While coconut is high in saturated fats, it provides decent amounts of iron, copper, manganese, and potassium.
Choose a coconut that is free of cracks and is heavy for its size. Shake it and listen for a full liquid sound. If unopened, a coconut can be kept at room temperature for up to six months. Grated fresh coconut can be kept in a refrigerator in a tightly sealed container for up to four days or frozen for six months.
