What is Coconut Butter or Creamed Coconut? How to Use?

Welcome to the velvety world of coconut butter, where taste meets texture in a tropical symphony! If you’ve ever wondered about this luscious spread and its magic, you’re in for a treat. Today, we embark on a journey through the creation, versatility, and nutrition of coconut butter, a true superstar in the realm of healthy indulgence.

What is Coconut Butter?

Coconut butter, often dubbed as the “sibling” of coconut oil, is a heavenly spread crafted from the pureed flesh of mature coconuts. Unlike its liquid counterpart (i.e. coconut oil), coconut butter retains the rich, fibrous texture of coconut meat, resulting in a creamy and delectable treat that can transform your culinary creations.

How is Coconut Butter Made?

The creation of coconut butter is a simple yet magical process. It begins with the extraction of fresh coconut meat, which is then carefully blended until it reaches a smooth, buttery consistency. This pureed coconut goodness is what gives coconut butter its unique taste and texture. No additives, no preservatives – just the pure essence of coconut in a jar. When the blending and rolling is done only once, the product is called “Creamed Coconut”. And when the blending is done twice and the particle size is made very fine, it is called “Coconut Butter”. So simply Coconut Butter and Creamed Coconut are two names for the same product.  It is a healthy and versatile spread that can be used on toast, in smoothies, or as a topping for desserts. Coconut butter is also a good source of fiber and healthy fats.

Coconut Butter is NOT USER FRIENDLY !!!

Coconut Butter is 100% natural and organic. There are no additional ingredients, preservatives to alter the natural coconut characteristics.Therefore when the coconut butter is stored at room temperature or in hot climatic conditions (In summer), the white coconut flesh and the oil separates into two layers. The solid coconut layer which sits at the bottom of the jar becomes rock hard, that even a butter knife cannot scrape out. This makes it awkward for a consumer who has experienced spreads with added ingredients, which has uniform consistency, no separation and looks neat.

But this separation is because our coconut butter is 100% natural, and it is made entirely of white coconut flesh. That is the true reason. And it is the healthiest proof to a consumer. There is a way to overcome this problem. First put the jar in warm water so that it heats up and all solidified matter gets loosen up. Then stir it until the separated oily layer and solid layer becomes one consistent paste.  Though it involves a special effort, organic coconut butter is Gluten Free, Zero Cholesterol, Margarine alternative (which has trans-fat and many additives), Rich in Fiber, Low Carb, KETO friendly, Dairy Free, Non GMO, No Artificial Flavors or Colors.  

Beyond its tantalizing taste and versatility, coconut butter packs a nutritional punch:

  1. Healthy Fats: Coconut butter is abundant in healthy saturated fats, particularly medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs). These fats can provide a quick and sustainable energy source, making coconut butter a perfect addition to a balanced diet.
  2. Fiber: With its retained coconut meat fibers, coconut butter is a good source of dietary fiber. Fiber is essential for digestive health and can contribute to a feeling of fullness.
  3. Vitamins and Minerals: Coconut butter contains essential vitamins and minerals, including vitamin E, iron, and magnesium. These nutrients play a crucial role in supporting overall well-being.

In conclusion, coconut butter is not just a spread; it’s a culinary companion that adds a touch of the tropics to every dish. Dive into the world of creamy indulgence and let your taste buds savor the magic of coconut with our premium coconut butter products.
