Our organic grated coconut (Medium) is a great way to always have coconut on hand when you need it. Grated coconut is also a dream ingredient as a topping on your favorite desert, for baking or just to munch on. Coconut meat is rich in several minerals, especially manganese and copper. It is also a good source of fiber.

What is desiccated coconut?

  • Desiccated coconut is the grated and dehydrated coconut meat, which is mainly used in the bakery and confectionery.
  • Desiccated coconut processing includes selection of nuts, husking, shelling, removing the testa (paring), washing, heating, disintegrating, drying, sieving and packaging. The fruit are de-husked in the field and transported. They are then split using a small hatchet or special knife to obtain a complete, undamaged ball. The outer brown testa around the ball is removed using a special knife. The pared kernels are then cut and the coconut water is removed. The pieces of endosperm are washed with fresh water to remove any remaining coconut water and other debris and to prevent discoloration. The material shredded, and dried, in which the moisture content is adjusted to 2.5–3.0%. After that the product is graded by size and packed.

• Nothing beats vacuum sealing for freshness.
• Store below 15°C and < 65% humidity.

• Mason jars make great storage containers.
• Can be frozen to prolong shelf life.
