Organic Shredded Coconut by Let's Do Organic - 8 oz

As an avid coconut consumer, I go through tons of shredded coconut. Tender and sweet and flavorful, this stuff is as much a staple for me as salt. I add it to everything, from smoothies to baked goods to savory dishes like curries or stir-fries or frittatas. It’s great raw or lightly toasted, by the handful or the sprinkle. I keep a canister of shredded coconut in my kitchen, and it’s always gone before I know it. Let’s Do Organic offers some of the best coconut shreds I’ve had — soft and fresh and aromatic.

For the true, true stories behind this incredible foodstuff, read on.

I love coconut, in all of its forms. Fresh or dried, milk or water, shredded or flaked, butter or oil, I adore its creamy rich nutty taste, and eat it all the time. For a few decades, coconut was vilified by the American nutritional mainstream, but there’s been a reversal during the past decade, and coconut is now being celebrated as the health-giving food it truly is. Studies are coming out weekly, it seems, further supporting coconut’s role in supporting health in a whole spectrum of ways — from weight loss to energy-boosting to cognitive enhancement to immune boosting. Coconut is chock-full of lauric acid and medium-chain triglycerides, which have incredible effects on human health. Far from being unhealthy, the “saturated” fats in coconut are among the healthiest substances we can consume. People who once avoided coconut oil are now consuming it by the tablespoon, and loving the effects. Yes, it’s been a long road for coconut. But you can now feel good about consuming it with abandon.
