Coconut meat which has been shredded (or flaked), chipped or powdered and then dried out is called desiccated coconut. It is prepared by removing natural moisture in the coconut fruit.
It has a snow white appearance with a fresh sweetness and nutty flavor. Desiccated coconut is also available in a sweetened or unsweetened, toasted or toasted sweetened variety and flaked or shredded.
Desiccated Coconuts are graded by its cutting size, for example, fine grade and medium grade where fine grade is smaller particle size than the medium grade.
One thousand nuts are expected to yield about 130kg of Desiccated Coconut. Production of Desiccated Coconut is a real hard work as the removal of coconut husk, shell and skin are done manually or given the best of current technology are done semi-automatically.
