View Full Version : Goya Frozen Coconut
02-28-2010, 12:15 AM
just wondering if anyone knows if Goya Frozen Coconut is raw? It comes "flake grated" or "shredded" and omg it is soo delicious and tastes so fresh. It tastes so much fresher than any whole coconuts I buy in the store. Sooo I am just wondering if anyone is aware as to whether or not it is raw.
It does not say pasteurized anywhere on the package and I think it is part of their "fruit pulp" line

Does anyone know? I would call the company but I don't have long distance calls right now! I wanted to email the company but could not find an email.
Has anyone had it before? It is so delicious. I bought a coconut at the store (the white kind of coconut--NOT young thai coconut as I can't get those near me but a hard coconut that looks just like a brown coconut but the fibrous "hair" is white instead of brown. I have found they have more water than the brown ones--I usually get well over two cups from them--and the meat is usually softer and chewier but still thick. Lately they have tasted horribly "unfresh" and when you thaw it a bit the goya shredded coconut is amazingly delicious and tastes soooo fresh its amazing. At least for someone who lives in new england. And I love coconut but the ones I have bought recently are starting to decrease my love for them, you know? So the frozen is lovely! But I don't want it if it has been pasteurized or something. Anyone know?
thanks so much!

i know that when something packaged tastes super fresh, it's because there's something in there that isn't real... there are chemicals to make things taste 'fresher'.
but i have no idea about this product.

True but the only ingredient is coconut. It's 100% coconut. I tend to have really sensitive taste buds oddly. Like I disliked the taste of a few oranges, only to find that they were irradiated. I disliked the taste of a grapefruit, only to find it had been dyed. idk I tend not to like the taste of chemicals and such and somehow can often taste the difference. So the fact that I liked this made me have hope for it. I think the reason it probably tastes fresher is because it is picked and grated straight from the coconut and frozen right after (whereas the coconuts I get at the store have probably been sitting off the tree for a long time and traveled a lot) But I guess that's why I want to find out if its raw or not lol. I know frozen food is not optimal but, until I live in a tropical region I lovve coconut and its nice to have (especially for a college student as its sometimes a challenge to get fresh raw food all the time)
The Goya website does not say how they preserve the coconut. I would imagine if it is frozen there could be a chance it is raw? Since it has no preservatives.

lol that's what I am hoping Evie! Thanks for checking out the website, I too saw that they had no info about the processing and such. I guess if no one knows I'll have to wait until I can make long distance calls sometime...and then I can call the company and find out. I know frozen fruit can be raw, and it is in their line of frozen fruits so I am hoping :)

I was able to talk to them on the phone. There are absolutely no added ingredients. the coconut is just shredded and frozen without any sort of heating or drying in the process!

Oh Good news!!
I have never had this product, but the last 2 coconuts I bought weren't good, so I might have to do a search for it. Thanks for letting us know! :)
