Unsweetened & Unsulfured
Finely Shredded (aka "Fancy Shred")



Unsweetened shredded dried coconut (aka desiccated coconut) is the pastry chef coconut of choice for a wide variety of recipes.  It stores well, it’s easy to measure, and unlike the coconut in most grocery stores, it doesn’t contain added sugar or preservatives.

Store unsweetened shredded coconut in an air-tight container in a cool, dry place.

Unsweetened shredded dried coconut is quite versatile and can be used (as shreds or more finely chopped) in a huge variety of dessert recipes.  Add it to cakes, pies, cookies, macaroons, and other desserts.  It can be used as a garnish or coating as well.

For dessert applications pair coconut with ingredients like tropical fruit (passion fruit, lychees, mangos, pineapple), chocolate, milk, cream, lemon, cinnamon, green tea, rum, honey or almonds.

Because it is unsweetened, this coconut can also be used in savory dishes – try pairing it with ingredients like lemongrass, seafood (especially shrimp or lobster), cilantro, chilies, lentils, chicken, or rice.

Toasting Coconut:
To intensify its nutty flavor, coconut shreds can be briefly toasted in a thin layer in a 325˚F oven until lightly browned and fragrant.  Keep a close eye on it and shake the pan or baking dish frequently to redistribute the shreds and keep them from burning.
