Ensuring Better Taste and Colour in Coconut Milk

Coconut 720X480 Pxl

Knowing the oil content in coconut milk is important since it affects the colour and taste. A good solution for determination of oil is therefore important.

Coconut milk is the liquid that comes from the grated meat inside a brown coconut. Coconut milk is a popular food ingredient in Asia, the Caribbean and South America.

The colour and taste of Coconut milk is due to the high oil content. Knowing the oil content is therefore important and the method for measurement critical. The reference method is based on Soxhlet or hot solvent extraction in combination with gravimetric measurement. Unfortunately, it is difficult to get fast and reliable results.

OPSIS LiquidLINE can now provide solutions to reliably measure oil content in Coconut Milk, using our hot solvent extractor SoxROC. Read more about our solutions for Solutions for Oils and Syrups and/or contact us for our application Note, “LA1016 Extraction of fat in coconut milk”.
