Comments "CNW is the free fluid present inside the immature coconut, an acidic solution of sugars, amino acids, and electrolytes with a specific gravity of approximately 1.020. Its electrolyte components resembles intracellular fluid more closely than extracellular fluid and consists mainly of potassium, calcium, magnesium, and chloride." "Specific gravity is the ratio of the density of a substance to the density (mass of the same unit volume) of a reference substance. (Wiki)"
