How does Cocowhip have such a high probiotic count without any use of dairy cultures? +
Cocowhip obtains its cultures (probiotic count) from a specialised fermentation process. The Fermentation process transforms the coconut by a process of pre-digestion, which breaks down nutrients into the simpler forms. This supports digestion, promotes healthy flora in our digestive tract, produces beneficial enzymes and helps us to absorb nutrients more efficiently from our food. A healthy digestion is fundamental in supporting our overall health and particularly our immune system. Fermented coconut has been found to support the immune and antioxidant systems.
What is Xylitol and why is it used in Cocowhip? +
Xylitol is a naturally occurring carbohydrate, that looks and tastes just like regular table sugar without the unwanted calories and negative health effect. In Cocowhip Xylitol is used as a functional ingredient to help improve the ability of the body to absorb the electrolytes and probtiotics of Cocowhip. Xylitol is not an artificial substance, but a normal part of everyday metabolism and is widely distributed throughout nature in small amounts.
Preliminary studies show Xylitol may also enhance both the mineral and probiotic absorption of Cocowhip. This occurs by the carbohydrate compounds being able to bind and sequester the minerals and these carbohydrate-mineral complexes pass unabsorbed through the small intestine onto the colon when the minerals are released from the complex and absorbed. Xylitol is found in Cocowhip at 1.8g per serve.
Xylitol has been shown to adverse effects on animals and although found in low levels in Cocowhip we don't recommend consumpton for our furry friends.
