Abstract: Abstract— Coconut water is a well-known natural booster which supplements essential nutrients for a person. Since ancient days coconut water has been reported to be a rich pool of vitamins, phytochemicals, and amino acids etc possessing pharmaceutical importance. The present research has high lightened on comparative study of natural coconut water and synthetic coconut water by emphasizing physicochemical properties and antimicrobial nature. The study was also conducted to compare the previous mentioned parameters at different hours and conditions. Total 5 samples were chosen for this research (Green-Immature without meat, Mature with meat), Brown shelled coconut and 2 commercial products. Based on the results all samples possess protein and calcium but there was diversity in the presence of sulphate, phosphate and acetate, where Green-mature and Mature coconut water has phosphate while sulphate and calcium has same trend as they are only absent in packed coconut water stored in room temperature. Based on the results of quantitative analysis of sample constituents like Phenolic content, ascorbic acid and Carbohydrate that were stored naturally as well as refrigerator conditions , phenolic content was decreased whereas Ascorbic acid and Carbohydrates were slightly increased in both of the condition. To evaluate the antimicrobial nature of samples , total 5 Bacteria were chosen, 4 were Gram Negative (Pseudomonas sp, Bacillus megatirium, Bacillus subtilis, E.coli) and 1 Gram Positive (Staphylococcus aureus), bases of the results the samples were reported to be negative.
Keywords: Coconut, antimicrobial, Phytochemicals.
