Apart from being widely used in manufacturing cosmetics goods including soaps, hair oils, and several skin care applications, coconut products are also increasingly being taken recourse to by the food manufacturers in making fried foods, smoothies, and sweets.
Coconut products are highly nutritious indeed. When the majority of fruits are high in carbohydrate, coconuts mainly tend to provide good fat .They also take in protein and a lot of other important vitamins and minerals. Simultaneously, the fact that coconuts are rich in manganese plays an important role in improving your bone health and controlling the metabolic function of cholesterol and carbs. The fruit is also high in iron and copper, which aid in creating red blood cells and selenium, an essential antioxidant that fortifies your cells.
A number of researches have been conducted and it’s revealed that coconut products heighten one’s endurance too. Coconut meats are full of medium chain fatty acids. This type of saturated fat becomes way too easier to get digested than that of animal fats. Also, according to the experts, medium chain triglycerides that are highly found in coconuts are known to boost the endurance of trained athletes.
Due to the fact that coconut oil and meats contain antimicrobial properties, regular consumption of coconut products ensures better oral health. When this can be highly helpful in inhibiting infections, the fruit also plays a significant role in averting other teeth issues too. Even though having coconut meat is not at all a replacement for suitable dental hygiene, still it can definitely help exterminate the unwanted oral bacteria, thereby ensuring the health of teeth and gums altogether and thwarting infection or cavities in the manner. Last but not the least; eating coconut meats on daily basis is also associated with burning fat and over all fat loss.
At the same time, coconut milk can go well in an array of different recipes such as soups, smoothies, fish curry, chicken curry, oatmeal, cereal porridge, and so on. There’s been a healthy trend of replacing conventional cow milk with coconut milk. Be it a healthy smoothie or a creamy soup, full fat coconut milk comes up as an exclusive choice so as to impart an exotic flavor to the recipe. Even a simple oatmeal in the breakfast can be deliciously paired with nothing but coconut milk.
As it contains powerful antioxidants and certain phenolic compounds, coconut milk works as a perfect add-on to your diet, as it aids in protecting cells from oxidative damage. Caffeic acid, salicylic acid, p-coumaric acid, and gallic acid are the main phenolic composites found in the milk. A number of laboratory tests & trials have been conducted on coconut meat and it’s revealed that the polyphenols compounds not only inhibit the oxidation of bad cholesterol, but also make sure that there is a decreased risk of potential heart diseases. Even, animal studies conducted in this regard have affirmed the fact that antioxidants present in coconut oil help fortify cells from unwanted decay and damage triggered by chemotherapy and oxidative stress.
According to Allied Market Research, the global coconut products market is anticipated to register a significant CAGR from 2019 to 2026. In the last few years, there has been a significant increase in demand for coconut oil in the cosmetics sector. Also, its popularity in several food applications has amplified like never before. Individuals have started switching their preference toward natural substitutes from sugary drinks. This is how the demand for coconut water has elevated sharply as a natural energy drink. Mainly, its nutritional properties such as electrolytes and other nutrients have intensified its demand even more.
Here, it’s worth mentioning that the outbreak of the pandemic gave way to disrupted manufacturing facilities, which in turn led to a sharp decline in the production of coconut goods & yields. Also, shortage of raw materials and dearth of skilled professionals aggravated the situation even more, thereby impacting the global coconut products market negatively, especially during the initial phase. On the other hand, as individuals grew more health conscious during the pandemic, there was a growing inclination toward healthy food products including coconut produces, which gave the market a mixed impact altogether. Finally, the global situation is getting better at a slow & steady pace and the market is expected to settle up with the losses it incurred throughout the tough time.
