Delicious Pin It
(NaturalNews) I really find a lot of joy in bringing you some of the most unique and amazing natural food products from around the world, and this week I've got something so unusual and delightful that you'll be amazed it even exists. It turns out that coconut trees produce a lot more than just coconuts and coconut oil. A whole spectrum of surprising food ingredients are derived from coconut trees, and you've probably never heard of most of them.

For example, did you know that coconut trees produce their own soy sauce? It's not really made from soy, of course. It's called Coconut Aminos, and it's a dark, amino acid liquid harvested directly from coconut tree sap. Containing 17 naturally-occurring amino acids, this sap is combined with mineral-rich sea salt to create a soy-sauce-like "aminos" liquid that can help flavor salads, raw vegan dishes, sauces or even Chinese stir-fried cuisine.

Think of it as a natural replacement for soy sauce, but with a deeper and more complex taste. You've got to try this to believe that it really comes from coconut trees!

And there's another huge benefit, too: This "liquid aminos" product has absolutely no reactive MSG-like effects. That's rare because even in the natural products industry, there are amino acid products that contain a small amount of naturally-occurring glutamic acid that can have an MSG-like effect on those who are sensitive to it (like me). But the aminos from this coconut sap are completely unadulterated and non-hydrolyzed, so they remain in their natural form and have no negative effects on people sensitive to MSG. You can read more about this here: http://coconutsecret.com/Tappingthesap2.html

This coconut liquid amino product, by the way, is 100% certified organic, gluten-free, soy-free, dairy-free and vegan! Click here to check it out.

Coconut nectar is naturally sweet and highly nutritious

The next item you may not have known about that comes from coconut trees is Coconut Nectar. It's a very low glycemic liquid sweetener derived from the liquid sap of the coconut blossoms, and it naturally contains vitamins, minerals, amino acids and other nutrients (including vitamin C).

The manufacturer says the glycemic index of this liquid is 35, making it one of the lowest among any sweeteners. I haven't yet been able to independently verify that claim, but we are in the process of doing that through additional lab tests. In the mean time, the natural fructose content of this coconut nectar is so amazingly low that it becomes an instant no-brainer replacement for agave nectar. In fact, in my kitchen, I stopped using agave nectar quite a while ago and now use palm sugar crystals and coconut nectar.

Natural coconut blossom sap, by the way, is only 1.5% fructose when collected from the blossoms. As this sap is dried and thickened, removing much of the water, the fructose content of the final liquid only reaches about 10% -- far lower than the 50% - 90% fructose found in agave nectar products.

This makes coconut nectar a really smart choice for a natural sweetener. You have to try this yourself to believe how good it is. Click here to see more details at the NaturalNews Store.

Coconut crystals

If you take the coconut nectar described above and air dry it down to its crystalline form, you get coconut crystals! Think of it as "evaporated cane sugar" except it's not from cane sugar. It's from coconut tree blossoms and it has a far lower glycemic index than cane sugar.

These crystals are nutrient rich, loaded with vitamins and minerals, and they have a naturally brown or sandy color (indicating higher nutrition than white sugar). Although this product isn't yet certified organic, that certification is pending, and it's harvested from trees that are grown entirely without pesticides or herbicides.

It is completely unrefined, unbleached, non-GMO, gluten-free, etc. Very good stuff!

Coconut vinegar - better than apple cider vinegar?

There are some really great apple cider vinegar products on the market that are used by health food enthusiasts everywhere, and they're really good for you! But I think coconut vinegar may be even better because it comes from a source that's naturally higher in minerals and other phytonutrients.

It's high in potassium, for example, and also quite abundant in a naturally-occurring probiotic called FOS. Although vinegar is chemically acidic, it is believed to create an alkalizing effect inside the body during digestion, probably due to its high content of alkalizing minerals.

This coconut vinegar is made by aging (fermenting) coconut sap from coconut tree blossoms. This is raw, certified organic coconut vinegar made from the sap, not coconut water. (There is a huge difference between "sap" vinegars and "water" vinegars in terms of nutritional density.)

Get all four at a special combo price

I know you'll want to try these unique, nutritionally abundant superfood products. Your friends and family will be totally intrigued by these, by the way, because few people have ever heard of these unique coconut food products (much less actually tried them).

To help you try all these products at a great price, we've put together a combo pack containing:

• Coconut Aminos 8 fl. oz.
• Coconut Crystals 12 oz.
• Coconut Nectar 12 fl. oz.
• Coconut Vinegar 12.7 fl. oz.

You'll get one bottle of each (four products in total) at a special price for NaturalNews readers. Click here to take advantage of the "coconut secret combo pack."

Coconut flour works in thousands of recipes

In addition to the rare and unique coconut products described above, we've also got 100% certified organic coconut flour, made from non-heated, tumbler-dried coconut meat (with the oils already pressed out). It contains 40% dietary fiber and tastes absolutely delicious!

You can add coconut flour to smoothies, gravy recipes, breads and other baked goods. I like to blend it right into smoothies (when I can't get fresh coconut meat).

Coconut flour is a highly diverse superfood ingredient with all kinds of uses! Click here to pick some up at the NaturalNews store.

Enjoy these unique foods!

I sincerely hope you enjoy these unique fine food ingredients derived from coconut trees. I'm always impressed to learn just how versatile coconut trees really are, and until recently I didn't even know about several of these products.

As you know, I'm extremely selective about the kinds of food products I publicize or promote because I want you to be really amazed when we find something good. These coconut tree derived products are truly unique, and if you're into healthy eating, you won't want to miss out on experiencing these for yourself.

Think about this, too: Coconut trees grow near mineral-rich ocean waters, so products derived from coconut trees are often very high in natural minerals (because the soils near the ocean are high in minerals themselves).

We all know that natural plant-based minerals offer supportive nutrition for human health, and these coconut tree products offer some of the best sources for naturally-occurring minerals anywhere.

Enjoy these coconut tree foods!
