Amanprana organic gluten-free Fair Trade coconut dietary fibre
for regular bowels and low in calories

To allow healthy bowel movements, you need to eat 10g fibre at every meal. Many of us don't reach that target, have a cramped feeling in the stomach and irregular and/or hard bowel motions, which become difficult to pass. And that is far from healthy! A regular supplement of coconut dietary fibre, sprinkled onto your meals, will ensure regular bowels and a flat stomach. What's more, coconut dietary fibre cleanses the gut (by keeping food moving through it), thereby increasing the body's resistance and promoting general vitality. Gluten-free coconut dietary fibre will also cause toxins and cholesterol to leave your body faster, for better health. 1 level tablespoonful of desiccated coconut contains only 30 calories and 10g fibre.

Gluten-free Fair Trade Coconut dietary fibre from Amanprana has a delicious, mild, coconut flavour. Coconut dietary fibre is much lower in calories than other high-fibre products because it contains considerably more fibre. In the table below, you will note that – besides being much lower in calories - coconut dietary fibre also offers three other big advantages over rival products. Gluten-free coconut dietary fibre contains no gut-irritating gluten, no phytine acid that inhibits the assimilation of minerals and no cyanide which reduces the number of calories you burn. What you will find in coconut dietary fibre are the 8 essential amino acids and heart-healthy MCTs which support the uptake of essential minerals.

In short: gluten-free coconut dietary fibre is 100% natural, healthy, delicious and 100% vegetable-based. Amanprana comes in an eco-friendly pack. We never test our products or ingredients on animals. Remember: good health begins with a healthy digestive system.

Choose Amanprana and support the Fair Trade coconut project

In the Philippines, Amanprana started a cooperation with Peter Paul and with Ecocert. Ecocert is a French organisation certifying organic and fair trade produce. Peter Paul is one of the very first coconut companies that became independent after the Spanish oppression. It employs 2,000 people while 305 small farmers from the Lezon province supply the organic coconuts. In 2009 we started a joint fair trade project that pays 3% of our purchases into a cooperation fund. That money is used for education and health care, for environmental care, it supports a coconut seed programme and pays towards a better infrastructure for the farmers, workers and suppliers. It is also used to fund an incentive programme for the workers. In addition, the price we pay for the coconuts exceeds the common price by 10%. The project includes an education programme for the workers' children and acquaintances. 40 students will participate in 2010. Peter Paul also maintains a local hospital that is open to its employees as well as the community.
