HOW ITS MADE
Handpicked coconuts from the Coconut Triangle in Colombo are delivered to a central processing unit. Coconuts that do not pass a visual inspection are removed. Each coconut is de-husked, and then de-pared, leaving only the white coconut meat. The meat is fed to a conveyer belt and is shredded into three different sizes: fine, medium or large chips. The shredded meat is oven dried to reduce the moisture content to a predetermined level. After drying, the desiccated coconut passes through several sieves to reduce clumping and ensure size consistency. After visually inspecting the flakes for discoloration or other imperfections, the product passes through volt magnets and metal detectors before being packaged and shipped.
Coconut flakes & chips (desiccated coconut) are the shredded, dried meat or kernel of the mature fruit of the coconut. The flakes are unsweetened and come in three sizes: medium, fine, or large chips. Coconut flakes are a popular ingredient in desserts and other baked goods. Flakes can be sprinkled over cakes, in candy bars and make a nice ingredient in raw vegan recipes. Chips can be eaten by themselves, or sweetened and flavored.
Coconut flakes & chips are packaged in 10kg master carton boxes with inner poly lining
