ORGANIC COCONUT, flour
Botanical Name: Cocos nucifera
Certified Organic & Fair Trade
Country of Origin: Sri Lanka / Philippines
Qualities: Desiccated coconut is simply fresh coconut meat that has been grated and dried. It is available either ground into flour or in various cut sizes (fine (aka Macaroon), medium, and large flakes) as well as different thicknesses. We call our thicker flakes “chips” and offer them in a raw, toasted, or toasted & sweetened version.
Coconut contains no cholesterol or trans fats but is pretty high in saturated fat (7g/oz) and is appreciated for a number of essential nutrients, including dietary fiber, potassium, manganese, phosphorus, iron, copper, and selenium.
Common Use: Coconut flour is delicious and can serve as a gluten-free flour substitute and often found in pie crust recipes. Try blending into smoothies for extra richness or with water to make homemade coconut milk for drinking or cooking.
Storage: Store in a sealed container in a cool, dry place. Refrigeration is recommended for products with higher fat content but is not necessary for short-term storage. Dried coconut can be frozen for long-term storage.
