Effect of different pre-treatments of fresh coconut kernels onsome of the quality attributes of the coconut milk extracted
 Abstract
Fresh, dehusked and shelled coconut kernels were subjected to blanching and freezing treatments andwere tested for chemical and enzymatic deterioration and yield of milk by monitoring the percentageextraction of coconut milk, free fatty acid (FFA) content, peroxide value (PV), lipase (LIP) and peroxidase(POD) activities, once each fortnight for a total period of 8 weeks. The percentage extraction of milkvaried between 31.0% and 33.5% in the blanched samples and did not show a significant changeat
> 0.05, as compared to the values at week 0. Similar observations were seen in FFA content and thePV. The LIP activity in these samples decreased to almost 0.176% liberated FFA and POD activity to0.387 Absorbance Units/g fresh-weight. In conclusion, the results indicated the efficiency of the pre-treatment in suppressing the chemical and enzymatic deterioration of coconut kernels, which normallyresults in the loss of quality of the coconut milk when extracted.
