Are coconut health claims all they’re cracked up to be?

Devotees claim coconut contains “healthy” fats, which are better for the heart and can even aid weight loss.

But Helen Bond, a dietitian and spokesman for the British Dietetic Association, isn’t convinced.

“People think that because coconut is natural it must be healthy – unaware it carries surprising amounts of calories and saturated fat,” she says.

Real coconut juice is good,
I wonder about that processed packaged stuff in the stores.
