Nice Find Zico Coconut Water

I got some of this from the Indian store today all natural and it has a whopping 620 mg of potassium in it and even has 40 mg of calcium, it also has magnesium and sodium and not very high in calories 60 kcal. Its a refreshing drink and pretty good for you, I have had it fresh from the Fruit in India, amazing we went to the village and my hubby's cousin climbed a tree got one and sliced it no kidding!
If you or anyone you know has low potassium this is a great drink for them. I think hospital kitchens should stock it.


  1. Mmmmmmmmmmm-lucky you!!
    I've learnt all the Marathi dishes from my MIL-like 'vangi bhat'(Brinjal pulav), 'sabudhana kichidi'(tapioca pearls uppma),and lots more. It's always fun to try out new dishes and learn to make it too :)

  2. We used to give packaged coconut water to post-surgery patients starting on clear fluids. I think the brand name was 'Cocojal' :)

  3. I keep hearing how delicious this is. I haven't tried it yet!

  4. Sweta: thats cool oh thats brijal pulav sounds good but it on your blog lol
    Reeni its very nice

  5. I am intrigued by coconut water and bought a sample to try. I'm hoping I can get a nice long bike ride this weekend to test it out. Is there any research on it out there, comparing it to conventional electrolyte-replacement drinks? I was thinking this would be a great thesis topic? Can't wait to try it!

  6. kristen: let us know how it goes with the coconut water good idea for a post hint hint!
