Snow Ball Tender Nut


Snow ball tender nut is a delicate coconut with no husk, shell, or testa that is round, soft, and white in color. Snow ball sensitive nut can be made with an 8-month-old coconut. Inserting a straw into the top white tender coconut kernel allows you to drink the tender coconut water. A snow ball nut machine invented by the Central Plantation Crops Research Institute (CPCRI) in Kasaragod, Kerala, is used to create a groove in the shell. The snow ball is scooped out of the shell by putting a scooping instrument between the tender kernel and the shell. Because the sensitive coconut water is not exposed to the atmosphere, it preserves its sterility. If the sensitive nut is separately packed and chilled under hygienic circumstances, the shelf life can be extended to more than 10 days.

Snowball tender nut has this health benefit:

  1. May lower bad cholesterol.
    The saturated fat present in coconut flesh aids in lowering unhealthy cholesterol levels by boosting the quantity of beneficial cholesterol. This particular type of saturated fat found in coconuts is easily metabolized, thus it doesn't induce symptoms associated with elevated cholesterol levels.
  2. Aids the digestive process.
    The fiber from young coconuts can help the digestive process and be a good diet for weight loss.
  3. Produces red blood cells.
    The advantages of young coconut meat closely resemble those of coconut water. The flesh of the coconut is recognized for its content of sodium, potassium, fiber, and B vitamins, all of which contribute significantly to the production of red blood cells.
  4. Protects cells against free radicals.
    Consuming coconut meat, rich in antioxidants, can help alleviate bloating, prevent weight gain, and detoxify the body
