Why virgin coconut oil?
Coconut oil produced from the white part of the nut is known as Virgin coconut oil – the highest quality oil – which turns liquid at 80°F. This oil contains all of the nutritional value of coconut oil, with the real taste and scent of natural coconut – a delicious taste to add to pastries, dishes and salads, or spread directly onto bread.
Coconut oil's health-promoting qualities:
Coconut oil contains medium chain saturated fatty acids which provide energy that can be readily absorbed by the body, particularly suitable for active children.
Coconut oil is also a popular cosmetic: use our pure and natural coconut oil on skin or hair to impart a glossy sheen.
Notably, most coconut oils on the market are made from a mixture called Copra made of the coconut's shell and fibers, rather than from the coconut's white part. The mixture is heated to a high temperature and the oil is pressed at high heat and high pressure. The Copra has an unpleasant odor, and therefore undergoes a process to neutralize the odor, followed by a clarification process – refined, bleached, and deodorized (RBD) – at the end of which the oil is tasteless and odorless. RBD coconut oil is also often hydrogenated, in order to raise the mass melting temperature – meaning that the oil remains in solid state even in hot climates – similar to margarine processing.
