Product Description

Eating a healthy diet often requires a few changes to your current dietary habits. Depending on the situation, the easiest 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 large 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 certain food items as an accent to the other flavors. Coconut is also a common 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, particularly if you’re trying to reduce certain health risks or improve your current 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!
