Nutrition info: Calories in Nata de coco

Posted on | March 25, 2012 | No Comments

Nata de coco

Nata de coco is a chewy, translucent, traditional Philippine dessert which is a coconut gel-product made from the fermentation of coconut water. Nata de coco is most commonly sweetened as a candy or dessert, and can accompany many things including pickles, drinks, ice-cream, puddings and fruit mixes.

Nata de coco pudding: 1 cup (118 g)

  • Energy: 109 calories
  • Protein: 1 g
  • Carbs: 7 g
  • Fat: 0 g

Nata de coco consists of 67.7 % water, 0.2 % fat, 12 mg calcium, 5 mg iron, 2 mg phosphorus and small amounts of vitamin B1, protein and only 0.01 mg of riboflavin per 100g.

Because it’s mainly water and cellulose (fibre) this product is safe to be eaten by anyone.  It’s low in calories and can be considered an ideal addition to your diet if trying to lose or manage your weight.  Because of the high fibre content, it’s also good for digestion and has a cholesterol lowering effect.

When packaged as a retail product, the main energy (calories) is added in syrups or flavourings.  Therefore, to keep it really low calories, simply mix with fresh fruit or use low calorie / sugar free flavourings.

    • Guest_3668 : Referring to the previous message, sodium will be bad as without sufficient water they may cause organ damage. Hence just maintaining a healthy balance between the soup and noodles (ref. fishball noodles post) will do.
    • Guest_3668 : Just noticed you don't put the sodium levels. Would like to let readers out there know that her suggestions (eg drinking the soup first) will make the meal VERY sodium heavy. So there's something to look out for. Other than that, great blog.

I would also appreciate it if you could include bean thread noodles, udon and soba in your findings, thanks!
    • Guest_3834 : Hi! Could you please collate the nutritional information of the different types of noodles in Singapore (eg. bee hoon (thick vs thin), kway tiao, mian xian, mee kia (the type used in wanton mee etc. The only 2 sources I can find with these info are very contrasting so I'm seeking your knowledge / research, Thanks!
