Three varieties of the coconut (Tall, Dwarf and Hybrid) were subjected to analyse for physicochemical properties of meat and nut water, Sodium (Na), Moisture %, Ash %, Calcium (Ca), Iron (Fe), Magnesium (Mg), Cobalt (Co), Potassium (K), pH, Volatile matters, Caloric value (CV) and Total dissolved solids (TDS). The chemical analysis of Meat (mature & immature stage) showed high percentage of Mg and Na in study varieties. However, it was apparent that major portion of stored Ca, Mg, and Na were… Expand

Analysis of Some Mineral Elements in Major Coconut Cultivars in Nigeria
The mineral content of different cultivars of the endosperm tissues of coconut ( Cocos nucifera Linn ) samples commonly available in some parts of Nigeria were collected and analyzed for Fe, Zn, CaExpand
Ergogenic Attributes of Young and Mature Coconut (Cocos nucifera L.) Water Based on Physical Properties, Sugars and Electrolytes Contents
ABSTRACT The present work aimed to compare the main ergogenic attributes of two commercialized stages (young and mature) of coconut water (CW) obtained from four coconut varieties. The changes ofExpand
Physico-chemical characteristics and stability aspects of coconut water and kernel at different stages of maturity
TLDR
It is indicated that coconut water and CK could serve as valuable raw materials for the preparation of functional food supplement. Expand
Composition, physicochemical properties and thermal inactivation kinetics of polyphenol oxidase and peroxidase from coconut (Cocos nucifera) water obtained from immature, mature and overly-mature coconut.
TLDR
Composition, physicochemical properties and enzyme inactivation kinetics of coconut water were compared between immature, mature and overly-mature coconuts, and Sucrose content was found to increase with maturity, and the reverse trend was observed for fructose and glucose. Expand
Potential of Immature Coconut Water and Cow Urine on the Growth of Palm Oil Seedlings in Pre-Nursery
This study aims to recognize the potential of immature coconut water and cow urine that have been fermented naturally on the growth of palm oil seedlings in the pre-nursery. This study used anExpand
Nutritional Composition and Sensory Quality of Bread Produced from Wheat Flour using Coconut Milk as Partial Substitute for Water
The use of wheat flour in combination with coconut milk in the production of bread was studied. The coconut milk was used to substitute water in different ratios of water: coconut milk, which isExpand
Phytochemistry, Antioxidant and Antimicrobial Studies of Endosperm Tissues of Cocos nucifera L
The phytochemical composition, antioxidant and antimicrobial potency of endosperm tissues of C. nucifera were investigated. The phytochemical constituents were revealed to include phenols (0.19 %),Expand
QUALITY CHARACTERISTICS OF BISCUITS PRODUCED FROM COMPOSITE FLOURS OF WHEAT, CORN, ALMONDAND COCONUT
Micronutrient deficiency is prevalent in most developing countries hence combination of food groups in the production of biscuit was investigated. Five biscuit samples were produced from flour blendsExpand
Chemistry of Tender Coconut Water from the Cuddalore Coastal Region in Tamil Nadu, India
Tender coconut water (TCW) is rich in nutrients, presenting low fat levels, and considered to be an excellent isotonic drink. To understand the chemistry of TCW, samples of TCW with 6–7 and 11–12Expand

Nutrient composition of kopyor coconuts (Cocos nucifera L.)
TLDR
The relatively high contents of sucrose, glucose, fructose, citric and malic acids might contribute to the deliciousness of kopyor meat. Expand
Changes in chemical composition of coconut (Cocos nucifera) water during maturation of the fruit
Changes in chemical composition of coconut (Cocos nucifera) water, including total and soluble solids, titratable acidity (as citric acid), turbidity, ash, lipids and sugars, were investigated inExpand
Nut water analysis as a diagnostic tool in coconut nutrition studies
TLDR
Coconut water (liquid endosperm) is used as a diagnostic tool in studies on coconut nutrition and a comparison of nut water analysis to leaf analysis showed thatNut water analysis is sensitive to Na and K, not to Ca or Mg, and is equally sensitive to P, S and Cl content. Expand
AN OPTIMIZED AND IMPROVED METHOD FOR THE IN VITRO PROPAGATION OF KIWIFRUIT (ACTINIDIA DELICIOSA) USING COCONUT WATER
TLDR
It has been noticed that both the BAP and coconut water had a synergistic effect and none of them was found able to generate the maximum response when used separately, resulting in the longer sub-culturing time and the production of highly robust plants which were able to survive under green house conditions.

TLDR
Screening for drought tolerance based on physiological parameters appears to be rapid and promising but these procedures should be further verified with long-term yield data of more forms/acc before they are widely applied. Expand
Coconut water as a rehydration fluid.
TLDR
In areas of the world where coconuts are plentiful, the advantages of sterility, availability and acceptability make coconut water theoretically feasible for the oral rehydration of patients with severe gastroenteritis when conventional fluids are unavailable. Expand
