Product Description

Organic Shredded Coconut from Food To Live® is dried and shredded to medium-sized pieces that can be used in any recipe. Bakers and chefs all over the world include this amazing ingredient in a variety of dishes ranging from soups to desserts. You can use their masterpieces for inspiration or create your own original recipes using coconut flakes and powder.

Shredded dried coconut is gluten-free, so you can use it to replace regular flour in sauces, dips, and baked goods. You can buy Food To Live® Organic Coconut and use it to make fine coconut powder at home.

Shredded coconut is a product made by shredding the ‘meat’ of raw coconut fruit and drying it. Coconut becomes desiccated when it’s almost completely free of moisture. You can also grind the crumbling pieces of Coconut into powder.
