Natural coconut water is the water inside a coconut. It is naturally filtered for nine months through the dense fibers of the coconut creating a nutritious, pure and refreshing isotonic beverage. Coconut water is naturally sterile and has five essential electrolytes, more potassium than a banana, no added sugars, no fat, no cholesterol and no preservatives. It is excellent for replacing lost electrolytes from exercise and illness. It can be incorporated in many beverage applications and is regarded as a natural sports drink. For more information visit:

It is important to distinguish coconut water from coconut cream or milk.  Coconut cream is a smooth, thick liquid made from the meat of fresh coconuts. To make coconut cream, grated coconut meat is pressed to release the white liquid cream.  The principle fatty acid in coconut cream is lauric acid, which is the same fat found in abundance in mother's milk and is known to promote normal brain development and contribute to healthy bones.  It can enhance the aroma and taste of the dishes.  Coconut cream can be widely used in curries, desserts and cakes.  iTi supplies coconut cream both with and without stabilizers.
