In search of the perfectly shaped coconut product that was both organic and unsweetened, I came across this month’s feature. Coconut is such a life giving food! It has unfortunately been defiled by most manufacturers, through the use of rancid oils and sugars. Shredded coconut is abundant on the market, but flaked coconut is harder to find. There are some recipes that you can really need a flaked coconut for, thus the search. I discovered my find in an unlikely place … Homesense! However, your local health food store, or perhaps a food chain, that has an organic section may carry it.
