Coconut shreds are considered a wholefood as the oil and flesh are not separated.
Raw coconut flesh is a good source of fibre and supplies a high amount of fat, mainly saturated fat with high levels of mono-unsaturates and essential fatty acids or lauric acid.
They are also a great source of manganese, phosphorus, calcium, potassium and magnesium.
