There are so many recipes on here with coconut flour, coconut oil, coconut water… is this a new fad, paleo inspired or recent discovery of the benefits of coconut? And how is it better than other products available? TIA

  • I think it’s just the latest ‘thing’ someone trying to get noticed maybe

  • I think the health benefits of coconuts is still being debated, but I love all the coconut products because I love the flavour.

  • I think it is just the latest fad but I don’t think it does any harm.

  • It does seem to be popular and very good for you as well!

  • I wondered that too. It seems coconut is the flavour of the month…lol. Maybe they have a big stock of them somewhere and need to use them up. :P

  • I really enjoy cooking with coconut but it is something I’ve had to learn to do.

  • Coconut has many health benefits. Here is a link to read about the different coconut products. I love using coconut products. Much better for our health and bodies. It has also helped me in my weight loss.

  • I haven’t researched the product and/ or the benefits of using it but I assume that it’s on the paleo fad.

  • Read the answers! Very cool! Coelic Disease – coconut flour very interesting I will let mum know is gluten intolerant!

  • Interesting Comments!

  • Interesting reading the comments!

  • maybe the poster just had a big bag to use up lol

  • Coconut Flour is an alternative for those who are gluten intolerant or worse still have Coelic Disease which means no wheat, rye, or barley in cooking….or food which has come into contact with any of them.

  • Like with many products – research them before trying.

  • It seems to be popular at the moment in recipes and in products.
