Suggested Use

Origins

The coconut palm is an ancient plant and distant relative of the grass family that grows best in the saline soils of coastal regions. Whilst the exact origins of the coconut palm is unknown, it is believed to have come from the Philippines, where there are now more coconut trees than anywhere else in the world. Today, the coconut palm can be found growing between the latitudes of 26 degrees north and 26 degrees south, taking in the coastal regions of South and Central America, Africa, the southern coastal regions of Asia and the Polynesian and Hawaiian Islands.

Quantity and dosage

Scatter one or more tablespoons (8-25 grams) of desiccated coconut over your preferred hot and cold dishes. Each bag of Detox Your World desiccated coconut contains 100 grams, so can be used up to 12 times, depending on how much you use.

Facts
