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.
