Desiccated coconut offers many benefits. It is a great source of healthy fats and as runners we rely on our fat stores for energy when we run out of our carbohydrate stores. Therefore desiccated coconut may be a great source providing us with more available energy. Desiccated coconut is also high in fibre and it also helps us with absorbing nutrients.
