To understand the enzymatic capacities for coconut oil extraction, three microbial isolates representing Aspergillus oryzae K1A (mold), Candida rugosa K2A (yeast), and Lactobacillus plantarum K3A (bacteria) were compared. We confirmed that all tested strains produced amylase, protease, and lypase. However, among the tested strains, K3A shows the highest activities of amylase, protease and lipase reaching 1.48 IU/ mL, 2.24 IU/mL and 2.01 Iu/ml, respectively, under the laboratorial condition. As predicted, those enzymes are related to oil extraction yielding the highest oil recovery from coconut milk as much as 23.5% (v/v).
