What’s the difference between coconut water and coconut milk?
There’s a big difference between coconut water and coconut milk. Coconut water is the clear, electrolyte rich liquid inside younger coconuts and contains zero fat and zero cholesterol. Coconut milk, on the other hand, is produced after grating the “meat” of older, brown coconuts: a white, rich liquid containing oils and fat, and often used as an ingredient in cooking and baking.
Do taste and color vary?
Yes, the taste and color of coconut water varies based on country of origin and agricultural conditions. At RiRi Acqua di Cocco, we produce in Southeast Asia specifically. Depending on the season of harvesting, coconut water may have variations in taste and color. Regardless of that, we strive for the freshest tasting, most delicious coconut water possible in every unit.
Do you pasteurize this product?
Yes. Our machinery uses a patented method which filters and heat pasteurizes the water before it is packaged into the bottle. Only glass bottle gives RiRi Acqua highest quality and a shelf life of 12 months.
How long after I open a RiRi Acqua di Cocco does it stay fresh?
We suggest that if you open a RiRi Acqua and do not finish drinking it, that you place it in a refrigerator and drink it within 24-48 hours.
Is RiRi Acqua gluten free and vegan-approved?
It’s a big yes to both: our coconut water is gluten free and vegan-approved, as RiRi Acqua does not contain any animal-derived or dairy products in its beverages
Is RiRi Acqua kosher?
Yes, RiRi Acqua is kosher and is Star K certified.
Can women that are pregnant drink RiRi Acqua?
Yes, because it is pasteurized. In fact, Pregnancy Magazine featured coconut water as a way for expectant mothers to “drink smart” in their October 2010 issue.
Tell me more about your packaging. Why a glass bottle?
RiRi Acqua produces the freshest tasting coconut water possible by packaging its beverages in glass bottles, fully recyclable. One of the key factors, besides the quality, is the safety of our customers. Coconut water is recommended to drink during the pregnancy. That’s why it’s so important that our packaging doesn’t contain the BPA. All our bottles are BPA-free!
