Organic Coconut is a staple in many cuisines, Sri Lankan, Indian, Asian and, South American cooking, due to its natural abundance in the tropics providing wholesome, affordable nourishment. Dried and desiccated Coconut makes it easier for people in countries where Coconut does not grow naturally, to access this wonder ingredient, imparting an aromatic tropical flavour and crunchy texture to baking and cooking. Consuming dried Coconut also provides health benefits.
Connective Tissue Strength
Dried Coconut provides minerals that strengthen connective tissues, skin, tendons, ligaments, bones, and teeth. Connective tissues contain large amounts of collagen, tough and resilient protein fibres that form networks and hold the tissue together. Both copper and manganese support healthy collagen production, helping keep these tissues strong. Every 28g of dried Coconut offers 778 micrograms of manganese ( 43 per cent of the recommended daily intake for women and 34 per cent for men) and 226 micrograms of copper (25 per cent of recommended daily copper intake).
The copper in dried Coconut can also activate enzymes responsible for producing neurotransmitters, chemicals that brain cells use to relay information. Other copper-dependent enzymes help produce myelin, the fatty coating that sheaths each nerve cell and helps the cell conduct electricity. The fat found in dried Coconut might also prevent neurological disorders. One study published in the “Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease” in October 2013 found that the oil in Coconut helps shield nerve cells from the toxic effects of protein plaques, which would otherwise drive Alzheimer’s disease progression.
Fibre is suitable for diabetics, and those with cardiovascular and cholesterol problems, thanks to its iron and fibre content. Since the body uses fibre to control blood cholesterol levels, and a diet rich in fiber fights type-2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Desiccated Coconut offers 4.6 grams of fiber for every 28g, which is 18 percent of the recommended daily intake for women and 12 percent for men. The iron in Coconut helps the body make ATP, a source of energy. It also helps build red blood cells needed for oxygen transport. An ounce of desiccated Coconut offers 0.94 milligrams of iron;12 percent and 5 percent of the daily iron intakes recommended for men and women, respectively.

Packaging and recycling
Dispose of the soft plastic bag in the supermarket collection bin. We only use a plastic bag only because it allows visual proof of the dried chips size and seal potency better than paper bags in its travels from the coconut plantation to your kitchen.
