Product Spotlight: Harmless Harvest Coconut Water!

People's Grocery

 

With the rising temperatures, it's important to stay hydrated. To help you out, we've added a whole bunch of different flavors of coconut water! Coconut water is high in electrolytes, which make it the perfect drink after a workout or even just a long day out in the heat. Coconut water is great on it's own or mixed into smoothies or even iced coffee or iced yerba maté!

While we have coconut water from many different companies, one of our newest has quickly become a staff favorite. Harmless Harvest 100% Raw Coconut Water is absolutely delicious! Founded in 2009 on the idea of bringing a wholesome product to the market with ecological and conscious practices. They're not only certified organic, but they're also in the process of becoming Fair Trade Certified through Fair For Life! Here's a nifty diagram that shows their business model:

 

Not only does Harmless Harvest have a great business model but they have a great product, as well. Check our their Acclaims page to see the praise given by Food & Wine, Bon Appetite, TIME, FitSugar, Whole Foods and many more! 

If you come into the store, there's one thing that could throw you off. Your coconut water might be pink! What does this even mean!?!?! Well, here's what Harmless Harvest has to say about it: 

Those familiar with whole coconuts know that a pink hue can be a sign of oxidation and spoilage. All of our coconut water is completely clear when bottled. After bottling, the color simply signals antioxidants interacting with light. Variation is (more than) normal in nature, but everyone thought we were crazy to put pink bottles on the shelf. Rather than change the product, we decided to educate people and trust that they would understand. We hope that we’re paving the way in acceptance of variability and reconnections with the truth that nature comes in many colors.
