What if coconut turns pink?
When your coconut water turns pink, it means that the coconut itself has high levels of an enzyme called polyphenol oxidase. Polyphenols are a type of natural antioxidant, the tiny buggers that make coconut water a nutritious and delicious drink.
Why did my coconut turn red? This process occurs because coconut contains the enzyme polyphenol oxidase (PPO). This enzyme has four atoms of copper and a space for oxygen to bind to it, and the oxidation process causes it to produce black, brown, or red colors.
