LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--What USA Today names one of this year’s big food trends, coconut, is kicking 2013 off with a smash at the Oscars. Backstage and in the dressing rooms at this year’s Academy Awards, Hollywood elite will be enjoying Blue Monkey’s 100% pure, not-from-concentrate Coconut Water and new Coconut Chips.
A family-owned company formed in response to the demand for quality, not-from-concentrate coconut water and all-natural juice and coconut blends, the Blue Monkey Coconut Collection makes its coconut water preservative free with nothing added. Naturally a great source of minerals and electrolytes, coconut water is also characteristically low in fat and calories; free of cholesterol and contains a natural balance of sodium, potassium, calcium and magnesium - making it a very healthy beverage. It’s no wonder coconut water has received such solid celebrity recognition over the years.
Blue Monkey will also be premiering a new product at the star-struck Hollywood event: Coconut Chips. A delicious combination of salty and sweet, Blue Monkey’s Coconut Chips are 100% natural, baked free of preservatives, and lightly sweetened with coconut nectar sugar and non-GMO cane sugar. Available in unsweetened, ginger and wasabi flavors, the product is a great source of heart-healthy fiber (packing in a solid seven grams per serving!) and is already available at most Whole Foods locations across the U.S. and Canada and online at Amazon.com.
“The philosophy of our company is to stay as pure as possible to the original source, simply including what is found naturally in the coconut itself,” shared Simon Ginsberg, Blue Monkey founder. “Coconut meat is often called the king of foods due to its wonderful texture and nutritional makeup. Maybe after the Oscars, coconut will be the king of Hollywood.”
