The aim of this work is to assess the biochemical properties of coconut water using standard and accepted methods; inorganic ions, total proteins, albumin, PH, specific gravity, volume, and weight. 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 in four varieties of coconuts at four stages of maturity of the fruit. Some studies suggested that coconut water can be used for intravenous rehydration. Nowadays, coconut water from immature nuts is still consumed as a refreshing drink by thousands of inhabitants of tropical regions. pdf download (english) 2008. The chemical composition and biological properties of coconut water. The wide applications of coconut water can be justified by its unique chemical composition of sugars, vitamins, minerals, amino acids and phytohormones. Physical and chemical analyzes were made, determining total acidity and alcohol content, acetic acid, higher alcohols, acetaldehyde, furfural, ethyl lactate, methanol and ethyl acetate. 67 (2) 89 and colonised the entire Pacific Ocean. Tender coconut water (TCW) is rich in nutrients, presenting low fat levels, and considered to be an excellent isotonic drink. 3,4 Other studies suggest that coconut water can be used for electrolyte replacement in a wide range of situations.5-7 Studies have compared the chemical composition of coconut water with teas, 8 still soft drinks,7 carbonated soft drinks,7,8 isotonic drinks9 To understand the chemistry of TCW, samples of TCW with 6–7 and 11–12 months of maturity were collected from the same coconut trees in different locations in the coastal Cuddalore district. Coconut water uses, composition and properties Fruits, vol. Coconut water was claimed as a rehydrate the body and give it the strength natural contender in the sports drink market and energy it needs to fight off the infection. ... identification of kinetin and kinetin riboside in coconut water pdf download (english) 2004. cocoswasser versus mineralstoffarmes wasser pdf download (german) 2003. Coconut water is one of the world’s most versatile natural product with increasing scientific evidence that support the role of coconut water in health and medicinal application. José C Jackson, André Gordon, Gavin Wizzard, Kayanne McCook, Rosa Rolle, Changes in chemical composition of coconut (Cocos nucifera) water during maturation of the fruit, Journal of the Science of Food and Agriculture, 10.1002/jsfa.1783, 84, 9, (1049-1052), (2004). This review attempts to summarise and evaluate the chemical composition and biological properties of coconut water. Coconut water contains a variety of inorganic ions (Table 1) [20,2931] and these ions contribute to the therapeutic value inherent in coconut water. The Chemical Composition and Biological Properties of Coconut (Cocos nucifera L.) Water
