Production process

The white flesh of the coconut is shredded and dehydrated to have low moisture. When the coconut flesh is pressed, the coconut milk comes out with all the fat. The solids left over are dehydrated to make low fat desiccated coconut.

Regular or low-fat desiccated coconut are available from us.

Product Story & Background

The oldest of the coconut products. The simple sun dried or hot air dried coconut flesh has been around since men figured out heating through fire.

Fresh coconut is perishable and may not be available every time. In such cases, desiccated coconut is a very good alternative. It is finely grated, dried, unsweetened form of coconut, obtained by drying shredded or ground kernel.

It is used as a substitute to raw grated coconut in confectioneries, desserts like puddings, cookies, cakes, pastries, and other food preparations.
