Product Description

Rose Coconut Shredded 1Lb

We searched the world wide to find the most delicious coconut for you. Unsulfured and all natural, our dried and flaked coconut brings an exotic taste of the tropics to your table.

Coconut (Cocos nucifera) belongs to the Palm family Arecaceae and is found growing around the world in lowland, tropical and subtropical habitats. Classed as a fruit, it is actually a one-seeded drupe. Coconut fruits are large and nearly round. The husk is hard, medium brown, and has a rough, hairy surface. Three round depressions are found on one end of the fruit. The fruit is used for its husk, white flesh, and liquid in the fruit called "milk." The fruit harvested from the coconut tree, which lives for 70 years, producing thousands of coconuts. The white flesh of the fruit is the coconut meat. The center contains a watery liquid coconut juice which is often sipped straight from the coconut. Coconut milk is made by simmering equal parts water and shredded coconut meat, then squeezing and straining the thick liquid remaining. Coconut cream is the same as coconut milk with a richer proportion of coconut to water (4 to 1).

Culinary Uses:

  • Coconut Spread is a very innovative spread and versatile. It is made by grinding the dried flesh of mature coconuts. Because the meat of the coconut is so high in oils, the result is a delicious thick paste, very similar to sesame tahini and it is shelf stable. This spread contains over 60% medium chain fatty acids known for their antibacterial, antiviral, antiparasitical and energy giving properties.
  • One medium coconut will yield 3 to 4 cups of grated meat. To extract the juice of the coconut (not to be confused with coconut milk), pierce two of the three indentations, or eyes, at one end with an icepick. An average mature coconut yields about 240ml. of coconut cream and 360ml of coconut milk.
  • Sliced or chopped coconut can be added to preparations like wadas, sambhar etc to enhance its taste.
  • Grated coconut forms the basis of South Indian cooking to make gravies, curries etc.
  • Coconut is shredded or flaked for use in baked goods or candies.
  • Coconut milk, cream, water etc are use in recipes as flavor enhancers.
  • Coconut can be used to make chutneys, podis, sweets like pongal, barfi etc.

Health Benefits:

  • Coconut is a tropical fruit that is rich in protein.
  • The meat of the coconut is very good in destroying intestinal parasites that we get from eating infected food.
  • The coconut water/juice is a nutritious refreshing drink especially for those people with kidney and urinary bladder problems. Coconut juice is highly alkaline.
  • Coconut water is rich in potassium too.
  • Coconut milk from the mature coconut is used to make Virgin Coconut Oil, VCO can help prevent and treat minor ailments.
  • Coconut meat contains lots of fat, saturated hence advisable to be had in moderate quantities. However some researches claim it to be good fat that gets utilized faster in the body and does not convert into bad cholesterol.
