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

LYNDA BELL ARTIST

I am a vegan artist. I paint pictures with the goal of inspiring people to care for animals and to remember that they are sentient beings, in need of our love, care and protection. I think about what the earth would look like if there was no cruelty or exploitation – no farming or hunting or experimenting on animals. My paintings are stories in which people are heroes and heroines for the animals, because people can infact be just that in real life. I also like to have fun with my artwork, to create strange and silly scenarios and conjure imaginary critters, giant fruit and floating cupcakes.  My slogan is ‘artworks of colour, fun and happiness’ and I hope my paintings keep inspiring joy, while we fight the good battles here on earth.
