What Is Copra? How Is It Made?



What Is Copra?

Copra is the processed, dried kernel of coconut utilized in the extraction of coconut oil. Copra is used for different purposes. It is used as food as it is an important source of nutrients including proteins, vitamins, and minerals. Hot pressing the copra yields low-melting oil, and this oil can be used in cooking and as a raw material for preparing hair oils, shampoos, detergents, margarine, and more. One coconut palm nut can yield around 80-500 grams of copra.


How Is It Made?

To make copra, coconut nuts are broken open, water drained out, and the kernel is left to dry. Sun drying is just some of the methods employed to dry the kernels. The kernels are then crushed to extract oil which is then utilized for various purposes while the by-product is harnessed in supplying fodder for livestock. Copra is used for making coconut oil that is good to make into a business.
