Superfoodies Desiccated Coconut

More Views


Desiccated coconut is made from the flesh of fresh coconuts that grow on the coconut palm - a tropical and subtropical tree, which thrives in coastal regions and was referred to as "Kalpa Vriksha" in ancient Sanskrit (meaning "The tree that provides all the necessities of life”). Dried at low temperatures, desiccated coconut retains an optimal number of naturally occurring nutrients, including vitamins (B vitamins and vitamin C) and the minerals, magnesium, phosphorus, manganese and potassium, and boasts an irresistibly exotic and mildly sweet, coconut flavour.

Desiccated coconut is a flexible kitchen ingredient that’s simply delicious in all manner of sweet and savoury dishes – it can be sprinkled generously over breakfast dishes, fruit salads and desserts, or used as an additional ingredient in raw chocolate, cakes and snacks, for example. And, as desiccated coconut absorbs a significant amount of water, it is an ideal natural thickening agent in your favourite smoothies, shakes and protein drinks.  

The coconut palm is an ancient plant and distant relative of the grass family that grows best in the saline soils of coastal regions. Whilst the exact origins of the coconut palm is unknown, it is believed to have come from the Philippines, where there are now more coconut trees than anywhere else in the world. Today, the coconut palm can be found growing between the latitudes of 26 degrees north and 26 degrees south, taking in the coastal regions of South and Central America, Africa, the southern coastal regions of Asia and the Polynesian and Hawaiian Islands.
