We keep you informed — transparency at a glance

Dr. Antonio Martins is now labelling all packaging with the NUTRI-SCORE logo

Coconut juice / coconut water is the only fruit juice to make it into the green “B” segment of the NUTRI-SCORE nutrition traffic light system introduced by Federal Minister for Food and Agriculture Julia Klöckner.

The tropical thirst quencher is fat-free and contains minerals that the body needs, such as magnesium and calcium — 250 millilitres even contain more potassium than a banana. With only 4.6 grams of fruit sugar and between 11 and 19 calories per 100 millilitres, it has the fewest calories and lowest sugar content of all fruit juices.  


To provide you with transparent information about these positive nutritional properties, as of now we are labelling all packaging with the NUTRI-SCORE logo. “In addition to the FAIRTRADE logo, the NUTRI-SCORE is an additional positive, visible added value for customers who buy organic, conscientiously make purchases and value sustainability topics like health and fair trade”, says Coco-boss Stefan Reiss, who has managed the company based in Nuremberg for over 15 years. Both our Dr. Antonio Martins coconut milk for drinking and our version for cooking have a fat content of just 9 per cent, achieving a clear green on the NUTRI-SCORE traffic light that is now present on the front of the packaging.

Sustainable relationships with the harvest partners in Brazil and Sri Lanka and focus on FAIRTRADE

Dr. Antonio Martins stands for coconut juice in organic and premium quality.

With our founding history around the Brazilian pediatrician and namesake of our brand Dr. Antonio Martins, we have stood for the highest coconut juice standards since the beginning. Also officially for fair trade since 2019.

Since our foundation, we have successfully built long and sustainable partnerships, including in Brazil and Sri Lanka. The young coconuts for the premium product brand grow here in organically certified coconut gardens. The coconuts for the coconut water made from green, ripe nuts are also harvested in Sri Lanka in organic quality – but from somewhat larger plantations exclusively by local harvest specialists.

In order to set an example here for good working conditions, fair wages and good health care for the workers and their families, our coconut water made from green, ripe nuts has been officially ©FAIRTRADE certified since January 2019.

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.



fluid of life

Water of life – this is what the juice of the young coconut is known as where it has been drunk for millennia, like orange juice is to us. People in the tropics are very lucky, because coconut juice is much more than just any old fruit juice – its extensive contribution to a healthy diet has been handed down for generations …

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) has examined coconut juice in more detail in several independent studies
(> Download coconut juice studies). It came to the conclusion that coconut juice is the ideal natural thirst-quencher. “What could be better than a natural beverage product with the delicate aroma, taste, drinking characteristics and nutritional value of pure, fresh, tender coconut water, plus all the functional characteristics …?” And they are right (>original document).

Why is coconut juice so special? Let’s take a closer look at why nature invented coconut juice and what it does with it …
Coconuts ripen on coconut palms. Always in the tropics and always close to the equator. Your holiday snaps of palm-lined beaches are wonderful. But what you can’t see is that the micro-climate there is anything but life-sustaining. Sandy ground, little water, lots of sun and high temperatures. When a coconut is ripe and falls from the palms, it often rolls into the sea. Sometimes months go by before it reaches land again. And when it does it is greeted by the same heat and drought.

As they have evolved over the millennia, coconut palms have found a way to give their “children” everything they need to take their first steps in life all by themselves. Each coconut contains all of the energy and water it needs to be able to start growing, even after month in agressive salty water.

The big difference from the fruits of other plants is the water. Coconuts contain liquid water. And this coconut juice is uniquely valuable. Naturally pure, with a mineral balance that is exactly the same as your body. Fat-free, low in calories and rich in vitamins and minerals.

This “fluid of life” gives the coconut seedling everything it needs to grow. And coconut juice gives you everything a drink should have if a healthy diet is important to you.

But remember to consider quality. Dr Antonio Martins consists of the juice of young organic coconuts. This makes the coconut juice really valuable and tasty.

Because there are sometimes doctors in advertising who are purely fictional, we would like to tell you who our Dr Martins actually is. He really does exist …

The story of coco is closely linked to the life of Dr Antonio Martins. He was born in Goiania, Brazil, so he grew up with coconut juice. You could say he has been familiar with the many beneficial properties of young coconut juice as a natural thirst-quencher from an early age. He later worked in many countries around the world as an internationally renowned specialist in sports medicine, nutritional medicine and paediatrics. He finally moved to Austria in 1981. At his practise in Vienna, mothers frequently came to him with the question: “What is the best drink for our child?”

Dr Antonio Martins’ answer :coconut juice. The only problem was, you could not buy coconut juice in Europe because coconut palms cannot grow here.

Dr Antonio Martins simply could not rest. It had to be possible to bring coconut juice to Europe as a drink. But not just any kind. Only the best possible quality. Produced as an organic product as sustainably as possible. A very simple idea, really. And yet so difficult to achieve …

Many years were spent looking for small farmers, certifying coconut plantations as organic and developing a process that gets the delicate coconut juice from the fresh, young coconut into bottles and packaging in such a way that it retains both its value and its flavour. This is not so easy if you want the coconut juice from young coconuts to be processed as little as possible and do not want to use any preservatives or other chemicals.

In 2002 it was finally accomplished. That is how long original Dr Antonio Martins’ coco has existed. And how long many thousands of satisfied people all over the world have been saying, “For me, coco is the best coconut juice ever”.

Thank you for always believing in your idea, Dr Antonio Martins. Now we can drink coconut juice that tastes like it is fresh from the nut. So easy to buy from the shop around the corner.

Dr Antonio Martins story Geschichte

new: coco juice apricot

coco mixed with organic fruit juice has always been especially delicious. And now along come a few apricots to turn everything on its head …

For a long time, we have been considering which fruits we could mix with coco organic coconut juice next. Not only should it taste good, it should also have a purpose. Vitamin A is a good idea, because Mother Nature somehow forgot about it for coconut juice. So, what contains a lot of natural vitamin A? Exactly – apricots. And because we wanted the best for coco, we went to the Mediterranean to buy them.

What can you say? coco with apricots tastes fantastic. The organic apricots add a refreshing element that works perfectly with the delicate coconut taste.

You have to try coco juice with apricots soon. It is already everyone’s favourite.
