Note: Fermented coconut water is the water from green coconuts that have been fermented using a culture to inoculate the water with various yeasts and beneficial bacteria. It is made in a process similar to other fermented drinks such as Kombucha and kefir. Fermented coconut water is just teeming with beneficial microbes.
