Nuts for Coconuts!
by ashley.eaton, July 20, 2010 |

Loaded with protein, calcium, phosphate, magnesium, potassium and vitamin C. We are going nuts for coconuts all over the store! Coconut milk, coconut milk yogurt, coconut milk ice cream coconut creamers and of course fresh, young coconuts and the prized electrolyte-balancing coconut water they provide.

For an all-natural, thirst-quenching experience, there’s no one thing you can say about O.N.E. Coconut Water. It just has too much going for it! O.N.E. – which stands for One Natural Experience – is prized among many of its consumers for its energizing and electrolyte replenishing benefits. Coconut water is rich in calcium, phosphate, magnesium, sodium and it even has more potassium than its tropical brother the banana. In fact, coconut water was used in World War II and the War in Vietnam as an intravenous solution for wounded soldiers on the battlefield. Talk about staying in the game, huh? It’s no wonder why all-natural athletes chose to drink O.N.E. Coconut Water over competing sports drinks.

Not to be mistaken with coconut milk, coconut nectar, and definitely not a coconut cream pie, coconut water is the liquid inside young green coconuts. It possesses a mildly sweet taste. O.N.E. 100% Coconut Water contains only 60 calories a serving and absolutely no chemicals, preservatives, GMO’s, added sugars or fat.

O.N.E. Active is available as well in its single serving boxes featuring the flavors of lemon-lime, grape berry, and cranberry grapefruit for 40 calories a drink. To learn more about O.N.E. Coconut Water, visit its website – which provides nutritional information, fun historical facts, and even recipes – at

Here’s a little-known factoid: Did you know you can buy coconut water at McDonald’s in Brazil? That’s right. Catering towards South American demand, the fast-food chain known as a pioneer of supersized soda cups is now serving one of the purest beverages born of the earth. How refreshing is that?
