Copra is the dried form of coconut meat. On a commercial scale, initially the firm white coconut meat of a matured coconut is processed in a hot kiln at a certain temperature to remove the moisture content from the coconut.
At this stage, the coconut becomes dry and lightly browned. This product is called the copra. Then it is deshelled from the hard outer shell of the coconut and is further treated for various uses.
Copra is the dried meat, or kernel, of the coconut. Making copra-removing the shell, breaking up, drying usually is done where the palms grow. Coconut oil is extracted traditionally by grating or grinding copra. Nowadays, the process of coconut oil extraction is done by crushing copra to produce coconut oil, and the by-product is known as cake.
