What is Coconut Kefir?
Coconut Kefir is a probiotic beverage made from young, raw coconut water with 15-30 billion live CFU’s (colony forming units) of beneficial, probiotic bacteria per serving. It is 100% vegan and dairy free.
How do you make CocoKefir?
GT’s CocoKefir starts with fresh young coconuts that we crack by hand in Los Angeles. The raw coconut water is delicately fermented in small batches using “kefir” probiotics which transform the sweet water into a tangy low-sugar probiotic rich beverage that helps replenish the gut and support healthy digestion. CocoKefir is raw and truly alive which is why we call it a “Living Coconut Water”.
Is there sugar added?
We’re happy to share that there’s no added sugar or artificial sweeteners.
Who can benefit from drinking CocoKefir?
Everyone can benefit from the probiotics and nutrition in CocoKefir, but people who seek LIVE probiotics and wish to avoid dairy, gluten, soy and high sugar levels in particular will find CocoKefir a wonderful probiotic solution.
I drank a full serving the first time I drank CocoKefir. My stomach felt bloated and I felt some churning in my gut.
This is a good thing! It means it is working! Start out with a tablespoon and work your way up to a 1⁄4 cup or full 1⁄2 cup serving (for those customers who seek a more therapeutic serving) over a week or two.
How many CocoKefir flavors do you currently offer?
Our CocoKefir can be enjoyed in three different varieties – Pure, Cacao and Matcha. Each flavor offers a unique essence that does not take away from the main ingredient, CocoKefir.
What kind of coconuts are used in the making of CocoKefir & CocoYo?
We use 100% Raw Organic Coconuts and we extract the water and pulp fresh in our very own facility.
Are there any common food allergens in CocoKefir?
People who are allergic to coconut should not consume CocoKefir. Beyond that, CocoKefir is dairy free, gluten free, soy free, low in sugar, and low calorie.
Other than the benefits of the probiotics, what other benefits does CocoKefir offer?
CocoKefir contains potassium, magnesium, and manganese – all good “brain nutrients.”
What is the difference between the probiotics in CocoKefir and other probiotics supplements?
The bacteria in pill or powdered probiotics are in a dormant state – meaning they are hibernating. They are not dead, but they are not alive either. Their numbers are reported “At Time of Manufacture.” Many people question how many actually survive to thrive and populate the gut. The probiotics in CocoKefir are LIVE AT THE TIME OF CONSUMPTION and are swimming in a food matrix that supports them. They begin working immediately upon entering the body. CocoKefir is a live, raw, fermented food.
How long can a bottle be stored for after opening?
A bottle can be stored in the fridge until the enjoy by date printed on the cap. For the best tasting experience, we recommend enjoying our product chilled. Ideally, bottles should be stored upright between 33-37 degrees Fahrenheit.
