Shredded Coconut | Ribbon Cut | Organic | Kosher - 25 Lb
- Our shredded coconut comes from coconuts across the Philippines and aren’t grown in one specific region. We find the countries best and blend them together for a result that celebrates the natural flavor and aroma of the coconut.
- We’ve found that the best coconuts grow in tropical climates where they can soak up the sun, get fresh rain and live in sandy, yet nutrient-rich soils. After the trees have lived about 10 years, they begin to produce coconuts and hit peak production around 20 years old.
- Our producers know exactly when to harvest. There’s a specific point after the outside of the coconut has turned from bright green to yellow and the inside starts changing into thick, nutrient-rich and flavorful meat. When the coconuts have transformed they are cut down individually with hooked blades attached to long pieces of bamboo.
After the coconuts are harvested they need to be washed, husked, and peeled. With the intention of utilizing all the material, we searched for and found a facility that husks all the coconuts for their fiber and saves it for various uses, clothing, tableware, etc. Use unsulfured shredded coconut in trail mixes, baked goods, and as garnishes just like sulfured shredded coconut.
