Nutrition and health
Naturally gluten and cholesterol free, it contains 20% protein and the eight amino acids essential to our body. Despite being naturally sweet, it shows a very low glycemic index (35). It is also extraordinarily rich in fiber!
Probably originating from the Indo-Malay region, coconut acclimated itself to every tropical country. Despite its ability to easily grow to 20 meters high, the coconut tree is not a tree, but a plant like the banana tree! Formerly called Tenga by native people of these lands, coconut is named “big India nut” by the westerners. The “Coco” term is invented by Portuguese travellers in the 16th century.
