Coconuts 101

March 30, 2022 Team Goodness

It's no secret; we are nuts for coconuts! The coconut has more benefits and applications than you can believe. We extract maximum goodness from the coconut in many nutritious, delicious ways, with our range of over 20 coconut products!

The coconuts used to create our products are ethically and sustainably sourced from Sri-Lanka, Papua New Guinea and Indonesia. 

Coconut milk:
Regular: The white flesh of coconuts are simply grated and pressed, extracting a 17% fat, creamy milk. The coconut milk is sterilised, homogenised and canned.
Light: Same processing as our regular milk however only10% fat content, producing a less creamy milk.

Coconut cream:
Regular: Produced by reducing our coconut milk, leaving it with a more dense and less watery consistency. It contains higher content of flesh than water.
Supreme: The coconut flesh has pressed and only the coconut cream extracted. This provides 30% more fat content when compared to normal coconut cream forming a thicker consistency.
Whipping Cream: Blended with added tapioca starch to provide greater stability and structure to the cream. Our delicious vegan friendly alternative to dairy cream, loved equally by non vegans for its delicious taste profile!
Sweetened Condensed Milk: Coconut cream is blended with sweetened organic cane sugar. 

(Note that not all coconut milk and cream is created equal! Our cans are nothing but 100% pure organic coconut milk or cream, where many organic brands have added water, and often added guar gum as a thickener. Plus, our cans are BPA free)

Coconut butter: 
Coconut Butter: The coconut meat is simply blended together to form a rich, creamy texture. No pressing and separating is required like the cream. 

Dried coconut: 
Shredded: Coconut flesh is simply dried, then grated into strands.
Desiccated: The dried coconut is ground instead of shredded, forming a much finer texture.
Flakes: Coconut flesh is dried and then shaved into long, wide flakes. 

Coconut oil: 
Virgin Coconut Oil: The pure white coconut fresh flesh is pressed using a cold expeller press, extracting just the oil.
Purified/Deodorised Coconut Oil: The white flesh is quick-dried with a hot air dryer producing copra. The copra is then cold expeller pressed and oil collected. This oil is then dry steamed to deodorised. This produces a flavourless and odourless oil. 
MCT Oil: Caprylic (C8) and capric (C10) acid is physically extracted from the other fats in our coconut oil, producing a 98% MCT oil. 

Regular: Derived from coconut sap of the coconut blossoms in Mexico. The sap is gently heated to remove water content and prevent fermentation, producing a deliciously sweet syrup.
Rich Dark: This coconut syrup is sourced from Sri-Lanka, possessing a richer flavour than the regular variant. 

Coconut Sugar: Organic coconut syrup which is simply heated, left to solidify and then granulated.
