Creating Great Coconut Water Flavors

Coconut water is an incredibly healthy and delicious way to stay hydrated, and it’s no surprise that so many people are adopting this beverage as an alternative to the other drinks on the market. While plain coconut water tastes great, buyers love to have a variety of flavors to choose from. It’s no surprise, then, that more and more flavor options have been made available when it comes to these beverages.


Of course, it should go without saying that tropical flavors are the most popular when it comes to creating delicious coconut water flavors. Perhaps the most popular addition to coconut water is the flavor of pineapple, which can be added with a flavor ingredient such as Advanced Biotech’s Natural Butyl Butyrate or Natural Ethyl Butyrate, both available from Advanced Biotech’s line of Natural Flavor Ingredients.


Another popular option is banana, which is fresh, bright and absolutely delicious. Advanced Biotech’s Natural Allyl Heptoate makes for a quick and easy way to bring an authentic banana flavor into a coconut water beverage. Other tropical fruit additions include mango, available through the use of ingredients such as Advanced Biotech’s Natural Mango Essence; citrus flavors, such as those offered by Advanced Biotech’s Natural Lemon Citrus Extract; and even peach, which a flavorist can add to a coconut water product through the use of Natural Gamma Undecalactone.


In addition to these single additions, fruit mixes are also popular options when it comes to creating flavors for coconut water. Tropical fruit mixes featuring flavor ingredients such as pineapple, peach and mango, or simpler mixes such as strawberry-banana, complement the natural flavor of coconut water perfectly. If you’re looking to begin experimenting with the many different flavors possible in coconut water, just remember to keep things fresh and natural, and you can’t go wrong.
