LIVING COCONUT YOGURT
Two young, Thai coconuts per jar. For a one-of-a-kind raw, fermented, non-dairy, sensationally smooth coconut yogurt. Bursting with flavor and over 100 billion probiotics.
Stone-ground, tender Nam Hom coconuts exclusively from Thailand mingle with fresh pressed fruit juice for a decadently healthy, plant-based, guilt-free pleasure. Lightly sweet with only 3g of sugar on average per serving—and two servings per jar— it’s ready-to-eat as a silkier-than-silk treat, a transportive breakfast, or pair with sweet and savory ingredients, alike.
COCOYO is made with the meat of young coconuts. The coconut pulp is fermented using kefir cultures which transform the sweet coconut meat into a tangy, low-sugar, probiotic-rich food that helps replenish the gut and support healthy digestion.
COCOYO is a fermented product so it may taste a little tart. It’s fluffy and rich, and may also feel slightly effervescent on the tongue.
A serving size of COCOYO is 1⁄2 cup (4 fl oz). Each serving contains 100 billion CFU per 4 fl oz at time of packaging.
Everyone has a unique system, therefore we suggest listening to your body when trying to determine the appropriate amount for you. However, if you are a first-time consumer, it is best to slowly introduce COCOYO to your system. Start with 1 tablespoon and gradually increase to 1⁄2 cup (4 fl oz) or more per day based on your body’s response. Introducing such powerful probiotics into your system may have a cleansing effect. People have reported feeling bloated and churning in their gut. This is a good thing! COCOYO can be consumed before, during, or after meals.
COCOYO should ALWAYS be kept in a refrigerator (33-37 F°) and stored upright.
For best quality, we advise consuming our product either on or before the date printed on top of the lid.
For best quality, we recommend consuming COCOYO within three days of opening and before the ‘Best By’ date (located on top of the lid). Remember to always store upright in the refrigerator when not consuming.
COCOYO is a live, raw, fermented product. For this reason, we do not recommend freezing it for too long. We have run tests and learned the probiotics to survive for up to a couple weeks with freezing. However, if you would like to freeze COCOYO, we recommend putting it in a larger plastic container first. Reason being that the coconut water will expand when frozen and we wouldn’t want it to break the glass COCOYO jar in the freezer. Please know that the texture of COCOYO may change after freezing. If this happens, you can stir the COCOYO to redistribute the elements before consuming it.
The coconuts used to craft COCOYO are sourced from Southeast Asia.
Since 2016, we have handcrafted COCOYO in sunny Los Angeles, California.
COCOYO can be enjoyed by everyone. For ages under ten years old, we recommend they consume a smaller serving size.
We have heard from many mothers who continue to consume COCOYO during pregnancy and while breastfeeding. However, if you are unsure of introducing something new to your system during this time, we recommend consulting with your healthcare professional due to the delicate nature of pregnancy and breastfeeding.
There is no right or wrong time to consume COCOYO. Many of our consumers tell us that they enjoy cocoyo in the morning for breakfast with a little bit of fruit. Others have made vegan desserts with it. Find some recipes here.
We’re happy to share that there’s no added sugar or artificial sweetener in COCOYO.
We add a little Stevia to our COCOYO offerings because we find it enhances their flavors.
Because COCOYO is a live product that continues to ferment after being packaged, the volumetric amount will vary from jar to jar. Depending on temperature conditions and atmosphere during transport, some jars will be fuller than others. Additionally, this may affect the texture and consistency of COCOYO. Know that the amount of probiotics and the healthy properties of COCOYO are present regardless of the volumetric amount texture.
People who are allergic to coconut should not consume COCOYO. Beyond that, COCOYO is dairy-free, gluten-free, soy-free, low in sugar, and low-calorie.
The probiotic blend in COCOYO is proprietary. However, the dominant probiotics are Lactobacillus, Lactocuccus, and Leuconostoc strains. The proprietary probiotic blend equals 100 billion CFU per 4 fl oz at time of packaging.
The bacteria in pill or powdered probiotics are in a dormant state – meaning they are hibernating. They are not dead, but they are not active. Their numbers are reported “At Time of Manufacture.” Many people question how many actually survive to thrive and populate the gut. The probiotics in COCOYO are live at the time of consumption and are swimming in a food matrix that supports them.
COCOYO contains potassium, magnesium, manganese, and MCTs – all good “brain nutrients.”
COCOYO is available in select markets across the United States. Use our Store Locator to find the nearest retailer.
We are unable to offer direct sales at this time. COCOYO is not available for mail-order as it is much too perishable to send without refrigeration.
