I found what sounds like the most delicious ingredient in my local organic food store this week: Milanaise Roasted Coconut. These Roasted coconut chips look delicious!
The product is attractively wrapped, with a little window to show the large flakes of roasty-toasty coconut. Best of all, according to the back of the package, it’s the only ingredient. I was very surprised when I discovered my old brand of shredded coconut was really a cocktail of ingredients!
According to the Monash FODMAP App, a half cup of shredded, dried coconut gets a yellow warning light, as it contains a moderate amount of polyol-sorbitol. (Incidentally, I had a tough time finding the coconut on the FODMAP App, as raw coconut isn’t included – just the dried and shredded type, which is considered a ‘processed’ food. So it’s listed towards the bottom of the list. Incidentally, coconut milk is given the green light).
I usually add shredded coconut to a recipe, so I don’t think I’d eat more than a quarter cup at a time, which is given the green light by the app.
So what should I do with my new package of Roasted Coconut?
