BetterBody Foods Will Keep You Covered When It Comes to Healthy
BetterBody Foods believe the journey to a better life starts with better food. That’s why they travel the globe to find better ingredients so they can provide you with better food choices… because they know that life is better when you eat better.
Today, we see this highly versatile fruit everywhere — food, lotions, drinks and there’s even a World Coconut Day (Sept 2) which aims to raise awareness about the importance and benefits of the coconut. No one demonstrates coconut’s versatility more than the BetterBody Foods brand – take a look at all of their coconut offerings below; each is available on Amazon as well as major grocery retailers.
BetterBody Foods’ Organic Coconut Palm Sugar is the sweeter choice for anyone with a sweet tooth. This natural sweetener is low on the glycemic index – just 54 compared to regular table sugar (sucrose – 63) – contains nutrients that aren’t found in regular table sugar and has a natural hint of caramel flavor. Simply add it to coffee, tea, cookies, cakes or your favorite recipes for a delicious replacement for white and brown sugar.
With its neutral flavor and texture, BetterBody Foods’ Naturally Refined Organic Coconut Oil is a great substitute for butter, margarine or Crisco. With a smoke point of 425°F, it’s suitable for high-heat cooking and it also contains energy-driving medium chain triglycerides (MCTs) which can help give your energy a boost.
Did you know that medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) are often called a super fuel because the body is able to absorb them more quickly during a state of fasting than their long-chain fatty relatives? BetterBody Foods’ Organic MCT oil contains 100% energy-driving MCTs and is keto friendly, gluten-free and Non-GMO and is ideal for no-heat recipes, whether you’re making breakfast, dinner, or a snack.

When it comes to delicious, nutritious alternatives to standard grain-based flours, BetterBody Foods’ Organic Coconut Flour has flour power. First up, there’s a whopping 5 grams of fiber compared to 0.5 grams in white flour, and it’s low on the glycemic index (45 vs. 71 for white flour). As it’s made from ground coconut, our flour also retains a slight coconut flavor which adds a tasty tropical touch to any recipe.
If you’re partial to soy sauce but not so keen on the sodium content, it’s time to try Organic Coconut Aminos. BetterBody Foods’ delicious sauce is made from organic coconut blossom nectar and Himalayan salt and has less sodium than soy sauce. Plus, unlike soy sauce, it’s gluten-free. Simply use it whenever a recipe calls for soy sauce, for seasoning, marinating or on salads, rice and satays.
