Coconut products are amazing.
Coconut oil works best for cooking and as a topical skin product, and hair.
Coconut butter....mmmm, has a great taste. You can even make coconut ghee.
Coconut milk is shreaded coconut meat and water that is squeezed through a cheesecloth. This stuff is awesome. I use it mainly for a base in my
Coconut flour is good to make coconut bread and other baked goods as an healthy alternative to white flour.
Coconut cream is coconut milk without all the water.
And shreaded coconut is can be added to all kinds of dishes.
But why is this such a superfood? Coconut products, specifically the oil, all have antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral properties. They help
normalize blood lipids. The medium-chain fatty acids do wonders. Contrary to popular belief, the saturated fat in coconuts, the majority of which is
lauric acid, is NOT harmful but rather is extremely benefitial.
If you ask me, this is one of the world's top 10 superfoods.
