How does water exist inside a coconut?

WATER absorbed by the root system flows against gravity through the capillaries to the nut.

Freshwater that gets accumulated in coconut is actually ‘endosperm’ or the food or nourishment for the coconut’s growth.

Nourishing endosperm is in the liquid form in the initial stage of the green coconut. After some weeks the liquid form starts transforming into the creamy tissue that starts depositing on the coconut’s inner surface.

By the time the soft creamy layer of tissue becomes the hard ‘copra’, the erstwhile endosperm would have become clean coconut water.

Raw coconut water consists of vitamin B complex, amino acids and living enzymes which help in digestion and metabolism. Calcium, potassium, phosphorus, magnesium, and sodium contribute to the high degree of hydration.
