Coconut products seem to be everywhere these day. Shredded coconut has been around forever, perfect for healthy cookies and coconut dessert recipes. These days there is coconut water, coconut milk, coconut kefir, coconut milk yogurt, and coconut milk ice cream. Coconut Water is the clear liquid that pools inside of the whole green coconuts. Coconut water is different from coconut milk, which is pressed from the fatty coconut meat of the fruit. Coconut Oil may help with weight loss, with pure coconut oil, not water, where the research lies. There have been several studies that have found that coconut oil may aid weight loss because of the type of fat it contains. The fat found in coconut oil is called medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs), which are metabolized differently than fats from other oils. Most of the fat in coconut oil is saturated, but more and more research is confirming that not all of saturated fats are bad. Coconut oil can actually raise your good HDL cholesterol in the body and provide antioxidants that are similar to those found in berries, dark chocolate, and grapes. Coconut milk is a coconut product that includes some of the good coconut fat with 66 percent of the fat coming from MCTs, and while the unsweetened fat is low in carbs, it’s also low in protein and calcium of about 10 percent of the daily value versus 30 percent found in cow milk or soy milk.
