Coconut butter: what is it?

Does it count as a fat? A nut? A fruit? I am confused. I try to avoid lots of fruit (FODMAPs) and nuts/nut butters/seeds, but I stil Eat copious amounts of coconut butter, thinking it is neither. Am I wrong? Also, I understand coconut oil is good for digestion. Is the same true for coconut butter?

Coconut "butter" is simply ground up coconut.

Coconut butter is ground coconut meat. Various brands contain more or less fat. A coconut is a seed. The juice inside is the endosperm. It slowly consolidates to form the stuff we call the coconut meat.

Coconut butter is also called coconut cream concentrate or coconut manna! :)

It is delicious! =)

Re: whether coconut butter is good for digestion - I stopped eating it when I realized it was giving me more bloat. I think it's one of those individual things.
