About

The coconuts that drop from palm trees in tropical climates have enriched salads, curries and pies worldwide. But when the meat was found to be primarily saturated fat, they were labeled unhealthy.

Now studies show that the medium chain fatty acids in coconuts are not like other saturated fats. One, lauric acid, is the predominant fatty acid in mother's milk.
Medical professionals still urge moderation--and more studies.

Coconut flake quality varies. 

Supermarket--and some health food store--brands are made for long shelf life by using additives (sulfites, propylene glycol and sugar). Shredded and flaked air-dried coconut can lose flavor. 
The best flakes for a healthy diet are the freshest and most pure.

Freeze-dried coconut flakes are naturally sweet and need no preservatives or chemical additives. Frozen fresh to minus 20 degrees F, they are then dried, retaining flavor and nutrients.
