Abstract
Coconut Haustorium is the germination occurred from the coconut. Coconut apples, jungle bread, coconut pearl are the other common names of coconut haustorium.

Coconut apple is best for cancer patients, cardiac patients, pregnant ladies etc. In the present study phytochemical analysis of coconut haustorium revealedthe presence of phenol, tannin, flavonoid, saponin, terpenoid, alkaloid and steroid. DPPH activity of coconut haustorium was also done by various concentration and solvent extracts. Nutrients such as total carbohydrate, protein, fat, amino acids, vitaminC, sodium, potassium and calcium were analyzed. Products such as Coconut Apple Balls, Coconut Apple Steamed Rolls, Coconut Apple Shell Cake, and Coconut Apple Halwa were prepared from coconut haustorium and sensory evaluation of the formulated products were done by 20 selected panel members and evaluated using score card.
