Coconut, Unsweetened Flaked

Flaked unsweetened coconut is made from dehydrated coconut meat, which has been separated from the shell.  We have not seen flaked unsweetened coconut sold in supermarkets, but it is commonly sold in health food stores and by coops.  It is prone to becoming rancid, so we only buy it in sealed containers and store it in our freezer.  We use unsweetened coconut mostly for flavoring of Oriental recipes, desserts, and smoothies.  Unsweetened flaked coconut is very high in calories, with 80% coming from fat.  See the nutritional chart below.  Below is a photo of a cup of flaked unsweetened coconut showing the actual size.
