Coconut juice – in Pink
a true treasure of nature
Why does pure coconut juice often turn pink? And can you still drink it without worry?
Within a few days of harvesting, the juice of young coconuts changes colour to a delicate pink. That’s because naturally contained enzymes become active within it. In technical terms the process is oxidisation and the enzyme is phenolase. The enzyme content is particularly high in young coconuts – therefore the pink colouration is present exclusively in the precious juice of young coconuts.
This chic colour is not a defect but in fact actually a quality feature.
It’s a clear indication that the juice has been treated and processed as gently as possible.
And while we’re on the subject of young coconuts: Since February 2018, Dr. Antonio Martins coconut juice is available in new, practical PET bottles – in sparkling quality, thanks to COCO – with a passion fruit flavour.
And guess what the special feature of our first limited edition is? It’s pink.
So: Enjoy a true treasure of nature – especially when it’s pink.
