Abstract
India stands first in the world in terms of its wealth of palmyrah palms with a population estimated to nearly 122 million palms. The palm is found growing widely in southern states. Palmyrah palm has great economic potential and every part of the palm is useful in one way or the other. The edible palm products such as Neera obtained by tapping the inflorescences are consumed as such or converted in to edible preparations like Palm Jaggery, Palm Sugar, Palm Candy and Palm Chocolate. Another important product is Nungu which jelly like structure, Ripened fruit which is used in various foods at home level, and also Tuber is an important edible product. The products are not commercialised as the value addition in palmyrah is not standardised. Even though the palmyrah is an economically important palm it has not received proper attention from the agricultural research workers, probably on account of the fact that it is very slow growing palm found mostly in the wild state. In this context development of value added products and popularizing the same is essential. There is a need to study about existing utilization and scope of post harvest techniques for value added products.
