Here in Southern Florida, coconut's fist came about in the 1880's when a ship wrecked a couple miles away from Palm Beach. The coconut palm's that the ship was transporting broke free and the warm waters of the Gulf Stream brought the coconuts to the beaches of South Florida. And as a natural phenomenon, the coconuts took root and sprouted on the beach.  This is how the explorers of Southern Florida first saw the beaches and in one case named the beach after what they saw, a "Palm Beach". The rest was history! All thanks to a passing ship wreck and a boat of passing coconut palms.

Nutritional qualities.

Since the 1950s, coconut oil has been labeled as unhealthy. The media reported how tropical coconut oils were filled with fatty artery clogging fats. What was not reported was that the coconut oil used was hydrogenated and not the virgin oil used for our foods today. We now know that hydrogenation (which is the artificially adding a hydrogen molecule to oils ) not oil. Hydrogenated corn, canola and soy oils are filled with dangerous trans-fats and processed with toxic solvents are commonly added to packaged foods.

Why is it that baby formulas include coconut as an ingredient? Because coconut oil is one of the most healthy foods on this planet. Coconut oil is (cholesterol) and trans fat free and contains 1% omega (6) and is very rich in medium chain (good fats) that are recommended by doctors. .

One of the (good fats) that comprises 50% of coconut oil, is called lauric acid. Lauric acid is a medium-chain fatty acid found in "mother's milk" that supports healthy metabolism, and is now being studied for its antiviral, antifungal, & antibacterial properties. Researchers say  that lauric acid will soon become as well known as Omega-3. The Monsanto company developed a GMO canola oil that attempts to mimic coconut oil's high (%) of lauric acid. Coconut oil is making a comeback as we learn more about the downsides of consuming too many Omega-6 vegetable oil. Experts suggest that (3) tablespoons of extra virgin coconut oil a day is good.

Hydrogenated Trans Fat or Healing Coconut Oil
The FDA will be required to label "trans fats" in 2006. Additionally the entire fat industry is undergoing a federal review of it's guidelines. That means that  Nutiva is positioned to offer the "good fats" in its coconut oil products, which can play a important role in personal  health. no longer will you here: "zero fat equals good," "tropical fats equal bad," and "vegetable oils are beneficial".

Did you know that Pacific Islanders who eat coconuts everyday have low incidence of heart disease and are seldom overweight. When a American diet which includes vegetable oils replaces a Pacific Islander diet, all the fat related diseases which are common in America start to appear.

Use & Preparation:  To remove coconut meat from the shell, pierce at least two of the “eyes” with an ice pick. Drain coconut through a fine-meshed sieve to reserve liquid.  Removing the meat can be done in several ways. Usually the easiest is to tap the “nut” with a hammer to loosen meat, then tap hard enough to crack the nut open. Remove meat in pieces, using a regular table knife.  Trim off brown layer with a sharp knife or vegetable peeler. Rinse, then grate, chop or puree and use as desired.  With greener coconuts in may be helpful to place the whole coconut in a 350 degrees  F.  oven for 15-20 minutes, then proceed with the above steps to remove the liquid and coconut meat.  Yield: 1/2 lb coconut yields approximately 3 C grated.
