What do you guys think of this product?

Coco Hydro Instant Coconut Water

I bought some and it tastes okay but I wanted to get everyone else's thoughts on it.

Thanks.

Okay, I was wrong, the package does say dextrose and sea salt. It doesn't seem to bad but I don't know exactly how good of deal it is since I seem to want to put a lot in to make the water as flavorful. Right now I am middle of the road as to whether I would recommend this product or not.

might be good for travel, but not sure about the tapioca.

Upvotes and answer marks appreciated. :-) Good luck with the detective work. Honestly, it doesn't sound like a bad food product overall.

I agree, and I do, but sometimes that is not too convenient. I'm all about getting the real thing for sure.

Wow, on the package I picked up at the store it just says, "evaporated coconut water". I did not see any of that other crap. I'll have ot investigate further. Thanks for your response.

I would just buy a fresh young coconut. I don't like to trust things that come in a package.

Ingredients: organic evaporated coconut water, tapioca dextrose (as a processing aid), Bali sea salt, ascorbic acid (vitamin C), Ionic trace minerals (may or may not contain potassium citrate, magnesium citrate, calcium ascrobate, potassium phosphate manganese sulfate, chloride)

That's definitely not the worst list of ingredients I've seen. You may want to watch out for tapioca dextrose if you are especially sensitive to cassava / yucca, but at least it's not maltodextrose (wheat).

Seems like a slightly less expensive way to get mostly benign coconut water - sugar is added, but it seems like not much (8g) per serving.
