Our Nutiva Coconut Manna™ product has been flying off the shelves, and has generated a lot of interest, and we’re thrilled. We wanted to take a moment and answer a couple of questions that we’ve been getting recently, namely, “how do I get the product out of the 5lb bag”, and “how do I use Coconut Manna™.”
We put together a quick video to answer the first question. The answer to the 2nd question is further down the page. We’ll add new FAQs to this post as they continue to come in.
Q. Coconut Manna™: How does a person dispense the bulk 5lb Coconut Manna™?
A. The 5lb bulk bag of Nutiva Coconut Manna™ is primarily intended as a food service item. Its main use will be in restaurants and smoothie bars and in food service applications. This unit is not intended for the home user unless they have a strong food preparation background.
The product needs to be melted in its entirety, blended, then poured into smaller containers. If you melt and pour off only a portion; only the oil will be removed. This will result in the remaining material comprised mostly of coconut fiber and protein. If this sounds too challenging please start with our 15oz jar.
Q. How Do I Use Coconut Manna™?
A. Coconut Manna™ is great to use in various recipes as a replacement for milk, cream, yogurt or butter. It’s delicious on top of or mixed into rice, oatmeal, cereals, and smoothies. Some folks love it spread on toast or crackers (for a strong “coconut-ty” flavor.)
You may notice some oil has separated to the top of your jar or bag during shipping. Simply warm all the way through, then stir the oil back in. Or, spoon the oil from the top and use for cooking! It’s your choice. We generally recommend stirring the oil back into the Coconut Manna™.
NOTE: in colder climates, and during the cooler months, your Coconut Manna™ will tend to harden. You can use a spoon to “chip” pieces of it and then serve, or you can place the jar in hot (but not boiling) water for a few moments. Be sure not to burn the Manna™.
Q. What is Coconut Manna™?
A. Coconut Manna™ is in the coconut butter family, but we felt the superior flavor of Coconut Manna warranted a new name. If you like coconut butter or coconut cream, you will love Coconut Manna™
Q. What are the benefits of using Coconut Manna™?
A. Coconut Manna™ is organic and healthy – no trans-fats! his tropical “melts in your mouth” treat contains 12% fiber and 9% protein and nourishing fats. Some people also use Coconut Manna™ on their skin as a body butter!
