Desiccated Coconut is produced from fresh meat of white & matured coconuts, which is grinded and sieved to desired cuts and fineness. Our desiccated coconut is freshly produced upon selection of best and white coconut meat.
The production process of DC involves various steps as stated below
Fresh coconut is de-shelled and pared and white meat is taken out scraping brown skin. It is sieved and washed thoroughly to remove any foreign material and sterilized in hot water to control microbiological levels before going for further manual sorting and onto the processing line.
Hammermill is used for grinding coconut meat into small particles to get a fine and medium-grade coconut. Ground coconut is sent to the oven for drying until moisture below 3% is achieved. Hot desiccated coconut is transported on a screw conveyor over a cold water jacket for faster cooling before it falls on a sieve for final segregation of fine & medium grade.
DC reaches the packing section where it is vacuum packed into required bag sizes and stored in a cool place ready for final shipment.
