Cocoburg is on a mission to prove that in addition to being delicious when eaten fresh, dried coconut meat also makes a satisfying snack. What's most significant about this coconut snack is that it's branded as the world's first "raw vegan jerky." This means that the coconut meat is dehydrated with minimal heating and in place of honey, the only sweetener used is made from coconut sap.
Following a successful crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter, Cocoburg now produces plant-based jerky snack in two types: Ginger Teriyaki and Chili Lime.
In addition to Cocoburg, there are other companies that are beginning to create dried fruit snacks from banana and watermelon and brand them as "jerky" as well. Considering that many consumers are attempting to improve their snacking habits, products like these make it easy to make a simple substitution.
