  • Shredded Coconut

    Has anyone been able to find a brand of shredded coconut without preservatives? All I can find at Whole Foods and Wild Oats is a coconut that is more like it is ground not shredded. Thanks!

    Organic coconut

    Since my family are farmers and I was a Clinton Presidential appointee in the USDA for 8 years, I know a great deal about food and its production. Organic food production is the fastest growing segment in agriculture.
    There is a great website: that helps locate stores, etc.

    You can purchase organic coconut at

          Did you check out Bob's Red Mill medium shredded coconut at amazon? I've never had it, but the picture makes it look shredded. It's not organic. But it's 100% all natural coconut.

            I get shredded coconut at a small local health food store. Maybe there's one near you?
