Going Loco for the Coco!

So many amazing products come from coconuts. Coconut water, coconut oil, activated charcoal, the list goes on! We love adding a teaspoon of coconut oil/butter to our smoothies  and making our Fat Buring Lemonade  with Coconut Water for extra hydration this summer! Have you tried it yet? 
  Some fun Facts :
  • Coco for the Loco  : the name coconut is derived from 16th century Portuguese sailors who thought the 3 small holes on the coconut shell looked like the human face so dubbed the fruit "coco" meaning "grinning face, or grin"

  • The Coconut fruit is a drupe not a nut. Other drupes include peaches, plums, and cherries.

  • Coconut water is also gaining popularity as a sports drink as it contains good levels of sugars, dietary fiber, proteins, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals.

  • Coconut water can be a substitute for blood plasma. The high level of sugar and other salts make it possible to add the water to the bloodstream, similar to how an IV solution works in modern medicine. Coconut water was known to be used during World War II in tropical areas for emergency transfusions.

  • Coconut milk is not the same as coconut water. Coconut milk has a high fat content of around 17%, but is low in sugars. It is frequently added to curries and other savoury dishes. Coconut cream can also be created from the milk.

  • The white, fleshy part of the coconut seed is called coconut meat. It has high amounts of Manganese, Potassium, and Copper. The meat is used fresh or dried in cooking, especially in confections and desserts such as macaroons.

  • Copra is the term used for the dried meat. This can be processed to produce coconut oil used in cooking, in soaps, cosmetics, hair-oil, and massage oil.

  • The coconut does not get dispersed like other drupe fruits (through consumption by wildlife). Instead the coconut palm disperses its seed using the ocean. A coconut is very buoyant and highly water resistant and can travel very long distances across the ocean.

  • The Maldives have a coconut palm on the country's national coat of arms. It is the national tree and considered the most important plant on their islands.
