Abstract:
The objective of the present study was to investigate the variation of physicochemical properties of coconut water taken from coconuts obtained at different maturity stages. The four maturity staged considered in this study were maturity stage 1 of the developmental stage of 7 months, maturity stage 2 of the development stage of 9 months, maturity stage 3 of the development stage of 11 months and maturity stage 4 of the development stage of 13 months. Coconut water samples of each maturity stage were analysed to determine the Total soluble solids (TSS), pH, Electrical conductivity, Titratable acidity and the electrolyte concentration. It could be concluded that Total soluble solids (TSS), pH, Electrical conductivity, and the electrolyte concentration were increased with maturation of coconuts but Titratable acidity was reduced. The data were analysed by Minitab 17 statistical package.
