Coconut production - additional information

Commonly referred to as the “tree of life”, the coconut has a wide range of uses. The coir, a natural elastic fiber taken from coconut husks, can be used to make floor mats, brushes, ropes and strings. Coconut leaves can be used to make brooms, baskets, roofing thatches and temporary sheds. Coconut lumber is used for building houses and furniture. Fuel and charcoal can be produced from husks and coconut shells. Coconut oil, coconut milk and copra are among products extracted from coconut meat. Coconut water has gained popularity over the last few years—not only as refreshment but also as a sports drink. In addition to that, coconuts have been used to create musical instruments in China, Vietnam, the Middle East and Eastern Europe. In the Philippines, alcoholic beverages are created from coconuts.

While the coconut is a staple in many households in tropical regions, it is still considered exotic by most Western countries. Agriculturists classify the coconut as a drupe which is a fruit, a nut and a seed in one. Many Asian cultures consider the coconut as a potent cure for illnesses such as nausea, rash, fever and the like. Moreover, nutritionists claim that coconuts contain naturally sterile electrolytes, high amounts of fiber, lauric acid, manganese, potassium and phosphorus.

Since 2007, about 60 million metric tons of coconuts had been produced worldwide annually. In 2015, U.S. sales of coconut milk amounted to approximately 201 million U.S. dollars. Silk and So Delicious were the best-selling refrigerated coconut milk brands in the United States in 2016.
