A chef shows how to quickly remove the hard shell from a coconut before serving up the delicious flesh and water. After peeling away the green coating, the man uses a knife to cut a small strip around the circumference of the shell. The top can be easily removed and the inner part gently prised out from the bottom part of the shell. The white meat on the inside then drops out like a ball, still in tact. Inside the white section is the juicy coconut water, which can then be drank with a straw. Footage was recorded at a shopping mall in Bangkok, Thailand, where the chef has a market stall selling the fresh coconuts for 80 baht (around 2.50 dollars). The chef said: ”Many people just drink the water from inside from inside coconuts. But the fruity part is also very tasty. Using this easy method with a sharp knife, people can get all the fresh coconut water and the meat from inside.” The coconut is a fibrous one-seeded drupe, but can also be defined as a fruit, nut or seed. Raw coconut meat and the fresh water are a healthy, natural and organic snack which contains fibre, the trace mineral manganese, potassium, iron and copper. All of the nutrients have innumerable health benefits – as well as being delicious. The powerful antioxidants help boost the immune system and reduce systemic inflammation in the body, while other medics suggest that they help to reduce the age-related diseases.
