tropic regions to replace the fluid loss from the gastrointestinal tract and reduce the need for intravenous therapy. The osmolarity of tender coconut water is slightly greater than that of WHO recommended ORS (Oral Rehydration Therapy) osmolarity. Presence of other biological constituents like amino acids, enzymes, minerals, and fatty acids may account for this higher osmolarity. However, unlike WHO-ORS, its water is very low in sodium and chlorides, but rich in sugars and amino acids. This well-balanced fluid composition with much-needed calories would be an ideal drink than any other brand of soft drink beverages in dehydration conditions.
