All about Coconuts: Cocos nucifera is the scientific name of common coconut. Cocos means "spectre goblin" or "grinning face" and Nucifera means "bearing nuts". This very tall palm tree is always an inviting symbol of the tropics. The coconut palm is widely distributed throughout Asia, Africa, Latin America, and the Pacific Region. Its center of origin is still under debate. However, its name was recorded in Sanskrit in early history.
The ripe fruit of the coconut palm has a hard shell covered by a fibrous outer coat and contains an edible kernel with the coconut in the center. The shell itself is lined with a layer of rich white "meat", and the hollow at the center is filled with a thin, slightly sweet liquid that can be used as a beverage. The dried meat, called copra, is then subjected to pressing or extraction. The residue is known as copra meal. People call coconut a variety of names, which reflect its usefulness to societies - Tree of Life, Tree of Abundance, Tree of heaven. Almost every part of coconut palm is used. It is a primary source of food, water, drink, purifier, fluid re-hydration, isotonic, energy, tonic, fuel, soil rejuvenator from the fiber, animal feed, and shelter. Nature provided us with a tree that produces the world's best water.
The Nutritional Values of Coconut Products: This varies according to the different stages of development. The mature coconut is a good source of iron and potassium. Approximately 86% of the calories in coconuts is from the white meat inside the shell and are from fat calories, most of which is saturated fat. But the water of the coconut contains less than 1 %. So the pure coconut water is Cholesterol Free and 99% Fat Free. Young Coconut Hearts: High in calcium and phosphorus and low in fat.
