Ah, coconuts. That tall, lean tree we associate with holidays in a tropical paradise; that refreshing drink (with that bendable straw and little umbrella) we connect with leisure and relaxation! But there’s more to coconuts than meets the eye.
Yes, it’s that round, green, brown or yellow ball with delicious liquid inside. But what are coconuts really? Is it a fruit?, Or is it a nut, as there is a “nut” word in the name?
Technically speaking, a coconut is a dry drupe (stone fruit) from the palm family. However, if we are going to follow loose definitions, coconuts can be considered a fruit, a nut and a seed all at the same time. Coconuts have three layers just like all drupes: an outer layer, a fleshy middle layer and a woody layer which surrounds the seed.
Portuguese explorers of the 15th century who discovered it growing in abundance in the islands near the Indian Ocean and the Pacific Islands first called this fruit “coquo.” Coquo means “monkey face” and they named it such because the outer shell of the fruit reminded them of the face of a grinning monkey.
Coconuts have a nickname: The Tree of Life. There are many reasons for this. One, every part of the coconut and its tree can be utilized. No part of it—roots, trunk, leaves, fruit, husks—goes to waste.
It can be made into cosmetics, hair and skin products, household cleansers, garment, furniture, utensil, building materials, chicken feed, even bio-fuels and more.
Coconuts can be made into raw coconut nectar, vinegar, organic coconut sugar, milk and coconut oil. These are not just food, but are also used as medicine.
During World War II, doctors use coconut water as an emergency short-term substitute for human blood plasma (intravenous solution). A refreshing drink to beat the heat and dehydration, coconut water is rich in electrolytes, simple sugars and enzymes that help in the proper function of the digestive system and metabolism.
The health benefits of raw coconut oil are immense. Pacific Islanders use it to strengthen hair follicles, smooth out wrinkles, relax the muscles, lessen epileptic seizures, and boost the body’s ability to resist infections.
Raw coconut nectar and organic coconut sugar are naturally high in amino acids and polysaccharide inulin but with a low glycemic index which means it is a sweetener good for diabetics.
It is the prime most objective of Impact Foods to deliver coconut products of only the highest quality.
Other companies pick and store coconuts first before using it in their products, but Impact Foods producers only use fruits that have been freshly-picked and chosen from the best part of the harvest season. We don’t wait for the coconuts to get past its “prime”—otherwise, we would lose a substantial amount of its nutrients (and ultimately our customers and reputation as well). What we do is utilize the fruits immediately after harvest to ensure that the maximum health benefits of raw coconut oil, coconut sugar nutrients, desiccated coconuts and our other coconut products are maintained.
To achieve the highest possible quality of our coconut products, we don’t use just any kind of coconut fruits for our raw organic coconut sugar, oil, flour and desiccated coconut—we picked the ones with the best taste by individually trying and testing all of them.
Impact Foods is more than capable to consistently provide the highest quality coconut product—be it oil, sugar, syrup or nectar, flour or desiccated coconuts. We supply these products in bulk, private label and white label in the UK and all over Europe. We can handle anything from 10kg orders to full container loads.
