What is desiccated coconut?
Desiccation is basically a fancy term for ‘extreme dryness’. So our natural and organic desiccated coconut is coconut ‘meat’ (the fleshy goodness inside the famous super-fruit) that has been dried – leaving absolutely minimal moisture. This gives it a distinctive, deliciously crunchy, almost icing-like texture. Mmm, mmmm. After careful drying, our desiccated coconut meat is then grated and kept unsweetened, giving you heaps of nutritious goodness, without the excessive sugar intake.
