Organic Cold Pressed Coconut Oil
This oil is made like no others in Asia. It combines the cold pressing of freshly dried coconut flesh with centrifugation to remove fine proteins and clarify the oil.
- The fresh coconuts are opened and grated.
Then the grated coconut is dehydrated at low temperatures, drying the coconut into fresh, crisp flakes.
These flakes are then "pressed" to yield delicious oil that also contains many of the nutrients and flavors of the fresh coconut.
This oil is a bit cloudy because of the proteins and other components it contains, so it is then placed into a centrifuge to "spin out" the fine particles and clarify the oil.
Through the years the process of manufacturing virgin coconut oil has gone through many changes and innovations. Cold Pressed coconut oils, though they realize the highest yield of any of the methods of producing coconut oil, often had a toasted coconut flavor because of high heat or they became rancid tasting because of oxidized proteins that remained in the oil.
This newest manufacturing technique is outstanding. It allows for the manufacture of a raw coconut oil which does not contain any of the microscopic proteins many manufacturers still struggle to overcome. It has a mild coconut flavor and is delicious in baked goods. It is a delightfully pure oil and likely to be a favorite of those who love to eat coconut oil right off the spoon. Don't be afraid to give it a try - we believe you will be pleasantly surprised!
This oil is an excellent, high quality virgin coconut oil
made by dehydrating the flesh of the coconut and then pressing out the oil.
This virgin coconut oil rivals our Centrifuged
Oil for taste and quality, but has a slightly stronger coconut taste.
It is very popular in the Philippines.

How To Choose Virgin Coconut Oil
The Cold Pressed Virgin Coconut Oil and the
Centrifuge Extracted Virgin Coconut Oil both melt in your
mouth with a nice mild coconut flavor. Both of them have very low moisture
content and a very long shelf life.
|Neither virgin coconut oil is heated during any of the
processes. They are both made from non-hybridized, organic coconuts
harvested and processed in the Philippines and Thailand.
|Virgin Coconut Oil made by Cold
Pressing has a stronger coconut flavor than the Centrifuged
Coconut Oil, however, it also has that smooth and creamy texture you
find in Coconut Oil made by Centrifuge.
||If a mild taste is important to you, this oil has a
smooth, light but sweet coconut taste that is not over-powering. Some
people are surprised at how mild it is.
|If price is important to you, the Cold
Pressed Virgin Coconut Oil costs us less, and we pass that
savings on to you.
||If medium chain fatty acids or lauric acid is/are
important to you, then this centrifuged virgin coconut
oil will give you a higher percentage of lauric acid and
hence medium chain fatty acids than any other coconut
|There was a study done at the University of the Philippines in Manila
comparing all the different methods of manufacturing virgin
coconut oil. The doctor who heads up the study (Dr. Dayrit)
came to the conclusion, after much analytical work, that
cold-pressed virgin coconut oil had the most
trace nutrients in it. He believes it surpasses the
traditional fermentation process and the centrifuge process in quality
of those additional "nature-made biochemical's."
||If you are looking for a coconut oil with the
highest heat stability of all coconut
oils, this is the one. Most coconut oil
still contains about 6% mono-unsaturated fat and 2% polyunsaturated
fat. The polyunsaturated fats are not heat stable, and the
monounsaturated fats, though fairly stable can still oxidize. This
Centrifuged coconut oil contains virtually no
polyunsaturated fats, and half the mono-unsaturated fats when compared
to other coconut oils.
