Features and benefits: Studies show that coconut's saturated fats can help increase good cholesterol levels, which may lower risk of heart disease. Of total fat content, you're getting a whopping 95% of heart-healthy saturated fats. Quality source of MCT's - medium-chain triglycerides get absorbed faster than other fats so less likely to be stored on your body and way more likely to be used as fuel - which is really important for keto.

Ingredients: Coconut 100% with no additional sweeteners or oils added - just pure, tasty and crunchy coconut. Here's even more nutritional lowdown from Bruce Fife's book called The Coconut Oil Miracle:
Coconut is rich in medium-chain fatty acids (MCFAs) which cannot be stored in the body. Instead they get broken down and are used for energy production. The MCFAs found in coconut oil are lauric acid, caprylic acid and capric acid.
- Lauric acid (LA) has the greatest antiviral activity. Nearly 50% of the fat found in coconut is composed of LA.
- Caprylic acid is a potent yeast fighting substance. It is very effective in eradicating candida (reducing sugar cravings) and other fungi.
- Capric acid has strong antimicrobial properties which can only be obtained by ingesting.
Gluten-free: Coconut flakes are by their very nature are gluten free, however we don't specifically test ours to be able to say that they are. While they are processed at the same site as gluten products, we do completely segregate products and equipment, schedule handling, and clean and sanitise in between different products. We do everything humanly possible to minimise the risk of any cross contamination.
