SHILOH FARMS Organic Shredded Coconut is highly nutritious and rich in fiber, vitamins, and minerals. It is classified as a "functional food" because it provides many health benefits beyond its nutritional content.
Coconut trees can live for up to 70 years, producing thousands of coconuts throughout their lifespans. The fruit harvested from these trees provides a nutritious source of cococut meat, juice, milk, and oil that has fed and nourished populations around the world for generations. On many islands coconut is a dietary staple and provides the majority of the food eaten. Nearly 1/3 of the world's population depends on coconut to some degree for their food.
