WHERE DO YOUR COCONUTS COME FROM?

ZICO is continuously searching the world for the best-tasting and most nutritious coconuts. There’s no question that coconuts from different regions offer different taste characteristics and different nutritional profiles due to soil and climate conditions. Therefore, we must constantly adapt and work toward providing the most fresh-tasting coconuts available.

Currently, all of the ZICO  330ml and 1 L Original products source from Thailand. Thai coconuts are also those most commonly found fresh in grocery produce sections, so this allows ZICO to offer consumers the same taste as the freshest available coconuts on the market.

The ZICO  414ml products contain Indonesian and Filipino coconuts specifically chosen and blended for sports recovery, as they contain sodium levels comparable to traditional sports drinks.

WHAT ARE THE HEALTH BENEFITS OF THE BOTTLE (AND IS IT DIFFERENT THAN THE CARTON?)

Compared to the carton, ZICO in the bottle has two primary nutritional differences, both of which help make the ZICO bottle ideal for on-the-go, active- lifestyle hydration. They are:

+ Calories: Due to our choice of coconut water utilized for the bottles, the bottle has fewer calories per ml than the carton

+ Sodium: The bottle contains 180 mg of sodium for a 14 oz serving (12.8 mg/oz) compared to 54 mg of sodium in the 11.2 oz carton. Sodium plays a critical role in promoting optimal rehydration during prolonged exercise by preventing muscle cramps or weakness and aiding in fluid retention. Sodium is also known to stimulate the thirst mechanism, further aiding in the prevention of dehydration

WHAT DOES “FROM CONCENTRATE” MEAN?

“From concentrate” simply means that the coconut water has had most of the water removed during the production process so that it could be more easily transported and stored, and then has had water added back into it later in the production process to bring it back to the same nutritional profile as the original coconut water. Removing water and then adding it back in does nothing to reduce the benefits of the coconut water.

WHERE DOES THE CONCENTRATE COME FROM?

Similar to ZICO’s carton product, ZICO concentrate is produced by hand-harvesting the most delicious and nutritious coconuts from around the world. For ZICO in the bottle, we’ve selected a unique blend of coconut waters from Indonesia and the Philippines to achieve a unique, consistent taste, and an even better nutritional profile and lower calorie count. By sourcing the best coconuts from around the world, ZICO helps to ensure greater quality and flexibility throughout the supply chain.

WHAT IS THE BOTTLE MADE OF?

The ZICO bottle is HDPE, which stands for High Density Polyethylene.  The biggest use of the HDPE package is milk bottles, but HDPE is also used for many other beverages and liquid products as well. ZICO’s bottles are fully recyclable and BPA free.
