It’s recommended by nutritionists that we get 20-35 grams of dietary fiber a day. The average American gets about 15 grams. Coconut, believe it or not, is great source of dietary fiber with actually one of the highest percentages of fiber among all plant foods. In fact, 75% of its total carbohydrate content is fiber. To give you an idea of how this compares to other plant foods, the carbohydrate in green beans is only 30 percent fiber.
