desiccated coconutCommonly used in confectionery products or a topping in most Asian dishes, desiccated coconut does not only make for a flavorsome addition to food and drinks, but it also provides several vitamins and minerals to benefit your health.

Desiccated coconut is simply flaked and dried coconut meat. When included as part of a balanced diet and active lifestyle, this coconut product helps your body produce enzymes for immune system and thyroid function, support metabolism, and maintain healthy blood pressure. It makes an ideal source of healthy fat which contains no cholesterol and is rich in selenium, fiber, copper, and manganese. (Global Resources Direct)
