Desiccated Coconut

Desiccated Coconut

At Franklands Foods, we are passionate about coconut. It is such a versatile ingredient and can come in many forms such as oil, milk, water and powder – just to name a few.
Desiccated coconut is another popular coconut product both in the food manufacturing industry and also as a household pantry staple. Desiccated coconut is made from coconut flesh and is finely ground, with most of the moisture removed. The coconut flesh is dehydrated and grated without the use of preservatives, additives or sweeteners.

Wholesale desiccated coconut is commonly used in the food industry due to its delicious nutty flavour and unique blending properties. Food manufacturers can use this nutrient-packed superfood to boost the flavour and nutritional content of their muesli bars, cereals, granola, biscuits and protein balls. Our organic and conventional desiccated coconut is rich in a number of essential nutrients, including manganese, copper, and iron.

Turn Desiccated Coconut into delicious coconut butter

Did you know that desiccated coconut can be used to make a luxurious coconut butter? Perfect as a vegan alternative to regular butter, coconut butter can be used on top of pancakes, waffles, banana bread, muffins and even in smoothies.

Coconut butter is made by adding desiccated coconut to a food processor and “churning” until it turns into a creamy butter. This can take some time but the result is deliciously creamy, nutty, rich and healthy coconut butter. This recipe can also be sweetened with your choice of natural sweetener or flavoured with a natural flavouring extract.

Wholesale Desiccated Coconut perfect for vegan food manufacturing

Organic desiccated coconut is packed with nutrients and delicious in flavour, which makes it the perfect ingredient in vegan treats. Franklands organic desiccated coconut can be used to make deliciously soft and chewy vegan coconut cookies or even vegan coconut macaroons. Regular macaroons use egg white to bind the ingredients, but the combination of desiccated coconut, coconut milk and corn starch bind these macaroons together to make the perfect vegan bite-sized delights.

More and more food manufacturers are entering the growing vegan market using coconut-based products. Contact us to learn more about our organic coconut products and to place a wholesale order today.

Coconut Product Packaging : Life On A Shelf

Coconut Product Packaging : Life On A Shelf

The importance of packaging and storage for retail coconut products

The health benefits of coconut and their related products have been widely espoused over a number of years. Coconut is naturally rich in fibre and packed with many beneficial vitamins and minerals. It is important to correctly package and storage of coconut products so that the aroma, quality and freshness of the product is maintained. This helps to “lock-in” the health benefits for consumers and extends the shelf life of coconut products in a retail environment.


Coconut food packaging – Why is it important?

Food packaging plays a vital role in maintaining coconut food quality and safety during handling and transportation. It helps to protect the coconut product from the following, which could contaminate or degrade the product:

  • Harmful chemicals
  • Air
  • Moisture
  • Microorganisms
  • Leakages

Ineffective packaging can result in the coconut product spoiling after a short period of time. If packaging procedures are not completely hygienic, consumers face a risk of coming into contact with bacteria or contaminants.

The life span of food packaging begins from the point of production and packing right through to the eventual disposal by an end-user. Consumers are increasingly demanding a wide range of dry and liquid coconut products throughout the year in various package volumes. Packaging has become essential to ensure coconut products are safe for consumption, and as a way to extend the product shelf life.

One method used by Franklands to ensure the highest qualities of food safety is aseptic processing and packaging. Using this method, food is sterilised outside the container, placed in previously sterilised containers, and then sealed in an aseptic environment. This system uses ultrahigh temperature (UHT) sterilisation, which as the name suggests, is a treatment delivered at extremely high temperatures.


Coconut food storage tips

Coconut food packaging is an important element of extending the shelf life of the product – as is the correct storage of both dry and liquid foods. Franklands offers helpful tips on optimal storage methods across our range through product specification sheets. Here are some coconut storage tips:

Coconut oil – Store in a dry place at an ambient temperature, away from direct sunlight. This product will solidify and become cloudy below 25 degrees Celsius. Before dispensing, gradually thaw above the melting point.

Coconut milk – Store and transport in a clean, dry environment away from sunlight or other direct heat sources. Ideal storage temperature is 25 + 5 degrees Celsius to ensure quality, safety and stability during shelf life.

Coconut chips – Store in odour free area, out of sunlight and away from walls. Avoid storage in high moisture areas.
