Coconut flesh or meat is simply dried and shredded into delicious and versatile shredded coconut. All the natural flavours and aroma are retained without the use of sweeteners or preservatives.

Coconut is well known for its protein and lauric acid content - a super nutrient. Lauric acid is a medium chain fatty acid when consumed, transforms into a substance called monolaurin that can strengthen the immune system and fight various diseases and viruses. Lauric acid is found naturally in breast milk - a natural germ fighter and has been added to infant formula as protection and nourishment for babies.

When you consume coconuts - fresh or in a dried form such as
Coconut Butter/Oil, Coconut Flour, Coconut Flakes and Desiccated Coconut, monolaurin exists to provide good health.

Why is Coconut a wonderful superfood?
* Ideal for baking - lower in carbohydrates compared to other flours and even some vegetables so easier to digest and a great addition to any recipe!

* Gluten free and hypoallergenic. High in protein like wheat flour, without the gluten proteins that cause allergies for some who are sensitive to gluten and wheat.

* High in fibre 58% - the highest amount of dietary fibre found in any flour and very high compared to some other vegetables. Wheat bran has only 27% fibre.

* Aids in weight loss - to a healthy weight. Low carbohydrates, no trans fats, high in fibre, protein and lots of lauric acid - Coconut aids healthy digestion, boosts metabolism whilst providing necessary amino acids in protein with good levels of energy.

*
High in lauric acid - strengthens your immune system.

How to use?
Coconut is everyone's favourite in savoury and sweet dishes. Perfect for curries, stir fries, pies, cakes, tarts, biscuits, muffins and as part of your breakfast cereal.

Have it raw or lightly toasted.
