Kokum Seed Meal

Second slide

Garcinia Indica or Kokum(called ‘bhirnda‘ or ‘bhinda‘ in Konkani, ‘murugala hannu‘ in Kannada) can be called as one of the most used ingredient in Konkani cooking. Almost every household at Goa has a Kokum tree.

The seeds of the fruit have a white colored fleshy coating on it. When the fruit becomes very ripe, its color changes to a bit transparent. The Kokum seed contains about 38 - 45% oil, which is commercially known as "Kokum butter". After extraction of Oil from seed we get De-Oil Cake, which is used as animal feed.
