What

This finely desiccated organic coconut has all the natural flavour and aroma of the coconut retained as the coconut flesh is simply dried and grated, without the use of sweeteners or preservatives. Organic desiccated coconut is preservative-free, sulphur-free, gluten-free, cholesterol-free, high in fibre and delicious.

Served Best

It is a great addition in both sweet and savoury dishes. Coconut is a great addition to curries, cereal mixes, biscuits, muffins, cakes, and the iconic Aussie Lamington! It can be enjoyed raw or lightly toasted. 

How To Cook

Simply add coconut on top of anything you desire! Due to its fat content, it will absorb strong surrounding odours i.e. strong food aromas so ensure storage is away from potential exposure to physical damage, inorganic chemicals as well as excess humidity and temperature extremes.

Benefits

Desiccated coconut contains no cholesterol or trans fats while being rich in several essential nutrients, including dietary fiber, manganese, copper and selenium. Be aware that a 30g serving of desiccated coconut is high in saturated fat, providing over 80% of the amount of saturated fat an adult should consume daily.
