Product Description

Eating a healthy diet often requires a few changes to your current dietary habits. Depending on the situation, the most natural change is altering the between-meal snacks. Opting for a healthy alternative to the snack foods you reach for most often is an easy way to improve your personal health and well-being. Unsweetened shredded coconut could be one of the best components of any healthy diet.

Health benefits of shredded coconut

Unsweetened coconut contains a low concentration of carbohydrates, but it still has a significant amount of fiber. Since the standard American diet has a low level of fiber, adding dried coconut to your diet as a healthy snack or a baking ingredient will increase the amount of fiber in a diet plan. Since your body needs a certain amount of dietary fiber each day, eating coconut encourages a healthy level of fiber and reduces the complications associated with a low fiber diet.

Dried coconut is also a good source of iron, as well as the immune-boosting mineral zinc.

How to use dried or desiccated coconut

Dried coconut is a healthy option for snacks and part of a meal. Eat a handful of dried coconut between meals to limit hunger or add it to specific food items as an accent to the other flavors. Coconut is also a frequent and flavorful ingredient in many cuisines and can be used as breading or as an elegant decoration on cakes and other baked goods.

Eating a healthy diet requires a few changes to your current habits, mainly if you’re trying to reduce specific health risks or improve your existing energy levels. Dried coconut has a high amount of fatty acids and fiber, which help reduce hunger and encourage weight loss over time. Order some today from Food to Live!

  1. 4 out of 5

    Coconut is good, as is the price. The description says medium long shreds, which is why I bought it, but I was disappointed to find they are quite small shreds. Maybe better for making coconut milk, but I just use it in cooking where I would prefer larger shreds so you can actually tell its in there.

    I was told that using desiccated coconut in my coconut cake would help reduce the “chew, chew, chew” factor that normally happens with the usual flaked coconut, and I have to say they were right. I was very happy with this seller and will buy again when I make the cake again.
