Abstract:

The present study was carried out to identity the volatile component in coconut milk samples using direct solvent extraction (Hexane), followed by high-vacuum distillation and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry analysis. The samples were extracted ultrasonically followed by shaking at room temperature and kept overnight at room temperature for cold extraction. Six groups of compounds consisting of alcohols, aldehydes, ketones, acids, esters, lactones, and others were identified. The major volatile compound identified in plain coconut milk were tetracontane, 2-Hexanol and the compounds such as Heptadecane, Ethanone, 1-(3-ethyloxiranyl) were identity in flavoured coconut milk. In commercial coconut milk, Pentane, 3-ethyl-2, 4-dimethyl were found to be higher value than other volatile compound.


Keywords: Coconut milk, Coconut milk processing, GC-MS analysis, Chemical component.
