Coconut processing

 

Coconuts are rich in nutrients and minerals, and are a choice food that keeps for a long time without deteriorating. They are almost unbreakable and filled with sugary, fresh, and sterile water.
·         Fresh coconuts contain a very wholesome food. The immature kernel is a water- and sugar-rich gel that develops inside the nut eight to nine months after fertilization.
·         Ripe coconuts, a year after fertilization, are often the only source of vegetable fat for tropical populations.
·         Coconut water, which is rich in minerals and sugars, is clear, fresh and sterile. In some regions, it is a supplementary source of drinking water.
·         Ripe kernels are eaten either fresh or processed: desiccated coconut, powdered coconut, or coconut flour.
·         Coconut milk is made by grinding the mature kernel finely, adding water, and pressing the mixture. It can be concentrated to make coconut cream – the basis for other preparations; such as coconut jam, coconut syrup, or coconut honey.
But also,
·         Palm cabbages or palm hearts are very popular. They can be added fresh to salads and cooked.
·         Coconut sap is extracted by cutting the inflorescences. It is a refreshing and nutritious drink that is rich in sugar. If left in the open, the sap ferments within a few hours to make a slightly alcoholic palm wine. A stronger spirit can also be made by distilling palm wine.

When relating to this with what have been done in the past, there is not much evidence that it is all due to this. So I seriously do not know how much help can it do, But this would certainly be worth a try though. http://smarthappybirthdaywishes.com/

We can see so many coconut trees on the seashore. But I think in those coconut trees, there will be less number of coconuts due to the high salt content in the sandy soil. Basically coconut trees are well grown in the poor sandy soils. Anyway thank you for providing such details including the information regarding pests and diseases that commonly affect the coconut trees. join us

This post on processing coconuts was much informative for me. I love adding coconut to food items while cooking as it tastes so good when coconut is added. I would like to know more on the coconut business in Nigeria. Please share more Senior Care
