Enumerate it

100 uses of coconut?! How can I enumerate it without duplicating words that I will say to cheat and set the uses up to one hundred. My teacher was insane (really) when I and my classmates were given assignment to list one hundred uses of coconut. Really, we'd gone nuts after submitting our homework. We're young and all we think was to play after class. So, this challenge haunted me (not in the scariest sense) for a while because I can only enumerate top ten things about the coconut-mania in the tropical Philippines, like ours. Let me recall what I've written:

1) coconut milk for cooking, by adding it as the liquid ingredient in cooking dried gabi or taro leaves (a delicacy in Bicol region, Philippines, sometimes known us 'Bicol express' if fiery red labuyo peppers were added into it, so hot)

2) coconut husk as floor polisher,is common in elementary grades in the Philippines. We were assigned as cleaners for designated days (Mondays thru Fridays) and we used to polished the floor with coconut husk .

3) coconut shells for fuel,is often used by villagers who didn't have electric or LPG (liquefied petroleum gas) as source of fuel. Even today, when we ran out of gas or LPG, I still use the coconut shells as fuel.

4) young coconut meat for snacks, the 'buko' or young coconut with succulent soft whitey and fleshy meat is often the favorite snacks in the barrio or even in the city, here in Manila. It costs 50 cents in dollar value if you happen to tour the Philippines. Try it, I'm not kidding, it's a healthy snack. If you have UTI (urinary track infection) you can drink the cool, fresh coconut water for an immediate relief.

5) coconut milk for hair spa or conditioner,is usually used by the villagers in the barrio, especially those girls who have long strands of hair. It leaves a shiny look and fresh smell to the hairs, after you squeeze some juice of lime or lemon. You hair will never look dry.

6) coconut leaves for roofing materials, are still used by farmers who cannot afford expensive roofing materials.

7) coconut timber for lumber,is more affordable than other lumber materials.

8) coconut ribs for brooms,are still used in the country, especially the street sweepers in the city. Every household have two or three sets of coconut brooms for cleaning pusposes.

9) young coconut meat for sweets (bukayo in Bicol term or Filipino term),is like tart in taste.

10) matured coconut meat for copra used in producing cooking oil,is affordable and cholesterol-free. You can make a homemade coconut oil by just letting it boil in the wok or frying pan until the liquid part became transparent.

Bonus: coconut heart (the sweet soft part of coconut timber at top part with young leaves) as viand (as in 'ubod ng niyog' ) like young artichoke.

The other 90 uses of the miracle palm tree

More and more uses of coconut are being discovered, be it medically or industrially.

Medical experts and commercial investors are cultivating these kind of palm tree to the fullest to supply the needed dextrose ingredients in many hospitals in the world. Yes, the mineral content of coconut water is now being utilized as supplement to the patients being confined in the medical wards.

Category of uses and functions of the whole coconut palm tree

1. Agricultural. It's one of the staple foods in the tropical countries. It is also one of the sources of livelihood of the farmers.

2. Medical. It's an alternative source of medicine and medical supplement as in dextrose. More and more innovation in the medical field is being done to tap the potentials of this so-called "miracle plant".

3.Industrial. The durability and cheap cost of coconut lumber makes it an alternative source in building houses.

4. Decorative. Furniture made from coconut lumber are being exported by the local furniture makers. There's a huge market demand abroad for the durability of the furniture products made from it.

5. Ornamental. Miniature coco palm trees adorn the facade of the hotels, function rooms, or the typical sala or receiving room in the residential houses.

6. Fashion. From the simple buttons to the dangling earrings, it can compete with the expensive versions of popular products that you crave in the market.

7. Beauty. From soap to shampoo, it is being commercially-made nowadays and you're using one of the brands made from it.

The future of the coconut tree depends upon the program of the local government to introduce programs to uplift the status of the industry for the benefit of the farmers. (The Philippine Coconut Authority (PCA) suffered too much controversy in the past. Farmers urge the government agency to make more positive programs that will save them from poverty.)

Have I enumerated just 10? I'll add 100 to that.

Harsha Vardhana R from Bangalore on March 19, 2014:

Hi Travelman,

Hope you are doing great. For more than 1 year, I have been using VCO and got great benefits for my brain and digestive system! I am ever grateful all folks like you who enlightened me about coconut, which is abundantly available in India!

Today I found a coconut oil mentioned as "Extracted from selected Copra" and "Vacuumized Steam Injection Cooking (VSIC)". So I feel that it hot pressed and made out of copra instead of fresh coconuts. So I believe the healing effects would be inferior to VCO.

But as VCO is quite expensive in India, I intend this VSIC oil for oil pulling etc and continue with VCO for internal consumption!

Please share your opinion on this aspect.

Regards,

Harsha

There is a Farm in India who I feel is at the cutting edge of commercial coconut production. Coming from the UK I can confirm that I personally have seen that all the 'Deejay Farm' trees have been producing +300 nuts each year. I will not lie to you these coconut tree seedlings are expensive, but I feel are well worth the cost. The Deejay palms are flowering much faster (two years) and nuts are arriving amazingly in the third year, rather than in their 5/6 year. These are Dwarf palm trees so they are easy to harvest and its all achieved threw decades of cross-pollination. There Facebook page is http://www.facebook.com/pages/Deejay-Farm-Coconut-...

and is well worth a visit.

Thank you for appreciating my work.

To write a hub is like theme-writing in school. You just have to expound your subject more here in order for other readers to find, especially @ Google search or other Search Engines.

That way, I am also earning percentage of the monetization of my articles.

In time, you'll like writing more as you observe your surroundings with topics that will also interest others.

Good luck in your studies. :)

travel_man1971

Yes sir,

I am an Indian and we are Monsoon nations in this part of Asia.

Coconut in as per Hindu Mythology called -KALPVRIKSHA means a tree offers anything to a person requests her.In India our every food stuff can not be made without coconut.

Coconut ,inside white eatable part was processed and used and mixed in jet fuel and one of gas turbine was fired on this mixed fuel,courtesy--Sir Richard Bran son ,owner of Vergine Atlantic Airlines , tried on one of his flight.

Coconut has some medical values too and utility of this fruit is wide,really you say hundred uses of coconut are more than that it has importance in Hindu's ceremonies.

We Asians should be proud of this nature's gift and do conserve it.

Ireno Alcala (author) from Bicol, Philippines on May 19, 2012:

@Michael: I don't have any information regarding buyers of coconut products from other countries, here in the Philippines.

Since, we are also a coconut-producing country, all we need is have buyers overseas.

Michael on May 15, 2012:

I have a very large coconut plantation in lagos, Nigeria and i seriously need buyers. You may contact me on the following numbers - +234 812 778 8892 or +234 805 669 9914 or send an email to microdob@yahoo.com

Ireno Alcala (author) from Bicol, Philippines on May 11, 2012:

@Harsha Vhardana R: Yes, precisely, that's what my sister is drinking (VCO), around 3 to 5 Tablespoons everyday.

She attested that it is slowly curing her hyper-acidity and insomnia.

As for myself, I do a lot of eating the sweet, fresh part of mature coconut meat while grating it for a tropical dish with coconut milk as its base for cooking.

Thanks for this additional information. It will help others realize how much they are missing if they cannot take VCO as part of their health regimen.

Harsha Vardhana R from Bangalore on May 11, 2012:

Across south India, coconut is quite extensively used in food although oil is used in cooking in a limited chunk of regions. I was just searching for equivalents of VCO in coconut quantity. I got the following info

Per day, a person is advised to consume VCO up to 50ML or 3.5 TBSP. (provides 21 g lauric fatty acis). This is equivalent to eating the meat of one half mature coconut or eating 66grams desiccated coconut (copra).

Do you have any comments on this equivalence?

Ireno Alcala (author) from Bicol, Philippines on May 11, 2012:

@Mo: Thank you for loving it. These days, as summer intensifies here in the Philippines, I used to drink coconut water in order to quench my thirst.

Coconut is a heat-saver to all Filipinos and tourists as well.

Mo on May 10, 2012:

I really really luv coconut

Ireno Alcala (author) from Bicol, Philippines on April 09, 2012:

@the girls: Thanks for reminding me, LOL! I think, I was so boozed up with 'tuba' while writing this hub (LOL!).

Yes, it's tuba in Bicol. The sweet nectar of young coconut flowers are the sources of this concoction, collected mainly in big, mature bamboo stems (cleaned and designed for gathering the coconut nectar).

It's still sweet when you drink it during the early morning but during lunchtime, it's acidity will be stronger as fermentation is already taking place.

Cheers!!!

Theresa Ventu from Los Angeles, California on March 16, 2012:

I enjoyed reading this article! Vinegar from coconut is the best for me. You forgot your favorite - fermented coconut wine (is it also tuba in Bicol?) :-)

Ireno Alcala (author) from Bicol, Philippines on March 10, 2012:

@Jenaya Isley: Wow, that's great! I hope your teacher appreciate it as much as I do.

Ireno Alcala (author) from Bicol, Philippines on March 10, 2012:

@ Diduni Dananjana: You mean 'honey' from coconut? Well. we call the coconut caramel here in Bicol, Philippines as santan.

I usually add brown cane sugar on the boiling coconut milk until it becomes sticky. It resembles like honey and can be used as desert or sweetener on your coffee.

Ireno Alcala (author) from Bicol, Philippines on March 10, 2012:

@ Harsha Vardhana R: Thanks for sharing what happened to you when you've taken VCO. It really helps.

@anerom: Or is it morena? Loved your color, LOL! No kidding!

Anyways, if you can taste my dish, chicken with malunggay in coco milk (from Bikol region) you can also compare it to the "Binakol" of Iloilo.

@vikram: How are you my friend? It's nice seeing your comment here. Say my hello to your family there in India.

Yes, I'll never loose appetite with just the coconut in my meal. I'll have plenty of dishes to enjoy with. You can also check my Tropical Cooking series, if you like.

Ireno Alcala (author) from Bicol, Philippines on February 05, 2012:

@gloria: Yes, that's true. Coconut is the best alternative when nothing edible food is available. If you're an expert in climbing it's trunk, then surely, you'll have plenty of young coconut meat to enjoy with. :D

anerom2 on January 30, 2012:

Lately, i was able to taste the native chicken sinigang placed in young coconut with meat into it. It is called "Binakol" in Iloilo, i was really amazed of the taste coz the freshness of this young coco meat added savour to the binakol. You can also eat the coco meat after eating all those chicken meat. See how useful coconut is :)
