What is Virgin Coconut Oil?

Virgin Coconut Oil or VCO in short, is coconut oil processed from fresh coconuts. This is in contrast to the common way of processing coconut oil from crudely dried, long stored and aged coconut meat called "copra." Copra in storage accumulates two harmful elements: mold and therefore aflatoxin and rancidity (free fatty acids). Oil extracted from copra has to be treated with caustic soda, thus refined, bleached and deodorized at 400 deg F to become edible.

A continuous extracting process starting with fresh coconut results in oil that does not have aflatoxin and free fatty acids and caustic soda residues. The VCO is extracted either by fermentation of freshly extracted coconut milk or 2 hours drying and mechanical separation. The fermentation system can yield VCOthat is absolutely cold-pressed whereas the mechanical or expeller method requires the coconut to be quick-dried first at of 80 deg C temperature.
