Is Coconut Water Healthy? BBC One Rip off Britain | UK Dietitian Nichola Ludlam-Raine

Hey guys! So in case you missed me talking all about coconut water on Rip off Britian here is the clip! Really hope you enjoy it!

MORE INFO: Coconut water consists of naturally occurring sugars, sometimes added sugar, as well as small amounts of naturally occurring vitamin C and potassium. However, there’s double the amount of vitamin C though in a glass of orange juice! In my opinion, coconut water is NOT as good as water for day to day hydration, as water is sugar free as well as being much cheaper, but you could argue that if you’re having a no added sugar variety of coconut water then it’s much better than drinking a full sugar fizzy drink. Ideally we should be having at least 8 x 200ml glasses of fluid a day to stay hydrated.
