Coconut is a fruit with high nutritional value in human health care and has a wide range of applications in the food and beverage industry. Nowadays, researchers have studied and produced it in the form of flour, which is much more convenient. Let’s take a look at the benefits and applications of coconut powder with PEROMA!


The scientific name of coconut is Cocos nucifera L., belonging to the Arecaceae palm family. It is a single-stemmed tree that can grow up to 30m tall with a straight trunk. Its leaves are large, single, pinnate, and concentrated at the top of the trunk. The foliage is dense, and the leaf stalks and main veins are 4-6m long. The leaflets are often twisted into a net-like structure around the trunk. The flower clusters are located on leaf axils, with male flowers above and female flowers below on the same inflorescence.

The fruit is a drupe with a shiny green outer shell, clearly displaying three ridges. The middle layer of the fruit shell consists of fibrous strands. Inside is the inner fruit shell, also known as coconut husk or coconut shell. The inner fruit shell becomes woody and has three germinal pores, often referred to as “eyes.” Inside is the edible flesh layer, called coconut meat, which is white and the edible part of the seed.

Coconut trees are closely associated with Vietnamese villages. They not only provide shade along village roads but also bring many economic, material, and health benefits to the people. Especially the fruit part, with its rich nutritional content, has many surprising effects.



Boosts immune system

Coconut water contains a mixture of B vitamins, averaging about 5%. It reduces the risk of cardiovascular diseases, prevents beriberi due to vitamin B1 deficiency. With vitamins B3 and B5, it helps lower cholesterol and triglycerides, enhances the nervous system, and fights against infectious agents. Additionally, it contains vitamins C, E, which help enhance immunity and strengthen the body’s immune system. Moreover, pure coconut oil is reported to increase white blood cells, lymphocyte B cells, and T lymphocytes, helping to regulate immunity.

Protects cardiovascular health

Due to its rich mineral ion content, especially potassium, coconut water prevents heart muscle thrombosis. According to reports, it also reduces total cholesterol, triglycerides, LDL, VLDL, increases HDL, enhances cholesterol absorption in the intestine, and prevents atherosclerosis. Extracts of polyphenols from pure coconut oil inhibit the oxidation of LDL in test tubes.

Antibacterial and antiviral

Lauric acid accounts for nearly 50% of the coconut’s fat content. Extracts from this substance destroy bacteria by breaking down their lipid membranes. Thus, it reduces conditions such as gastric ulcers, sinusitis, and urinary tract infections caused by bacteria. Monolaurin from coconut oil inhibits the growth of E. coli, P. aeruginosa, S. aureus, and C. albicans.
