Marco Polo mentioned coconut in his accounts of his travels, describing it as a delicious fruit, white as milk and sweet as sugar. Also known as the “tree of life”, coconut is thought to have originated between India and Malaysia. This shredded coconut comes from coconuts grown on the island of Sri Lanka. When ripe, the coconuts are picked before being oven-dried and then grated. Desiccated coconut is a basic ingredient in Asian, African, Indian and South American cuisines, as well as virtually any and every baking. Sri Lanka provides soil and climate conditions which guaratntee its pronounced, naturally fruity taste.
