Co­conut Wa­ter

Daily Mirror (Sri Lanka) - - THIS & THAT -

The de­mand for pure co­conut wa­ter with­out any preser­va­tives has been in the pipe­line for a while with ex­ten­sive tri­als. The prod­uct was launched in 2018 and dis­trib­uted to lead­ing con­sumer out­lets such as Cargills & Ar­pico Su­per Stores.

Low in calo­ries, nat­u­rally free of fat and choles­terol, more potas­sium than four ba­nanas, and su­per hy­drat­ing -- th­ese are just a few of the many ben­e­fits as­cribed co­conut wa­ter.

Dubbed “Mother Na­ture’s sports drink” by mar­keters, the de­mand is sky­rock­et­ing, pro­pelled by celebrity and athlete en­dorse­ments and prom­ises to hy­drate the body and help with a whole host of con­di­tions, from hang­overs to can­cer and kid­ney stones.
