Desiccated coconut

Update: 11/17/2016

Desiccated coconut is coconut meat which has been shredded or flaked and then dried to remove as much moisture as possible.
There are a number of different styles of desiccated coconut used around the world, and availability of this coconut product varies, depending on the region where one is shopping.
If desiccated coconut is not available, regular dried coconut can be used as a replacement, although dried content tends to have a higher moisture content, despite the “dried” in the name. 

One of the most common forms of desiccated coconut is an unsweetened, very powdery product which is produced by drying shredded coconut and then grinding the shreds. It is also possible to find coarser desiccated coconut, such as desiccated shreds and even flakes of coconut.

Many producers also make sweetened versions. The label should clearly specify whether or not the coconut has been sweetened.
