DA eyes promoting coconut water-based drink


The Department of Agriculture (DA) is prepared to support the production of a coconut water-based drink that could be suitable for athletes. The DA’s Philippine Rural Development Project, in a statement, said the agency is ready to support the production of the drink after this was successfully launched during the Challenge CamSur on June 14. The participants said the drink tastes good and is a better alternative to sugar-filled energy drinks. According to the Department of Science and Technology’s nutrient analysis, the coconut drink contains potassium and sodium that keep a person hydrated, among others.
