So, what is manteca de coco?

Manteca de coco, or coconut butter, is a versatile and nutritious food ingredient that is derived from whole coconut flesh. Unlike coconut oil, which is extracted from the coconut meat, manteca de coco is made by blending the entire coconut flesh until it becomes a smooth and creamy texture. This process results in a rich and buttery consistency that can be used as a spread, a cooking ingredient, or even a vegan substitute for dairy butter. Packed with healthy fats, fiber, and essential nutrients, manteca de coco is a great addition to any health-conscious diet.
