Copra Drying

Copra is the dried meat, or dried kernel, of the coconut used to extract coconut oil. Once the oil has been extracted, the remaining coconut cake is 18-25% protein but contains so much dietary fiber that it cannot be eaten in large quantities by humans. Instead it is normally fed to animals. Picture courtesy of National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration,
