Coconut water and coconut jelly - low or high fat?

AnneInMpls | May 12, 2008 09:28 PM

I know that coconut meat - the flesh from a mature coconut - is full of fat, as is coconut milk (the creamy white stuff).

But what about the thin flesh (aka coconut jelly) from a young coconut? Is it high-fat, too? Or does the fat develop as the coconut matures?

Basically, I need to know if a young coconut drink - with the jelly - is a reasonable treat, or if it's a high-fat indulgence that I should ration if I'm trying to keep my fat intake low.

Thanks,
Anne
