Sdepanian,2 Ulysses Fagundes-Neto3 Abstract Objective: To analyze the biochemical profile of coconut water from dwarf coconut palms planted in non-coastal regions, during the maturation period (sixth to ninth month). Methods: Eight of 15 coconut palms planted in a non-coastal region were selected by lots and their coconuts sent to a laboratory for extraction and analysis of the coconut water.
Coconut water from a total of 45 coconuts, from the sixth to ninth months’ maturity, were analyzed to measure glucose, electrolytes, total proteins and osmolarity and to identify the sugars contained. Results: The analysis of coconut water from the sixth to ninth month did not find any differences in the median concentrations of sodium (3 mEq-L; 2 and 3), glucose (0.6 g-L; 0.3 and 17.3) or total proteins (9 g-L; 6 and 12), but detected a reduction in the concentration of potassium (64 mEq-L; 46 and 99), calcium (6.5 mmol-L; 5 and 8.5), magnesium (8 mmol-L; 3.9 and 9.8), chloride (38.5 mEq-L; 30 and 48.7) and osmolarity (4...
