In addition to its myriad of uses, coconut is also sustainable, since the environmental impact of growing it is low, making it a planet-friendly choice. From keto-friendly MCT oil, yummy coconut yoghurt kits, and coconut sugar to organic coconut oil for cooking and skincare this superfood is a winner.
Considered a superfood, coconut is abundant in fibre, minerals, vitamins and dietary fats. From the Cocos nucifera palm tree, coconuts are technically a drupe rather than a nut.
While it contains saturated fats, these are healthy medium chain triglycerides. Also called MCTs, they are converted into energy rather than being stored as fat. MCTs are popular for people who are following keto diets and you’ll find them in keto supplements and snacks.
Organic coconut oil is often an ingredient used in beauty products and can be a great addition to your skincare regime. It also contains vitamin E and its nourishing fats can support healthy supple, youthful skin.
Coconut yoghurt is a great plant-based alternative to dairy based yoghurt, for a probiotic and healthy fat boost.
Coconut sugar is a popular low G.I. replacement for refined cane sugar. It has a rich caramel taste and is high in minerals and is also considered one of the most sustainable sweeteners so it’s a better choice for you and the environment.
