Desiccted Coconut Flesh - Dried Coconut

Desiccated or dehydrated coconut pulp is cut into different sizes and shapes such as: fine cut (very small) , shredded (long and thin), chips, flakes, etc. In New Zealand, desiccated coconut normally refers to fine cut.

Coconut has been the primary diet for healthy tropical islanders in the Pacific. No doubt this is a fruit that is an amazing gift from nature. Coconut is rich in fibre, Omega-6 Fatty Acids and Folate making it a spectacular nutrient in our diets. Our coconut meat is harvested fresh from organic coconut fields in Mexico and slowly dried to preserve intact all the nutrients.

More Information

The coconut tree - cocos nucifera, is a large palm growing up to 30m with large leaves leaving the trunk smooth. A tall coconut palm tree can yield up to 40 fruits per year. Botanically, the coconut fruit is a drupe, not a tree nut.

The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations has reported that coconut palm products are the single most sustainable crop in the world.

Coconut palm tree trunks and leaves serve as building material for farmers homes and produce fruit all year around. Coconut husk and shells can be used for fuel and are a source of charcoal. The roots are used as a dye, a mouthwash and a remedy for diarrhea and dysentery.

Coconut trees can coexist with cattle providing shade and humidity and shade conditions for other farm crops. Farmers can decide which coconut trees will be used for coconuts and which for tapping for sap to be used for coconut sugar and coconut nectar. Normally, a family will tap trees closer to their homes which are to be harvested twice a day.

organic coconut trees

Sourced from the tropical Pacific coast of Mexico, where tall palm trees thrive in the warm weather beside the ocean. Palm trees are a sustainable crop that gives fruit all year round.

Different from other coconut oil in the market that obtain the oil from dried coconuts, our coconut oil is extracted by pressing the fresh coconut flesh of the just-opened coconuts, yielding a fresher and creamier oil.

Some production for our bulk presentation is sourced from Philippines where the same production process is followed.
