The Remarkable Coconut

by Bea James, senior manager of organic, natural and sustainable programs
Friday, October 14, 2011

Coconut water, coconut oil, coconut milk, coconut kefir, coconut probiotics, coconut body care, coconut flour…you get the picture. Coconuts are a huge trend in the natural food world right now. Why? Because they offer quick replenishment for hydration and electrolyte fuel, and they are a wonderful sustainable resource.

The coconut palm—the long standing symbol for a relaxed beach vacation—is actually one of the most extraordinary trees on the planet. In the Philippines, the coconut tree is known as the “Tree of Life”. This may seem like a rather lofty name, but when you consider all of the diverse uses of this fruit bearing tree, I think it’s a fitting one. From root to frond, this is one of the most hardworking plants in history.
