The physical and chemical properties of the oil extracted from six (6) varieties of coconut fruits were determined. The oils were brownish, some yellowish when melted, and at times white when solidified. The oils had specific gravity ranging between 0.90 and 0.92. The yield of the oil (% contents) from the ether extract was also analyzed using soxhlet extraction technique. The results showed the oil contents of 88.54% in dry samples and 69.14% in fresh samples. Result of the findings showed a… Expand

TLDR
Oil from cultivars and hybrids of coconut has significantly differed, particularly for commercially important fatty acids such as lauric acid and unsaturated fatty acids, however, coconut oil seems to have a conserved fatty acid profile, indicating the possibility of grouping cultivars on the basis of their fatty acid profiles.

Phytochemical Profiling, GC-MS Analysis and α-Amylase Inhibitory Potential of Ethanolic Extract of Cocos nucifera Linn. Endocarp.
TLDR
Ethanolic extract of C. nucifera has no haemolytic effect and its ability to effectively inhibit α-amylase may be attributed to the presence of the above probable molecules, which will be explored further. Expand
