About this report

Coconut water has a massive advantage as an ingredient - it connects to consumers' desire for "naturality" - the biggest trend in the food and beverage business, worldwide.

Coconut water meets consumers' expectations for products that are "free-from" artificial colours, preservatives or additives and free-from any allergens.

Coconut water is also "naturally functional": it naturally has 15 times the amount of potassium found in the equivalent volume of most sports drinks. As well as being isotonic and naturally sweet, coconut water is low in calories - with only 19-24 calories per 100ml, compared to 43 calories per 100ml for orange juice.

Rule number one in the current market is at the root of coconut's success: the message that a food or food ingredient has a natural and intrinsic health benefit is one of the most persuasive that people can hear.
