Excerpt from Philippine Resins, Gums, Seed Oils, and Essential Oils
Copra, which is the dried meat of the coconut and the source of the coconut oil of commerce, was formerly Shipped from the Philippines in large quantities. Of late, however, there has been an extensive develo... pment of the coconut-oil industry in the Archipelago, a number of oil mills having been established in Manila and other parts of the Islands. Consequently, coconut oil is now expressed from the copra in Philippine oil mills and exported to other countries. The local commercial activities in this industry have been greatly accelerated by conditions due to the recent world con¿ict.
This development of the coconut-oil industry has naturally led to a greatly increased interest in other oils and similar products; and so it seems fitting at this time to present a bulletin giving a Short account of oils and resins which are the basis of com mercial industries or which offer promising possibilities. From the discussions given in the introduction and in connection with the various Species, it will be seen that a number of industries could be profitably developed, and that there are other new ones which are worthy of serious consideration.
