What is coconut?

Although coconut meat contains less fat than many oilseeds and nuts such as almonds, it is noted for its high amount of medium-chainsaturated fat. About 90% of the fat found in coconut meat is saturated, a proportion exceeding that of foods such as lard, butter, andtallow.

There has been some debate as to whether or not the saturated fat in coconuts is less unhealthy than other forms of saturated fat (seecoconut oil). Like most nut meats, coconut meat contains less sugar and more protein than popular fruits such as bananas, apples and oranges. It is relatively high in minerals such as iron, phosphorus and zinc.
