FOCO is at some pains to present its coconut water as a good, healthy, natural product. The product page displays some of its promises: “All Natural,” “Never From Concentrate,” “Single Source,” No Preservatives,” “No Sugar Added,” “Cholesterol & Fat Free.”
This seems like just the thing for today’s consumers: A drink associated with health and exercise, coming from sunny, warm places where people eat and drink what grows naturally. It’s got to be good for you—right? We’re not sure. Are companies that produce coconut water being entirely honest about the ingredients and the health benefits of this drink? We’re investigating their claims.
