How Our Certified Organic Centrifuged Coconut Oil Is Made
Our Centrifuged Coconut Oil is made from fresh coconuts that are shelled, chopped and then gently expeller pressed. The temperatures of the coconut flesh and the resulting coconut milk emulsion are carefully monitored to insure they do not exceed 40°C or 104°F. Once the coconut is shelled, it takes less than 45 minutes to produce the milk. The resulting coconut milk emulsion is then chilled slightly to 10° C (50° F) so that the oil will "pull out of solution" and separate. Next, the cooled milk, by use of a large centrifuge, is separated into a pure oil and a "skim" coconut milk. The milk is discarded and the oil is placed in drums for shipment to the US. The centrifuge works like a cream separator used for separating cream from cow's milk. It requires quite a few passes through this chilled centrifuge to obtain pure oil, but the result is absolutely fabulous.

Taste Testing

In performing blindfolded taste tests with a selected panel, we have now sampled over 50 different virgin coconut oils here at Wilderness Family Naturals. We initially sold a Traditional Philippine virgin coconut oil made by fermentation, then we sold a South Pacific virgin coconut oil (DME, direct microexpeller). We have also sold centrifuged coconuts from other sources. Through the years, we have discontinued carrying these oils after finding new virgin coconut oils of higher quality. We always like to know which oils come out the winner in blindfolded taste-tests. In addition, we look at laboratory analysis data and certificates of analysis on every oil submitted to us. It is our desire to only carry the highest quality virgin coconut oils, with the longest shelf life and purest taste.

Our current centrifuged, virgin coconut oil is creamy and smooth when it is in a semi-solid state. It is completely clear like spring water when it is in a liquid state. It is pure white when it is in a solid state. It has a very mild, light coconut taste. This oil consistently rates number one every time it is taste-tested. However, our Cold-Pressed Virgin Coconut Oil now rivals it. The main difference between the two oils is taste/flavor with the Cold-Pressed Virgin Coconut oil having more of a sweet coconut flavor. Those who eat coconut oil raw or in raw treats may prefer the Cold Pressed Virgin Coconut oil. Those who use coconut oil in a variety of applications for cooking may want a milder coconut flavor and prefer the Centrifuged oil. They are both wonderfully delicious oils.

The wilderness family 5 Gallon bucket of extra virgin coconut oil is the best value on the market that we have found. Do the math. When purchased in bulk like this, the unit price per ounce brings this fantastic food source down to a reasonable level. Thank you so much Wilderness family! Send us another five gallons! And did I mention indefinite shelf life?

I have been using Wilderness Family Natural's coconut oils for several years, I use it in place of butter and shortening in many recipes. The taste is fabulous, and it does excellent in all kinds of cooking: frying, baking, sauteing, roasting... I use it every day and have several friends hooked on it as well! This is far superior to coconut oils I have found in grocery stores and health food stores. Thank you!!

I tried all the other brands on the market and this is by far the best! It's smooth and creamy with no aftertaste. It literally melts in your mouth and doesn't have an overpowering coconut taste to it. Other brands have an oily aftertaste. I use it in place of butter and in all my cooking.
