Dried coconut is tasty, filling, and portable.
It's high in fat, including medium-chain fats that may increase metabolism, promote weight loss, and improve brain function in people with impaired memory.
Make sure to get the unsweetened type, since many packaged options harbor sugar. Unsweetened dried coconut packs about 185 calories in 1 ounce (28 grams).
A wide variety of dried, unsweetened coconut is available online.
