    Arrive and leave the party in style whilst looking ridiculously good looking drinking your new summer drink!

    rsz_1rsz_coconutmojiyo

  • 5 Fast Facts About Coconut Water Benefits

    We here at the Coco Crib love our coconut water. It tastes great, cools you down after sport or in hot weather and you can use it in so many different ways; from smoothies to muesli to shakes. But if we can be serious for a minute, coconut water has great health benefits too.

    Today we look at 5 fast facts about coconut water and its benefits to you!

    coconut-waterblog

    Low in Calories

    Compared to your average sports drink, coconut water has a lot less calories, 45 per serving than those loaded with unwanted sugars. Make the switch to GoCoco and you’ll feel the difference.

    Potassium Power

    You need potassium to help your brain and nervous system work properly and one serving of coconut water can help you get 13% of your daily requirement. Stay on top of things and keep your wits about you.

    Digestion

    Coconut water contains high concentrations of fibre and this will help to prevent indigestion and reduce acid reflux. Sure, it’s not most glamorous of benefits, but its an important one!

    Low Glycaemic

    It is estimated that coconut water has a glycaemic load of just 3. This is a big different against drinks with sugar in them that would cause spikes in blood sugar levels.

    A Potential Curer

    Over indulged? GoCoco can replace the much needed electrolytes that your body needs to recover from dehydration and it can settle the stomach too. Get back to your best quicker!

    We know many people use GoCoco for different reasons? Tweet us your favourite use for the product and let us know!

Often our neighbours at consumer shows up and down the UK, our friends at Supernature’s rapeseed oils really do understand oily infusions.

    Who are Rude Health? What's that brand I keep seeing everywhere. Just some of the questions we've been asking ourselves the office lately. Rude Health is a family run, London-based food and drinks company co-founded by husband and wife, Nick and Camilla Barnard.

Sticking by their ‘Eat Right, Stay Brilliant’ tag line, Rude Health’s range of cereals, porridge, granola, flours, drinks and snacks contain nothing artificial and nothing refined. They source their ingredients from fields, orchards, and vines – not laboratories and therefore no thickeners, preservatives, colourings, flavourings and other additives are used – the proof is in the taste! We’re in a position to preach about them, those pumpkin cereal bars are tasttttty!

    Rude Health

    Day 8. Emily’s Fruit Crisps

    Emily’s fruit Crisps are an exciting new range of snacks that have all the goodness of fruit with the crunch of a crisp. Named after one of the co-founders, these Fruit Crisps are something of a little love story. While Emily and her lovely partner, Alex were travelling in the Far East, they found an astonishing way of making crisps in a vacuum that preserves all the good things in fruit while still being amazingly crunch. They decided to make their own and Alex named them after Emily so he could see her name wherever he went…how Romantic!

    Emilys fruit crisps
