Before discussing Amerta Coco Indonesia, let’s get to know what dessicated coconut is. Dessicated coconut (DC) or coconut flour is the result of processing coconut which is mashed by chopping or shredding it without adding other ingredients and then drying it hygienically.
The nutritional value of DC is quite high and resembles coconut in general. Starting from the content of fat, protein fiber, vitamins and minerals can be obtained from DC. The nutritional content is certainly good for the body to fulfill daily nutrition, friends of Amerta Coco.
Then how is the DC creation process?
In making DC, what you have to do is peel the coconut fruit and clean it from the brown skin to get the flesh. The white coconut meat is then cleaned and washed with clean water. After washing, the coconut meat is inspected to maintain its quality.
The coconut meat that has been cleaned is shredded in the first stage with a grinder machine and pressed with a pressing machine to obtain coconut milk and dregs. This pressed pulp is used as raw material for dry coconut. The waste is then passed in a screw equipped with hot steam which functions to kill pathogenic microbes.
After that the dregs are dried in a drying machine and followed by final grinding to produce dry grated coconut. Desiccated coconut (DC) is desiccated coconut (DC), which is sieved by a machine consisting of several layers of different sizes of sieve to obtain a DC particle size according to customer demand.
After the sieving process is complete, the dry grated coconut is packed and will be passed to a metal detector before being released to the warehouse.
