Did you know?
One of the most widely consumed fruits in the world, coconuts are a product of the coconut palm (Cocos nucifera), a tall tree that thrives in tropical climates. Consisting of round, hard shells surrounding an edible, fleshy white “meat” and thin, milky liquid, coconuts have been a dietary staple among island populations for centuries.
Dried coconut is a versatile food with a slightly sweet, nutty flavor and pleasantly chewy texture. Typically shredded, dried coconut can be eaten plain or toasted, in recipes or as a simple topping or garnish. Although high in saturated fat, coconut is a good source of fiber, iron and potassium and contains other important vitamins and minerals.
