Bite-sized coconut treats launch

O’Coconut from Nutiva snacks place the power of coconut in the palm of your hand

Nutiva announcex the introduction of O’Coconut™ bite-sized snacks in a 0.5-ounce, single-serve pouch. Nutiva’s new O’Coconut products are crafted from lightly sweetened organic, fair trade coconut and have only 60 calories each. They are made without corn, soy, or cane sugar. Enjoy pure coconut with O’Coconut Classic or try O’Coconut Hemp & Chia for additional nutty flavor and the nutritional benefits of Omega-3s. O’Coconut snacks are perfect for lunch boxes, to take on a hike, or anytime you want to satisfy a craving for a sweet but healthy snack.

“Our existing coconut products are popular for their nourishing properties in everything from baking to beauty care,” says Nutiva CEO and founder John W. Roulac. “With O’Coconut we are pleased to offer a delicious snack that harnesses the nutritional power of coconut, making it quick and easy for everyone to enjoy this popular superfood.”

Once a central part of the traditional Pacific Islander diet, luscious coconut is fast becoming a staple in modern healthy diets as well. Coconut oil is about 50% lauric acid, a nourishing medium-chain fatty acid found in mother's milk. Each O’Coconut snack boasts a 1.5 teaspoon serving of coconut oil.

Nutiva O’Coconut Classic and O’Coconut Hemp & Chia are available at Whole Foods Market locations nationally beginning April 2014 and will be available for purchase online beginning May 1, 2014. All Nutiva coconut products are made from fresh coconuts and are certified organic and verified non-GMO.
