WITHOUT KNOWING IT, YOU’RE EASILY BUYING KILOS OF COCONUT
1 in 20 products in the supermarket contain coconut. The most obvious are products containing coconut milk, coconut water or coconut fibers, but many more products secretly contain coconut in the form of oil: which is nutritious, has a neutral taste and only turns soft if it is above room temperature. This is ideal for making ice cream that melts less quickly and biscuits that stay crunchy longer. It’s processed in products like sweets, biscuits, ice cream, sauces, coffee creamer, chocolate products, and baby food.
