Coconut shavings are obtained from the flesh of a coconut palm nut, which is first dried and then rubbed into fine chips.
The flesh is rich in nutrients such as vitamins C, E, K and B group vitamins, minerals: zinc, phosphorus, magnesium, sodium, potassium, calcium and iron. They and its derivatives (shavings, coconut chips, coconut oil) contain saturated fatty acids. Animal-derived saturated fats should be limited in the daily diet, but coconut-based fatty acids are made of much smaller molecules and converted directly into energy without being stored as fat in the body.
Shreds contain enormous amounts of fiber, which is essential for the proper functioning of the digestive system. There are also small amounts of protein and electrolytes that help maintain the acid-base balance of the body.
