Coconut is becoming an ultimate crowd favorite within the ketogenic diet and vegan community.

Which Parts are Best to Eat and Avoid?

What? There are parts of the coconut that isn’t good for you? Is that even possible?

It seems like a shock, but there’s an explanation for everything.

The coconut fruit comes from a tree nut. It is a given that it’s enormous. Nonetheless, it belongs to the nut family. Do you know anyone who has a tree nut allergy? If so, never give them food or drinks that have this ingredient. It can set off a person’s reaction.

Now, it does seem kind of rare for anyone to have a proven allergic reaction to it. Still, it does not hurt to be cautious.

High Sugar in Coco Water?

The truth is, the variation you need to avoid are the ones that are bottled up or in carton boxes. Most of these have added sugar.

Fresh ones are the most suitable choices because they are new, refined sugar-free, and an excellent electrolyte source!
