Desiccated Coconut sometimes known as Coconut Powder; is a dried form of granulated white coconut meat derived from freshly chosen mature coconut kernels (the white flesh inside coconuts). It has a white tint, is free-flowing. Generally, DC is considered a full fat product. However, a partially defatted product, which is a byproduct of milk extraction, is also available and is frequently referred to as "Low Fat DC." The fat level of this product varies but is normally between 45 and 55 %.
