Embe Unsweetened Coconut Flakes $9.95

Are flaked and shredded coconut the same?

Turns out, they only differ in size. While shredded, unsweetened shredded coconut and coconut flakes both begin with boiled coconut, the meat is finely grated and dried for shredded products. For flakes, the meat is sliced into wider, larger shavings before being dried. The truly different option is sweetened shredded coconut, which are alternately dried and soaked in a sugar syrup until they develop their signature flavor and chew.
