How to find virgin coconut oil

How to find virgin coconut oil and refined coconut oil

How to distinguish virgin coconut oil with other coconut oils on the market? What is virgin coconut oil and how coconut oil is refined? Let's find out!

Refined Coconut Oil

Most commercial grade coconut oils are made from copra. Copra is basically the dried kernel (meat) of the coconut. It can be made by: smoke drying, sun drying, or kiln drying , or derivatives or a combination of these three. If standard copra is used as a starting material, the unrefined coconut oil extracted from copra is not suitable for consumption and must be purified, that is refined. This is because the way most copra is dried is not sanitary. The standard end product made from copra is RBD coconut oil. RBD stands for refined, bleached, and deodorized. High heat is used to deodorize the oil, and the oil is typically filtered through (bleaching) clays to remove impurities. Sodium hydroxide is generally used to remove free fatty acids and prolong shelf life. This is the most common way to mass-produce coconut oil. The older way of producing refined coconut oil was through physical/mechanical refining. More modern methods also use chemical solvents to extract all the oil from the copra for higher yields.

Virgin Coconut Oil

There is no industry standard definition for "Virgin Coconut Oil" as there is in the olive oil industry for "Virgin" and "Extra Virgin" olive oil. Today, there are many coconut oils on the market that are labeled as "Virgin Coconut Oil." Tropical Traditions was the first company to publish standards for the use of "Virgin Coconut Oil" in terms of edible oils, and here is what we published over ten years ago:

Virgin Coconut Oil can only be achieved by using fresh coconut meat or what is called non-copra. Chemicals and high heating are not used in further refining, since the natural, pure coconut oil is very stable with a shelf life of several years. There are currently two main processes of manufacturing Virgin Coconut Oil:

1. Quick drying of fresh coconut meat which is then used to press out the oil. Using this method, the coconut meat is quick dried, and the oil is then pressed out via mechanical means. This is the most common type of "Virgin" or "Extra Virgin" coconut oil sold in the market today that you will find in stores. It is mass-produced. 

2. Wet-milling. With this method the oil is extracted from fresh coconut meat without drying first. "Coconut milk" is expressed first by pressing. The oil is then further separated from the water. Methods which can be used to separate the oil from the water include boiling, fermentation, refrigeration, enzymes and mechanical centrifuge. 

General characteristics of virgin coconut oil and refined coconut oil
Each coconut oil contains medium chain fatty acids, MCFA are useful and provide similar benefits .
But recommend virgin coconut oil ( virgin coconut oil ) for processing brief , unaffected by chemicals , reagents , should retain most of the fatty acids , antioxidants , reducing agents coincide ... effect of virgin coconut oil is much higher than refined coconut oil .
A common feature of both types of coconut oil is that it has high melting point . Coconut oil melts at a temperature of 76 degrees F ( 24 degrees C ) . When oil at temperatures above 24 degrees C , it is in liquid form through guidance and smell sweet smell characteristic of coconut candy . But less than 24 degrees C , it becomes solidified into a milky substance like wax . Note that this time is as good as the coconut oil in liquid form , not damaged or malfunctioning at all . When using just ladled out with a spoon or knife in warm temperatures and a bit of oil will be thawed and used . Coconut oil when frozen , kept at low temperature will last longer . That is why coconut oil when stored in the fridge will last 5 years , while coconut oil to liquid lasts from 6 months to 1 year .
Pure coconut oil is considered nutritious foods scrumptious . A pure coconut oil have good qualities have helped ease the smell . It can be used in cooking or as food , but not too strong .
When using coconut oil with beautifying function , then use pure coconut oil ( virgin coconut oil ) for high efficiency , as discussed above.
