Virgin coconut oil and dietary fibre technology for transfer

The Coconut Development Board and Central Food Technology Research Institute (CFTRI), Mysore have developed a technology for production of Virgin Coconut Oil and Dietary Fibre. Virgin coconut oil is made from fresh coconut meat by wet milling process (cold processing). Coconut milk is fermented and then by mechanical process, water is separated from oil. No heating or application of sunlight or dryer is done for the process. The virgin coconut oil is free from trans fatty acid, high in medium chain fats (MCFA) known as lauric acid, which is identical to special group of fats found human breast milk and also rich in vitamin-E. The technology will be transferred to entrepreneurs having a sound financial background and experience in production and marketing. Interested entrepreneurs may apply to the Board in the prescribed application form which is downloadable from the link given below. The selected entrepreneurs will be required to pay a technology transfer fee of Rs.50,000. The Board reserves the right to reject all or any of the applications received.
