Potential of coconut dietary fiber


Potential of coconut dietary fiber



Indian Coconut Journal: 6, 2-7



The present work is aimed at the production of dietary fiber from underutilized coconut residue left after extraction of milk, by subjecting it to physical treatments such as water wash, hot water wash, boiling water wash and pressure cooking as well as solvent extraction. The fat content was reduced from 62 per cent to 45 per cent and to 41 per cent by treating with boiling water and pressure-cooking, respectively.
