These organic coconut flakes make the perfect addition to your natural body care recipes which require exfoliating actions or added texture. Because of their pronounced flavor and aroma, they make a lovely contribution to exotic tea blends and other culinary delights. The coconut provides a highly nutritious source of meat, juice, milk, and oil that has fed and nourished people around the world for countless generations. On many tropical islands coconut is regarded as a staple in the diet and provides the majority of the caloric intake. Close to one third of the world’s population depends on coconut for its dietary and economic value. Coconut is classified as a “functional food” because it provides many health benefits over and beyond its already impressive nutritional content. Coconut contains high levels of lauric acid which is converted by the body into monolaurin. Monolaurin is responsible for making soluble the liquid envelope of a virus, causing the disintegration of the virus envelope and subsequent death of the virus. Our certified organic Coconut flakes are extremely small, almost granulated. For food and cosmetic use.
