PURE CEYLON

Pure Ceylon Kokonati has the widest range of organic coconut products under a single brand! Something for everyone, even those who can’t have dairy, gluten, soy or peanuts. All Kokonati products are single origin, single ingredient and packed at source for ultimate freshness. Raw virgin coconut oil, cooking and steam deodorised coconut oils, they do it all.

Organic Coconut sugar and nectar is made from a type of sweet syrup extracted from the sap of the inflorescence of the coconut palm. The sap is boiled down much like sugarcane juice to produce coconut sugar and coconut nectar or treacle. Coconut nectar is lighter in texture than Kithul treacle and has a natural sweet taste.

Our Organic Coconut flour is a byproduct of our Organic Virgin coconut oil production. It has an aromatic coconutty fragrance. A raw, pure flour that allows you to bake high quality, gluten free, low carbohydrate foods. Coconut flour is high in fibre, and low in carbohydrates. Low GI makes it a suitable option for those watching their weight as well as affected by diabetes.

Currently available at Farro Fresh, selected Fresh Choice stores, IEproduce, Naturally Organic, The Natural Health Co and Bin Inn stores countrywide, as well as most organic, natural health shops around NZ. For more information visit www.ceylonkokonati.co.nz
