Coconut is a very high saturated fat food, rich in saturated fatty acids. One of the fatty acids found in coconut is called palmitic acid. This fatty acid is essential for supporting cell membrane structure. Coconut meat is also very high in fibre and contains a variety of minerals, including manganese, copper, selenium, phosphorus, potassium, and iron. I hope you enjoy this nutrient dense, high protein treat!
