Why is the coconut water pink?
This is a totally natural process that occurs because of the polyphenols and antioxidants naturally present in “Nam Hom” coconut water. Because Copra’s Coconut Water is 100% pure, not from concentrate, and as close to cracking the coconut as you can get, the composition of antioxidants will differ by coconut. So the shade of pink, sweetness and aroma may differ by bottle. Taste the differences!
