I’M NEW TO EATING COCONUT PRODUCTS. WHAT’S SO SPECIAL ABOUT COCONUT?
As you may know, coconut products have made a big comeback after years of being criticized as a ‘bad’ fat. In reality, coconut and coconut oil have been staples in the diets of some of the healthiest cultures in the world. This is mainly due to the type of fatty acids found in coconut.
Coconut oil contains a medium chain fatty acid, with a rather unique combination of Lauric acid and Caprylic acid. Lauric acid, which is about 49% of the fatty acid in coconut oil, has antimicrobial and antibiotic properties, and is anti-viral. Other attributes of coconut oil are that it helps with systemic candida, skin fungus and parasites.
Some of coconut oil’s other functions are that it helps with metabolism, supports thyroid health, helps with digestion, provides a long-lasting source of energy and helps with the absorption of the fat soluble vitamins A, D, E and K. Coconut oil is also now being researched to help people with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.
I'VE SEEN COCONUT ICE CREAMS IN THE STORE. HOW ARE YOURS DIFFERENT?
There are several reasons why Original Living Coconut ice cream desserts shine above the options at the store. To begin with, the coconut is raw and not heat processed. Four of the flavors are even cultured with a blend of beneficial probiotics strains! Depending on the flavor, they are sweetened with raw clover honey, stevia or coconut sugar.
Most of the store brands are sweetened with cane sugar, invert cane sugar (a highly processed sugar), or agave. These brands may also have additives and flavorings.
I’D LIKE TO ORDER THE ICE CREAM BUT WON’T IT MELT IN TRANSIT?
We will ship your ice cream in an insulated cooler with dry ice so it will arrive to you still frozen. The temperature of dry ice is minus 109 degrees. This works really well when shipping frozen foods so they arrive to you frozen. Yes, even ice cream.
I SEE YOU HAVE TWO KINDS OF CHOCOLATE FUDGE SPREAD MADE WITH COCONUT OIL.
Yes, chocolate lovers rejoice! These spreads are a delightful pairing of coconut oil and organic cacao, with a little coconut palm nectar for sweetener. The result is a guilt free superfood treat! We offer the Original and the Essentially Raw. Serving hint: drizzle lightly warmed Essentially Raw over coconut ice cream for a hard ‘shell-like’ topping.
DO YOU HAVE ANY OTHER COCONUT PRODUCTS AVAILABLE ON YOUR SITE?
Yes, we offer a variety of snack chips cooked in coconut oil: potato chips, sweet potato chips and yellow and blue corn tortilla chips. Coconut ghee, a 50/50 blend of organic grass-fed ghee and organic virgin coconut oil. And soaked cereals and nut butters.
