I add nata de coco to my plain froyo + mochi, nata de coco to milk tea (from the bubble tea shops), nata de coco to vanilla ice-cream, and nata de coco to my warm earl grey tea!
I heart you nata de coco
Just some facts about nata de coco I learnt today:
It is from the Philippines.
It is produced from "the fermentation of coconut water, which gels through the production of microbial cellulose by Acetobacter xylinus."
- Extraction of coconut water
- Fermentation of the coconut water with bacterial cultures
- Separating and cutting the produced mat of nata de coco
- Cleaning and washing the acetic acid out of the nata de coco
- Cutting to packaging
