ORGANIC COCONUT PRODUCTS

The Tropical Superfood

This nutrient dense food is renowned for its great taste and numerous health benefits, but its versatility is perhaps what makes it such an important superfood. Virtually every part of the coconut has some practical application. Coconut Oil and Coconut milk can be extracted from the flesh, and are commonly used in cooking, as well as in cosmetic products. Coconut Water, which can be extracted and dried to form a powder, is increasingly being recognised for its rehydrating benefits. Coconut sugar, extracted from the flower nectar, has also gained much interest from the food industry as a natural sugar alternative.


Often associated with tropical beaches, the coconut (Cocos nucifera) is widely grown throughout the tropics, where it has long played an important role as a food source. With such a wide geographical spread it is no surprise that our range of coconut products come from places as far-flung as Indonesia, Vietnam and Brazil. 



The Diversity of the Coconut

Superfood Ingredients takes advantage of the coconut’s versatility, providing a range of nutritious products.


Our Coconut Water Powder is soluble and ideal for beverage applications. The coconuts are harvested in Brazil whilst still green, when the nutrient content of the water is highest and taste most flavoursome. We also offer Organic Coconut Palm Sugar, a natural sugar alternative, harvested from the flower of the coconut palm grown organically in Indonesia. It makes a great addition to baked goods, cereals and snack bars.


Superfood Ingredient’s Coconut Milk Powder, available in high or low fat varieties, is made from organic coconuts and is commonly used Asian inspired cuisine, although it can also be used in a range of baked goods and ice cream. Our Organic Virgin Coconut Oil can be used to as a healthy cooking oil or as a substitute for butter in recipes, as well as in soaps and cosmetic products.



Some of the Benefits of Coconut (Cocos nucifera)

The coconut is a nutrient dense food that can be used in a variety of different applications, each with its own set of unique properties and health benefits.


Nature’s Recovery Drink

In the sports nutrition world, health conscious consumers are beginning to move away from artificial drinks, instead looking towards natural alternatives. Coconut water may be the answer. As well as being low in fat and containing plentiful amounts of Vitamin C and B-Vitamins, coconut water presents the same electrolyte levels as human blood plasma, making it a great replacement for lost fluids. Calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, sodium and potassium can all be found in coconut water in their natural form. Because of this natural isotonic electrolyte balance, coconut water has also played an important role in the treatment of dysentery in the developing world.


A Natural Sugar Alternative

Coconut palm sugar also presents a variety of health benefits, making it a great natural sweetener for use in cereal bars, desserts and baked goods. It contains a wide range of micronutrients, including B-Vitamins, iron, potassium, magnesium, and zinc. It is also a source of the soluble a fibre Inulin, which acts as a prebiotic to support digestive health, and may help to slow glucose absorption.


Although sweet in taste, coconut sugar is termed ‘low GI’, which is a measure of how quickly carbohydrates in food raise blood sugar levels. Foods that are low on the scale invoke only a mild insulin response, reducing the risk of fat build-up and insulin resistance.


Healthy Fatty Acids

Whilst most saturated fats are thought to contribute to the build-up of cholesterol and an increased risk of heart disease, medium-chain fatty acids (MCFAs) are a sub-class with a number of documented health benefits. A large portion of the saturated fat found in coconut oil and milk consists of MCFAs, including the healthy fatty acids capric acid and lauric acid.


As it is plant derived, lauric acid is free from cholesterol. Research suggests it may reduce the risk of developing atherosclerosis, where plaque from high cholesterol builds up along the walls of arteries. It is also used to aid nutrient absorption in people with digestive disorders, and encourage healthy weight loss in others. Lauric acid also has antiviral and antibacterial properties, hence coconut milk and oil could play a role in protecting the body from infections and viruses.


Cooking at High Temperatures

The fatty acid profile of coconut oil gives it a higher smoke point than many traditional polyunsaturated or monounsaturated oils. The smoke point is the temperature at which the oil breaks down, and toxic by-products may be produced. Because of its above average smoke point, coconut oil may be more suitable for use in cooking at high temperatures than other oils.  It is also a versatile fat source that exists as a solid at room temperature, but liquid when heated.


Coconut Oil and Skin Care

Coconut oil is rich in Vitamin-E, a micronutrient that plays an important role in maintaining smooth, healthy skin. Due to its antioxidant potential, it has also been linked to a reduced rate of skin aging and wrinkling. Coconut oil also contains proteins that contribute to tissue repair. Superfood Ingredients’ coconut oil can be applied as it is to the skin, or mixed with other ingredients to create a variety of cosmetic products, including soaps and moisturizers.
