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.
