Coconut Oil (Refined & Virgin)

                Coconut palms are grown widely in the coastal tracts of Kerala. Copra, the dried kernel is the chief commercial product from Coconut, which is mainly used for oil extraction. Copra normally has an oil content varying from 65 to 72 per cent. The quality of an ISO certified Coconut Oil is related to the quality of Copra we use. Oil can be extracted by smoke drying, sun drying, or kiln drying, or derivatives or a combination of these three. We use most modern technology and machineries for this purpose. It is well purified, by filtering process and perfectly refined Coconut oil is obtained. It is left for natural settling and then filtered in a filter press and then again subjected to micro filtering and thereafter transferred to storage tanks for packing. 



 Health Benefirs fo Cocnut Oil


            Natural Coconut Oil has innumerable uses. It is used as edible oil; it is an excellent moisturizer and skin softener. This makes it an ideal ingredient in several cosmetics. The Organic Coconut Oil manufactured from the fresh Coconut seeds is highly beneficial to health. Since ages, it has been recommended as hair oil. In fact, in Kerala - India food is commonly cooked in oil from the coconuts. Researchers from the medical field are studying the benefits of the organic form of unrefined coconut oil. Initial trials have confirmed that unrefined coconut oil or monolaurin has an anti-viral effect.  A minimum of 50ml of unrefined coconut oil would contain 20 to 25 grams of lauric acid, which indicates that the oil is metabolized in the body to release monolaurin which is an antibiotic and an antiviral agent. Among the saturated fatty acids, lauric acid has the maximum antiviral activity.  It is also very good massage oil. Consequently, we are in the trade of Wholesale Coconut Oil. We are among the prominent Exporters of Coconut oil.



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 and modern methods also use chemical solvents to extract all the oil from the copra for higher yields.  RBD oil is also sometimes hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated. This happens mostly in tropical climates, since the natural melting point of coconut oil is about 76 degrees F, and already naturally a solid in colder climates. Since coconut oil is mostly saturated, there is little unsaturated oil left to hydrogenate.  Hydrogenated oils contain trans fatty acids.


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."

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.

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.
