Over the past few years, the coconut market has exploded into one of the most flourishing food sectors in the US and UK. Once the type of food you could find only during exotic holidays, coconut products are now highly demanded and available in many deli shops, healthy stores and cafes, trendy gyms and top restaurants.
Despite the strong competition, Mighty Bee Coconut products have seen a very quick rise in demand among the health conscious population and undoubtedly became one of our new favourite food brands.
Their products have sweet flavours and aromas, characteristics of their land of provenience, Thailand. They are proud to work with farmers that grow organic Nam Hom coconuts, from the Ratchaburi Province, in a sustainable and environmentally friendly approach
Their variety of products is definitely what differentiates them from the pack.
- Virgin Coconut Meat
Which is the rich white lining that is contained within the shell of the coconut.The farmers hand-pick and freeze the coconut meat 24 hours after harvesting their crop. This means that once opened, it has to be eaten within 24 hours, or if you freeze it, once defrosted, it can last for another 3 days.
For years, this amazing ingredient has been seen as unhealthy and high in saturated fat. Contrarily, many studies have finally clarified that coconut meat actually contains medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs), which, when eaten is transported from the intestinal tract to the liver and immediately transformed into fuel and consequently does not deposit in fat tissues in the body.
Coconut meat also possesses disease preventing and health promoting properties thanks to its measurable vitamins A and E, polyphenols and phytosterols, which all work together to decrease the levels of LDL cholesterol. It is a great meat substitute with a soft, jelly-like flesh consistency filled with enzymes, fibre, calcium and protein.
- Virgin and Raw Water
The Virgin Coconut water is produced without any additives, preservatives or added sugar. It gets shifted from tree to bottle in 24 hours, keeping all its freshness and nutrients intact. The Raw Coconut Water undergoes an HPP (High-Pressure Process) to prevent the growth of growth of harmful micro-organisms and prolong its life shelf while maintaining all of its authentic flavour and nutrients. Both products, once opened, need to be consumed within 24 hours and will last up to 5 days if frozen.
