The proximate composition and mineral contents of cake samples of copra (Cocos nucifera) were determined. Mean values observed for moisture, protein, fat, and ash were 10.2, 20.6, 12.6, and 6.0 per cent, respectively. Calcium and phosphorus also gave mean values of 90 and 513 mg per 100 g sample, respectively.
