Desiccated coconut is shredded, dried coconut flesh. It is available in fine and medium shreds as well as chips.
Desiccated coconut is manufactured from mature organic coconuts. To process, coconuts are de-husked, manually de-shelled, peeled, and coconut water is drained. The white meat is then washed, cut or shredded to desired fineness, and then oven-dried at 160 to 180 degrees F.
