I have recently discovered Cocofina coconut products which are organic, vegan and vegetarian-friendly, and, most importantly taste great.
Their products are certified organic by the UK Soil Association and many have won Great Taste Awards from the Guild of Fine Food.
You may even have seen them on Dragons Den where they won support from Dragons Sarah Willingham and Nick Jenkins. Cocofina products will now be available in the Lakeland Christmas catalogue this year and also Holland & Barrett.
They call themselves “The Coconut Experts” and their products are intriguingly packaged and design to encourage you to incorporate the goodness of coconut into as many dishes as possible.
For example, there’s Organic Coconut Chips as well as Organic Coconut Flour and Organic Coconut Sugar. Cocofina Coconut Chips are made by shaving thin peels from the coconut meat and then lightly toasting them. They are great for snacking or adding to your food to add a bit of crispy nuttiness.
Or how about some 100% pure Coconut Water? It’s full of electrolytes and high in potassium, which is an ideal combination to keep you healthy and hydrated.
Coconut water is naturally isotonic and hydrates you faster than water when working out. It also has only 25 Kcal per 100ml.
I love the individual 10ml sachets of coconut oil, just right for frying or even oil pulling for brighter, whiter teeth!
There are also some really unusual products like coconut vinegar and a great selection of gift boxes, ideal for Christmas.
And of course, there’s Cocofina Coconut Oil in a 450ml jar, a healthier alternative for frying, roasting and baking. This one is described as neutral and does not have the taste or aroma of coconut so it’s a great everyday oil and you can also use it for moisturising the hair and body.
