Creamed coconut is a delicious addition to any meal. It is a thick, rich plant-based food that derives from raw coconuts. After ripe coconuts are harvested, their white flesh is grated and soaked in water, and the cream rises.

 

It has many health benefits. Notably, coconut cream has a relatively high fibre content. Additionally, it’s an excellent source of B vitamins, vitamin C, vitamin E and the essential minerals iron, selenium, sodium, calcium, magnesium and phosphorus. B vitamins help form red blood cells and turn calories from food into usable energy; and may prevent anaemia. Vitamins C and E are both antioxidants: C encourages tissue growth and repair, and E protects healthy tissues from free radical damage. Essential minerals are minerals your body can’t produce on its own, and they work to encourage better immune function and disease prevention.

 

 The fatty acids in coconut cream are also metabolised more rapidly by your liver than animal-based saturated fats, which have a different cell makeup and may be more likely to become fat stores. Unlike animal-based saturated fats, coconut cream is cholesterol-free.
