TREE COCONUT - a big nut to crack!
Coconut is commonly referred to as the fruit of the coconut palm. Natural palms grow in the tropics and can be as high as 30 metres. Probably the first time coconut appeared in the Philippines and from that country it was imported and sent to distant corners of the world. Coconut is a plant that is very resistant. We know that a nut can travel thousands of kilometers and spread on land. This is why we meet this fruit on different continents. The name coconut probably originated from the Spanish word coco, which describes the spectrum.
Coconut fruit and thus a nut has many applications. There are scientists who believe that this is not really a nut but a drupe. It is considered to be one of the most valuable nuts in the world. This is because a significant part of the nut will be the flesh, juice and oil. The flesh is quite fleshy and has a white colour. After drying it, a copra will be created, which consists of as much as 70% fat and, in addition, sugar and protein. The most important element of the flesh will be saturated fat, which, however, is much better assimilable than meat ingredients. The juice determined by milk or water comes from the soil. The water travels the way through the trunk and thus gets into the fruit. The water will be filtered many times on the way through the trunk, so you don't have to worry that it may be polluted to some extent. It will always be water, which many people describe as sterile.
