Studies on Utilization of Coconut Flour as a Source of Cell Wall Polysaccharides

  title={Studies on Utilization of Coconut Flour as a Source of Cell Wall Polysaccharides},
  author={L.L.W.C. Yalegama and J. K. Chavan},
Coconut flour was obtained by extraction of virgin coconut oil from Komet DD 85 expeller. The residue left after virgin oil extraction was ground to obtain flour. The composition of coconut flour; moisture 3.7%, fat 13.4%, protein 21.8%, ash 5.1%, total sugars 18.8% and crude fiber 9.3%. When it was fractionated into different fibers, it contained 38.3% neutral detergent fiber. Out of this, 24.2% are acid detergent fibers, 14.0% hemicelluloses and 10.3% celluloses. The flour was defatted with…

Abstract This paper reports the prebiotic efficacy of soluble crude polysaccharides (SCP) from palm kernel cake on the growth rates and acidifying property of probiotic lactic acid bacteria (LAB),
Coconut meal: Nutraceutical importance and food industry application
The present use of coconut flour is summarized and there is an apparent need to convert the food processing byproducts into functional ingredients in order to implement their environment-friendly and efficient utilisation.
Effect of different levels of fortification of wheat flour with defatted coconut flour on the quality of fibre-enriched biscuits
Defatted coconut flour obtained from the whitish kernel residue left after the extraction of virgin coconut oil has potential application in high protein-fiber enriched food products. A study was
The effect of a complex phytase-containing enzyme preparation on the process of rye wort fermentation.
A complex of amylases, proteases, and hemicellulases is known to enhance deep conversion of polysaccharides and proteins, especially in the processing of difficult-to-ferment raw materials, such as
Effect of Supplementation with Defatted Coconut Paste on Proximate Composition, Physical and Sensory Qualities of a Maize-Based Snack
ABSTRACT This study was carried out to evaluate the effect of supplementing defatted coconut paste on the proximate composition, physical, and sensory qualities of a maize-based snack (kokoro). Maize
Effect of Coconut Flour on Biscuit Quality
ABSTRACT This study investigated the effect of coconut flour at 10, 20, 30, 40, and 50% on the physical, chemical, sensory properties, and consumer acceptance of biscuit products. Coconut flour after
Studies on preparation of fasting biscuits
The study was done to deal with the formulation of biscuits using Amaranthus paniculatus commonly known as Rajgira, an important food in Indian fasting rituals and the health benefits attributes decreasing cholesterol levels, stimulating the immune system, exerting an antitumor activity, reducing blood glucose levels and improving conditions of hypertension and anemia.

Characterisation of polysaccharides of copra meal
To investigate the polysaccharide composition of copra meal, defatted meal was treated successively by hot water extraction, delignification with sodium chlorite and protein elimination with
Development of High Fibre Biscuits Using Wheat Bran
Studies on development of high fibre soft biscuits indicated that flour could be substituted with raw wheat bran upto 30% level, as a source of dietary fibre, without affecting the overall quality.
Effect of Dietary Fiber from Coconut Kernel (Cocos nucifera) on Cholesterol Metabolism
Male Sprague-Dawley rats were fed 5% and 25% levels of coconut fiber to examine the effect of fiber on cholesterol metabolism, and there was increased cholesterogenesis in the liver, as was evident from increased incorporation of radioactive acetate into cholesterol and increased activity of β-hydroxy-β-methylglutaryl-coenzyme A reductase (HMG-CoA reduct enzyme).
