Abstract. This paper deals with the technologies developed in the field of coconut research at CFTRI in the last three decades including process for desiccated coconut, technology development for the production of spray dried coconut milk powder, wet processing of coconut, vinegar generation from coconut water, virgin coconut oil, tender coconut based beverage, coconut spread etc. CFTRI is in forefront in developing technologies for coconut-based products. Some of these technologies have been successfully transferred and most of the produce is being exported. Our current research efforts are focused on production of low fat dietary fiber from coconut residue after the milk extraction, concentration of coconut water by membrane processing, preservation of coconut water by emerging technologies will also be discussed.
