Organic Small Coconut Flakes
Who doesn’t love the taste of coconut? One of life’s simple pleasures, coconut flakes are so delicious that they’re tempting to eat all by themselves.
If you’re looking to buy organic coconut flakes, you may think that there’s no difference between the coconut you buy from your local grocery store and Wildly Organic’s offering. However, our family-owned company takes pride in sourcing and processing our coconut in the most responsible way possible. The result is a shredded coconut that has a light, crisp texture that’s melt-in-your-mouth delicious.
How Does Wildly Organic Create Our Coconut Flakes?
We worked for a great length of time to develop a natural, dried coconut that we could still call "raw." We are excited to offer a low-temperature dehydrated coconut with an absolutely delectable taste.
We start with wild coconuts. The coconut is removed from the shells and washed in pure, filtered water (no chlorine is present). The coconut is then shredded and slowly dehydrated at 98.6°F (37°C). The resulting shredded, raw coconut tastes great, has a wonderful texture, and contains the nutrients found in coconut.
Most shredded, dried coconut available online and in health food stores is actually desiccated coconut. Chlorinated water is used to clean and sterilize the coconuts once they are opened and peeled. The coconut meat is grated, often lightly pressed to remove some of the milk (moisture) and then it is dried in huge ovens at temperatures between 170°-180°F (76°-82°C). Shredded coconut sold in grocery stores comes from this desiccated coconut soaked in corn syrup, propylene glycol, and sodium metabisulfite to preserve it.
There is a huge difference between raw dehydrated coconut and most store-bought sweetened coconut flakes. Take a look at the ingredient list of our organic coconut and you’ll find only one ingredient: organic coconut. That’s the Wildly Organic difference!
How Can You Use Our Organic Coconut Flakes?
Wildly Organic small coconut flakes are about the size of white rice. Many people find these work well for macaroons, coatings, and cookies or they can be used in place of large coconut shreds. This substitute works in most recipes, especially if you want a more substantial coconut texture and flavor, but do not want too much chewiness.
Our raw coconut flakes are great in trail mixes, numerous raw desserts, cookies, or great to snack on all by themselves. Yogurt, smoothies, cereal, and oatmeal are also tasty foods to add your coconut flakes to. However you end up using your flakes, you’ll fall in love with their deliciously pure flavor.
We also offer raw, unsweetened dehydrated coconut in fine and small sizes, as well as coconut chips. We even have bulk shredded coconut available in larger quantities if you need. If you have any questions about our coconut products, please contact us today so we can help.
