The Coconuts that drop from palm trees in tropical climates have enriched salads, curries and pies worldwide. Organic Coconut Flakes are made from dried and flaked Organic Coconut flesh. These are large Flakes that are popular in cereals, muesli & baking.
The unsweetened Coconut Flakes are a concentrated source of calories, which means they have a high-calorie content compared to their serving size. Now studies show that the medium chain fatty acids in Coconuts are not like other saturated fats. One, lauric acid, is the predominant fatty acid in mother's milk.
Shredded and flaked air-dried coconut can lose flavor. The best Flakes for a healthy diet are the freshest and most pure.
This premium dried Coconut contains no additives or preservatives, and is not sweetened.
Coconut is classified as a “functional food” because it provides many health benefits over and beyond its already impressive nutritional content. Coconut contains high levels of lauric acid which is converted by the body into monolaurin. Monolaurin is responsible for solubilizing the lipid envelope of virus’s, causing the disintegration of the virus envelope and subsequent death of the virus.
Dried Coconuts are a good source of copper, zinc, magnesium, manganese, iron, B Vitamins and even calcium.
