I've heard of coconut oil, but what is coconut butter?
Coconut butter is made from shredded coconut or the meat of the coconut. Similar to peanut butter, we use Binnie's Coconut Butter as a superfood spread on toast, smoothies, pancakes, waffles, fruit, oatmeal, sandwiches or even on potatoes!
Why is coconut butter healthy for me?
Coconut is full of medium chain triglycerides which is saturated fat that's good for you! It's metabolized in the liver and used up as energy right away while keeping you full and satisfied for longer. Coconut is classified as a "superfood" and has a wide range of benefits from stimulating the metabolism to improving brain function. It even contains lauric acid which kills bacteria and can ward off infections in the body. So yeah, we agree with the "superfood" thing.
Your coconut butters are easier to spread than others. Why?
So glad you asked! We work hard in production to create a coconut butter that is easy to spread. Even though you will taste the shredded coconut in there, it should still be a spreadable consistency because we strive to be our best!
We don't want you to have to heat it (and no need to refrigerate, even after opening!) so storing and serving our coconut butters at room temperature is where they perform best.
Try not to let it get too hot or it will completely melt and then solidify again as it cools, adversely affecting that spreadable consistency. You can still eat it, it will just be harder to get out of the jar after solidifying.
