Preparing Coconuts for Processing: Copra, if not properly dried, can be susceptible to harmful molds like Aspergillus flavus. These molds can produce aflatoxins that can be highly toxic if ingested.
Processing Copra Oil : Unlike other oilseeds that arrive at the mill as small seeds, copra chunks require multiple grinding steps to reduce the size of the material for processing
