Desiccated Coconut is coconut meat that has been grated and dried. Available sweetened or unsweetened, it is commonly used as a topping for curries or other Asian dishes, as an ingredient in cooked cereal or granola, and in baked goods.

Desiccated Coconut contains no cholesterol or trans fats, and is rich in a number of essential nutrients, including dietary fiber, manganese, copper and selenium. A 1-ounce serving of Desiccated Coconut is high in saturated fat, providing over 80 percent of the amount of saturated fat an adult should consume daily.

For those concerned for their fat intake, Desiccated Coconut can be safely included in occasional meals if the diet is primarily focused on lean proteins, whole grains and fresh fruits and vegetables.

Health benefits of coconut

Coconut is a very versatile and indispensable food item for most people within the tropical belt. It is a complete food rich in calories, vitamins, and minerals. A medium-size nut carrying 400g edible meat and some 30-150 ml of water may provide almost all the daily-required essential minerals, vitamins, and energy for an average-sized adult.

A 100 g kernel consists of 354 calories. Much of this comes from fats and protein. Although the meat is disproportionately high in saturated fats on comparison to other common edible nuts, Coconut has many bioactive compounds that are essential for better health.

The important saturated fatty acid in the Coconut is lauric acid (1:12 carbon fatty acid). Lauric acid increases good-HDL cholesterol levels in the blood. HDL is a high-density lipoprotein, which has beneficial effects on the coronary arteries by preventing vessel blockade (atherosclerosis). Physicians recommend high HDL to total cholesterol levels in the blood.
