About Core Organics Fine Desiccated Coconut
Coconut is highly nutritious and rich in fiber, vitamins, and minerals. It is classified as a "functional food" because it provides many health benefits beyond its nutritional content. Coconut oil is of special interest because it possesses healing properties far beyond that of any other dietary oil and is extensively used in traditional medicine among Asian and Pacific populations. Pacific Islanders consider coconut oil to be the cure for all illness. The coconut palm is so highly valued by them as both a source of food and medicine that it is called "The Tree of Life." Only recently has modern medical science unlocked the secrets to coconut's amazing healing powers.
In baking, desiccated coconut can be added to a recipe for texture and an added coconut flavor. This coconut product is also used in the preparation of chocolates and other sweet treats, as a dusting for the outer layer. Puddings and ice cream can also be made with desiccated coconut. Cakes and cupcakes can also be sprinkled with desiccated coconut or rolled in it, and it can also be used as a dressing or garnish for savory foods.
