PHENOM™ Water FAQ

Where does PHENOM™ coconut water come from?

 PHENOM™ coconut water is found in the cavity you see when you crack a young, green coconut open.  As a coconut matures, the white flesh absorbs and replaces coconut water, which is also absorbed into the air.  Therefore, coconut water must be found in young, green coconuts which are generally still attached to the tree.



How do you say PHENOM™?
PHENOM™ is pronounced fee-nom.



How is coconut water different from coconut milk or cream?
The difference is in the source.  While coconut water comes from the liquid in young, green coconuts, coconut milk and cream comes from the meaty flesh of mature coconuts. Coconut milk is made by boiling equal amounts of water and shredded coconut together until foamy, then straining, while coconut cream is made in a similar fashion but with a slightly higher shredded coconut to water ratio.



Does PHENOM™ coconut water taste like coconut?
No.  The #1 reason consumers are reluctant to try coconut water is the belief that it will taste like coconut.  In actuality, coconut water doesn’t taste like coconut at all, rather it has a refreshing, mildly sweet flavor.  Unflavored PHENOM™ coconut water is a clear liquid with what some describe as a nut-flavor.

Still worried about the taste?  The flavor experts at PepsiCo have come up with delicious, natural flavors that are part of the PHENOM™ coconut water line.  Flavors include Pineapple Punch, Lemon Mojito, Orange Guava Passion, and others.  Each variety is formulated with 100% natural coconut water.
