More info

Desiccated coconut provides minerals you need to keep your connective tissues - a group of tissues that includes your skin, tendons, ligaments, bones and teeth -strong. Connective tissue contains large amounts of collagen, tough and resilient protein fibers that form networks and hold your tissue together. Both copper and manganese support healthy collagen production, so they keep your tissues strong. 

 

Desiccated coconut offers other health benefits thanks to its iron and fiber content. Your body uses fiber to control your blood cholesterol levels, and a diet rich in fiber fights type - 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Desiccated coconut offers 4.6 grams of fiber per ounce, which is 18 percent of the recommended daily intake for women and 12 percent for men. The iron found in coconut helps you make ATP - a source of energy - as well as red blood cells that you need for oxygen transport. An ounce of desiccated coconut offers 0.94 milligrams of iron - 12 percent and 5 percent of the daily iron intakes recommended for men and women, respectively.

 

Despite the nut's impressive nutrient content, you should consume desiccated coconut in moderation because it's high in saturated fat. Each serving contains 18.3 grams of total fat, including 16.2 grams of saturated fat. This means that just one ounce of coconut contains just shy of three-quarters of your daily saturated fat limit, if you follow a 2,000-calorie diet.
