Coconut water is one of the best summer coolers which keeps us refreshed and cool. Sometimes, when we drink coconut water directly from the unripe coconut we come across a layer of soft, white and creamy layer of flesh. That flesh is known as coconut meat. In India we call it ‘coconut malai’ and often we ask the person selling us the coconut water to cut the coconut and take out the malai for us. The health benefits of coconut milk, coconut water and coconut oil are known and thus, are consumed by a large population. This coconut malai is rich in nutrients like fiber, manganese, iron, zinc, phosphorus and potassium. Some of the health benefits of eating coconut malai are mentioned below.
