Coconut butter your way to a happier gut!

by Niulife

Our organic coconut butter is 100% pure creamed coconut, made from certified organic coconut flesh that is simply dried then ground into a smooth paste. It’s a popular pantry staple for health enthusiasts, foodies, dairy & sugar-free diets, and particularly those on ketogenic or paleo diets. The best news is, not only does it taste delicious, it’s also packed full of nutritional benefits! 

Our coconut butter contains over 60% pure virgin coconut oil, making it a rich source of medium chain triglycerides (MCT). From accelerating cognitive and muscle performance, to balancing your gut, enhancing your immunity, and assisting with weight loss and stamina, MCT oils are rapidly becoming the go-to natural power fuel.

If that’s not enough reason to reach for our coconut butter, it’s also full of dietary fibre. As you may know, fibre plays an important role in digestive help, aids in producing a feeling of fullness, helps regulate blood sugar, promotes healthy HDL & LDL cholesterol levels and is linked to a decreased risk of heart disease. Fibre even assists with “cleaning” our digestive system by helping take away stuff our body doesn’t need. What is particularly amazing about our coconut butter is that it is packed with prebiotics. Prebiotics are a special type of fibre that is not digested by the small intestine and goes through your system to perform some amazing functions. This can include helping to smooth things out in the digestive tract and keep you feeling regular. They increase the “good” bacteria in the gut and can reduce abnormal bacterial leakage through the gut wall. Prebiotics can also assist with increased calcium and magnesium absorption, promoting stronger bones.

Now that you know a few of the health benefits, let’s get back to taste. Our organic coconut butter is deliciously fragrant and super creamy! This makes is perfect to use in so many ways, such as:

  • Spread on fruit or toast
  • Used in raw desserts, and as frosting
  • Dolloped into warm porridge
  • Melted and then poured over ice-cream
  • Added to smoothies as creamy non-dairy alternative
  • Spooned into milk to make a creamy coconut milk drink
  • Added to curries or stir-fries as thickener
  • Poured into moulds with fruit and nut mix
  • Blended with chocolate
  • Eaten by the spoonful straight from the jar!
