For more than 4,000 years, coconut water has been revered as a natural source of nutrition, wellness, beauty and hydration. Found throughout tropic and subtropic areas around the world, the coconut is known for its great versatility as seen in the many domestic, commercial, and industrial uses of its different parts. Coconuts which are part of the daily diet of many people are different from any other fruits because they contain a large quantity of "water" and when immature they are known as tender-nuts or jelly-nuts and may be harvested for their juice.
Suggested Use: Mix 1 tablespoon with water, juice, yogurt, or add to your favorite smoothie. One pound of our Organic Freeze Dried Coconut Water Powder contains about 32 servings which is equivalent to the coconut water from 32 fresh young coconuts. One rounded tablespoon (14 g) is equivalent to drinking all of the coconut water (12 oz) contained in an average sized young coconut.
Botanical Source: Cocos nucifera

Ingredients: Organic Freeze Dried Coconut Water powder and Organic non-GMO tapioca maltodextrin derived from yuca root*.
*This product contains a small amount of tapioca maltodextrin, which is a starch made from organically grown non-GMO yuca root (cassava root). This starch acts as a drying agent and is necessary to keep this powder from clumping into hard chunks or one solid brick.
