Why does coconut water have a pink color?
Immediately after coagulation and pascalization, coconut water is naturally transparent. By the process of oxidation and ripening, its color naturally changes into a beautifully pink color.

In cold, at low temperatures, it lasts for up to 40 days without the need for pasteurization that would otherwise reduce the bioactive substance content.
What is pascalization?
Treatment of coconut water by high pressure is called Pascalization (High Pressure Processing, HPP) operates on a simple principle: coconut water is packaged in a flexible container and placed in a pressure chamber filled with drinking water. After closing, the pressure in the chamber increases to 6000 bar for a few minutes. High pressure can destroy bacteria, viruses and molds that are responsible for spoiling the water without having to heat it or add preservatives to it. All living enzymes, minerals and vitamins are preserved in the water. The extended shelf life allows you to enjoy the water away from the place where it was matured.
