Move over coconut water: in 2015 we’ll all be drinking birch water, apparently
Still drinking coconut water? That's sooo this year. Real food trendsetters are all about birch water. Yep, we're talking trees.
Those super pretty silver birch tress in your garden or local park could be the source of the new "super-water".
It's a traditional drink in northern parts of China and Europe (including Scotland), and birch extract has been used as a herbal remedy for decades. Many claim it provides health benefits – although medically, the verdict is still out.
It won’t be readily available in bottled form in the UK until early next year (in time for that January detox, ahem).
