ORGANIC COCONUT FLAKES, desiccated, large
Botanical Name: Cocos nucifera
Certified Organic and Fair Trade
Country of Origin: Philippines
Qualities: Desiccated coconut is simply fresh coconut meat that has been grated and dried. It is available either ground into flour or in various cut sizes (fine (aka Macaroon), medium, and large flakes) as well as different thicknesses. We call our thicker flakes “chips” and offer them in a raw, toasted, or toasted & sweetened version.
Coconut contains no cholesterol or trans fats but is pretty high in saturated fat (7g/oz) and is appreciated for a number of essential nutrients, including dietary fiber, potassium, manganese, phosphorus, iron, copper, and selenium.
Common Use: dried coconut flakes/chips are delicious and very versatile. They are amazing in raw chocolate or energy bars, often found in pie crust recipes, used as a breadcrumb replacer, pretty as a topping for curries or mixed into salads, added to hot cereals or granolas, blended into smoothies (try blending with frozen bananas for a smooth coconut soft serve), or straight from the bag as a satisfying snack. You can easily make homemade coconut milk for drinking or cooking by blending water and shredded coconut together and squeezing it through a cheesecloth.
Storage: Store in a sealed container in a cool, dry place. Refrigeration is recommended for products with higher fat content but is not necessary for short-term storage. Desiccated coconut can be frozen for long-term storage.
