Unsweetened desiccated coconut are the dried meat of the coconut. High in fiber, minerals, and beneficial medium-chain fatty acids, unsweetened dried coconut contains many good health benefits.
Dietary fiber helps maintain regularity and avoid constipation and hemorrhoids. Dietary fiber can also help lower serum cholesterol levels. Because fiber-rich foods such as coconut are chewy, they help increase feelings of satiety and can help dieters consume fewer calories without feeling hungry. Eating a variety of fiber-rich foods is the healthiest way to achieve the recommended daily fiber intake.
Unsweetened dried coconut contains a wide range of minerals, including iron, potassium, manganese and selenium. Low potassium levels are linked with high blood pressure, and potassium-rich foods are the best source of this necessary mineral. Other minerals in coconut, such as copper, zinc and magnesium, fulfill vital health roles, including muscle and nerve function and bone development.
