Continuing our innovations in coconut water, iTi Tropicals is pleased to introduce a new experimental coconut product:

  • Caramelized coconut water concentrate 75 brix, with a toasted, savory taste

We believe customers are interested in this product because...

This exciting new product is available on a trial basis so we do not have large commercial quantities available.  We offer this products so researchers can work with them, experience their unique properties, conduct pilot tests and trials, etc.  We will continue to pursue commercial levels of production based on a variety of factors, especially customer demand.

In business since 1988, iTi is a leader in conventional & organic coconut water for the North American ingredients market.  

Natural coconut water is the water inside a coconut. It is naturally filtered for nine months within the coconut, creating a nutritious, pure and refreshing isotonic beverage.  Coconut water 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 by some as a natural sports drink.

It is important to distinguish coconut water from coconut cream or milk.  Coconut cream is a smooth, thick liquid made from the pressed meat of fresh coconuts. To make coconut cream, grated coconut meat is pressed to release a white liquid cream.  A major fatty acid in coconut cream is lauric acidwhich is also found in mother's milk.  It is thought to help promote brain development and contribute to healthy bones.  It enhances aroma, taste and mouth-feel.  Coconut cream is also widely used in curries, desserts and cakes.  

In addition to above, iTi offers a wide range of coconut products including Organic Virgin Coconut oil, Organic and Conventional Coconut Cream, Organic and Conventional Coconut Water Concentrate and Acidified Coconut Water Concentrate.
