I happen to have Coconut meat and Coconut Milk as toxins. Just wondering if natural coconut juice would be OK to drink? Would it also be a toxin?  There is so much publicity on just how good it is supposed to be for you.

Unlisted foods are considered neutrals.

I looked at coconut water (the water inside the nut) sometime last year and from my view at that time it looked to be 'safe'. I don't know how it would rate in the GTD.

Great question Jumari...I keep looking at coconut water in the health food store and
wondering if I could drink it too.  I also have coconut milk and coconut meat as toxins..but coconut oil is a diamond.

I've given up my Thai curries with coconut milk and eating raw coconut meat, two things I love. Like you say Lloyd if its not listed it must be a neutral.

I've been wondering about this one, too. I use coconut water/juice going into and coming off 14-day cleanses and fasts,  and as an O nonny nonny I can say that it has never felt like I was doing myself harm. We must, of course, defer to the good doctor on this one.

For the record - coconut water (also called coconut juice) is the natural liquid found inside a coconut when you crack that puppy open. Coconut "milk" is actually the product made by boiling/processing regular water and shredded coconut flesh.

Coconut meat, oil and milk are all avoids for me.  I do love a coconut water and rum with a tablespoon of sweetened condensed milk and a sprinkle of nutmeg.  mmmm good
Probably not so good, though.

I was just looking at the links Chloe posted. Makes coconut water / juice sound like the nectar of the gods hey. Is it safe to assume that if it isn't listed in Swami, it is a neutral for me?

I have given it the same rating as coconut meat.......to each their own interpretation.

Quoted from Jumari

Coconut milk is commonly coconut meat and water.

Coconut water (from inside the nut) is something else...
