Find coconut water that's best for you. Isn't your health worth it?
What is coconut water? It's the natural juice in green coconuts -- and it's now being bottled and sold as a natural alternative to sports drinks due its electrolytes. But does it really deliver? That depends on the brand, according to our tests.

Our tests revealed that one coconut water product inaccurately listed the amount of sugar it provided. In addition, sugar levels ranged across the products by 64%, sodium by 460%, magnesium by 870%, and the amount of potassium in a cup of each ranged from 285 mg to 490 mg. We also found that you could spend from 72 cents to as much as $1.98 for a cup of coconut water.

Among the products that passed all of our tests, we selected a Top Pick based on quality, nutrition, taste, and cost.
