Coconut Secret offers a premium line of products for optimal health. The company began in the spring of 2008, with an overwhelming desire to create a low glycemic, gluten-free snack line that was truly safe for diabetics, using the purest, most organic, least processed ingredients available.
Coconut offers several health benefits. It helps prevent obesity by speeding up metabolism as well as improve digestion and many of the symptoms and inflammatory conditions associated with digestive and bowel disorders. Coconut helps to aid and support overall immune system functions.
Coconut products are also very high in dietary fiber, rivaling other fiber sources such as psyllium, wheat bran, oat bran, and rice bran. Coconut supplies an impressive 61% dietary fiber.
In addition, coconut contains no trans-fats, is gluten-free, non-toxic, hypoallergenic, and also contains antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal, and anti-parasitic healing properties.
Coconut sugar is made by collecting the “sap” from coconut tree blossoms. There are specific species of coconut trees that can be “tapped”, much like maple trees are tapped in the maple syrup making process. This naturally sweet sap is very low glycemic (GI of only 35, with only 16% sucrose), is an abundant source of 17 amino acids, minerals, vitamin C, broad-spectrum B vitamins, and has a nearly neutral pH.
