About Organic Coconut Desiccated
Desiccated Coconut is great in all sorts of cooking, particularly Indian dishes and desserts. Popular in mueslis, granolas and trail mixes, it is also useful for adding interest to cakes, flapjacks and fruit buns. This coconut is made from organic coconuts in Sri Lanka and shredded to around 2-3mm. It has no added sugar or sulphur dioxide. This is not a raw product, it has been pasteurised at 82 ° Celsius.
Coconut is a very good source of manganese, contains no cholesterol and is very low in sodium. It is high in saturated fat, but it's not the bad stuff of trans fatty acids, it's medium chain fatty acids that are being studied for their role in raising HDL or 'good' cholesterol.
