organic coconuts

organic The coconut tree is an amazing plant, and is rightfully called the tree of life in many native cultures. Coconuts are a fruit of the tropics and therefore, do not grow but in a few isolated areas of the United States and not near enough to support our demand for these delectable goodies. So we import our coconuts from carefully chosen organic growers in the larger coconut growing regions of the world.

Nothing goes to waste

Literally every part of the coconut tree gets used for some useful purpose. For example, coconut manufacturers typically will use the woody coconut shell as a renewable fuel for their boilers, while the brown paring that surrounds the white meat is pressed to extract valuable oil. We think making tasty So Delicious Dairy Free coconut milk products is one of the best ways of utilizing this amazing food crop!
