Thank you for your quick response.Still, what is the major benefit(s) that you get from the liquid in the coconut (riped or unriped).I checked your USDA database but the table is too much for comprehession.can you just simplify it by stating the major benefits of it?Thank you as you do that.

Coconut water is found mainly in green coconuts and is sometimes used for fluid replacement in developing countries. One cup of coconut water contains more than 10% of the daily value for vitamin C, magnesium, potassium, sodium, manganese and fiber. It is fat free, with small amounts of other nutrients including some B vitamins, copper, phosphorous and selenium. Ripe or dried coconuts contain little or no coconut water.
