Desiccated Fine Coconut is a fragrant and useful ingredient for your baking needs. What exactly is desiccated coconut? The flesh of coconuts is removed and dried to remove as much moisture as possible; it is then flaked thinly. Desiccated coconut is distinct by how dry it is in comparison to other forms of shredded coconut. Regardless of its dry and dense texture (like that of ground crackers), desiccated coconut retains its sweetly tropical and floral scent. Our Desiccated Fine Coconut contains no added sugar.
