The Coconut Cube: A Delicious and Nutritious Snack

How many times a day do you dream of a fresh coconut, perhaps picked from a tree on an island, the cool wind blowing over your hair, the gentle breeze from the sea… Wait, where were we? Ah yes, coconuts.

Everyone knows that coconuts are delicious, easy to eat and have a great nutritional profile. The problem is, carrying an entire coconut in your handbag may draw some odd looks at the office. The solution? Coconut cubes – all the goodness of fresh coconut in an easy, convenient format.

The Benefits of Organic Coconut Cubes

Our raw organic coconut cubes have a light, nutty, and aromatic flavour. They're grown using traditional methods to preserve their natural goodness.

We source our coconut cubes from Sri Lanka, from certified organic areas. The farmers work in the surrounding area, cultivating the land and improving their living conditions by operating in harmony with nature.

After the harvest, the coconut is opened, the coconut water removed, the shell removed, and the fruity interior of the coconut cut into cubes. The coconut pulp is then gently sun-dried. The processing is done with careful manual work and under high hygienic conditions. This ensures that the dried organic coconut cubes are of very good quality.

The Perfect Snack for a Healthy Lifestyle

Our modern facilities use a combination of eco-friendly pressure treatment and cutting-edge spectroscopy to check, clean, and select our products, guaranteeing premium quality in every pack. The whole process is done without harmful artificial processing methods, for sustainable snacking that's Right by Nature.

Coconut is rich in potassium, which contributes to healthy muscle and nervous system functioning, and helps the body to maintain normal blood pressure. Coconut has high iron content, making it great for metabolism, while also supporting brain function and immunity.

Coconut cubes can be added to fruit smoothies, soups, and curries, blended into healthy drinks, or just eaten as a tasty snack

FAQ

Yes, dried coconut is good for you when consumed in moderation. It's a nutritious snack that provides essential nutrients such as dietary fiber, which aids in digestion and helps maintain satiety, and medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs), a type of healthy fat that can support metabolism. Dried coconut is also rich in minerals like manganese and copper, important for bone health and maintaining healthy red blood cells. However, it's calorie-dense and high in saturated fat, so it's wise to enjoy it as part of a balanced diet to harness its health benefits without overindulging.

Coconuts originally come from the Indo-Malay region, thriving in tropical areas around the world, including parts of Asia, Africa, Latin America, and the Pacific region. They grow on the Cocos nucifera palm, which is highly adaptable to sandy soils and coastal environments. Plantlife's Dried Coconut Cubes are sourced from Sri Lanka.

Dry coconut can be incorporated into a diabetes-friendly diet in moderation. It's low in carbohydrates, which helps minimize blood sugar spikes, and high in dietary fiber, promoting satiety and aiding in blood sugar control. The medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) in coconut may also support insulin sensitivity. However, due to its high fat content, portion control is crucial to avoid excessive calorie intake. It's advisable for individuals with diabetes to consult with a healthcare provider or a dietitian to determine the appropriate amount of dry coconut in their diet, ensuring it aligns with their overall dietary needs and health goals.

Dry coconut can be a beneficial addition to a pregnancy diet, offering a good source of essential nutrients such as fiber, which aids in digestion and helps prevent constipation, a common issue during pregnancy. It also contains healthy fats, which are important for the development of the baby's brain and nervous system. Additionally, dry coconut is rich in minerals like iron and magnesium, crucial for both the mother's and baby's health. However, due to its high saturated fat content, it should be consumed in moderation. As with any dietary changes during pregnancy, it's best to consult with a healthcare provider to ensure it fits within a balanced and nutritious diet tailored to the needs of both the mother and the developing baby.

Dry coconut is generally allowed on flights as part of your carry-on or checked luggage. It's considered a non-liquid food item, so it doesn't fall under the restrictions typically applied to liquids and gels in carry-on baggage. However, it's always a good idea to check with the specific airline before traveling, as regulations can vary. Additionally, if you're traveling internationally, it's important to consider the customs and agricultural regulations of your destination country, as some countries might have restrictions on bringing in certain food products.
