30 Bananas a Day!

Hi all I have been buying young coconuts from the farmers market. The water is very sweet as is the meat. Are these recommended or does the cooking before import ruin them?

Is there any info that compares the nutrition of a raw baby coconut to a cooked one?


Thanks

I have never heard of coconuts being cooked or heated before import. You can test for rawness by putting some of the water or meat into hydrogen peroxide and see if it bubbles. Young coconut meat is soft and lower in fat than a mature coconut who's meat is used for lots of products like shredded coconut, canned coconut etc.  

This site has a good comparison of the two at the bottom: https://www.coco-jack.com/pages/health-benefits-of-young-thai-coconuts

Thanks Ednshell. All of the drinking coconuts that are sold in australia, other than local ones, have been cooked.

Ted Carr talks about it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AdTik05m1bY

Basically, if they have no green on them, they are cooked which makes the meat rubbery and the water sweet.  They go off within a day or two once picked, cooking makes them last longer for import and shelf life. The used by date on one i just bought in end of next month so obviously cooked.

I read somewhere that if they are "pre-shelled" then they have been processed

the one on the right that is whole is supposed to be raw

the ones on the left is the ones you get at coles or woolies and it's possible they have been processed
