Two Important issues

Benefits of Coconut Water

Coconut water has been getting a lot of buzz lately. But what is it? And is it worthy of the hype?

First, coconut water is not the same thing as coconut milk. Coconut milk is creamy and comes from coconut meat, while coconut water is the liquid from young green coconuts. Coconut water is low-fat, with one-half gram of fat in one cup, and a good source of fiber, magnesium, potassium and vitamin C. The sodium content of coconut water can be high, so make sure to check the label.

Tip of the Day

Wash Your Fruits and Veggies: Hand washing may be one of the most important steps to preventing food poisoning, but it's not just your hands that need a good cleaning during food preparation. To prevent foodborne illness, it's also important to properly wash produce.

Follow these steps:

  • Use clean scissors or blades to open bags of produce.
  • Wash all fresh fruits and vegetables with cool tap water before cutting. This rule applies to fruits with a peel, too. Peels can carry bacteria that can contaminate fruit when cutting or peeling.
  • Scrub firm produce such as melons and cucumbers with a clean produce brush.
  • Remove and discard outer leaves of lettuce

Store clean produce in a clean container, not in the original bag or carton.
