Turtle Mountain also talks about how these coconut almond bars are “rich in medium chain fatty acids,” which they say is a “good fat.”Â They describe MCFAs as “readily absorbed, digested and utilized as energy by the body, unlike long chain fatty acids which the body stores as fat.”Â Further, “two of the primary MCFAs found in coconut milk, lauric and capric acid, are known for supporting the body’s immune system.”
Lastly, this product is sweetened with agave which is a lower-glycemic alternative to sugar.
Description:Â Tastes like vanilla / coconut ice cream.Â It’s on a stick and coated with delicious chocolate that has little pieces of almonds and coconut dispersed throughout.Â The “ice cream” is so smooth and so creamy.Â The chocolate is fabulous and melts in your mouth leaving behind the little pieces of toasted coconut and almonds for you to crunch away on.
