How to Choose the Best Coconut Oil

With so many brands of coconut oil out there using so many different names to describe how it’s made, trying to decode the label to understand what is really inside the jar can sometimes leave you feeling like your navigating your way through a maze.

So here is everything that you need to know about how coconut oil is produced. So you can see for yourself why our Fresh Centrifuged Technology produces a top quality coconut oil that makes CoccoMio stand out from the rest.

If coconuts were olives

In the world of Olive Oil, life is simple. You have Refined Olive Oil and Unrefined Olive Oil which has 2 qualities, Virgin and Extra Virgin.

Everyone knows that a bottle of Extra Virgin Olive Oil will cost more, but you are assured that you are getting a premium quality Olive Oil because it has been taste tested and approved by the International Olive Council.

In the world of Coconut Oil, life is not so simple. Sure, you’ll find plenty of brands that love to tell you that their Coconut Oil is Extra Virgin, but the truth is, there is no such thing!

The only thing Extra about Extra Virgin Coconut Oil is some Extra marketing to get your attention.

So how can you choose the best Coconut Oil?

When it comes to Coconut Oil, there is Refined Coconut Oil and Unrefined Coconut Oil.

Refined Coconut Oil is made with the use of solvents. Either in the extraction or the purification process.

As solvents are used to extract the coconut oil, the coconut meat used is generally of very poor quality.

Unrefined Coconut Oil is made by mechanically extracting the coconut oil with the use of a Press, Mill or Expeller.

What makes a the best coconut oil is determined by what goes into the press and I’m not talking about the quality of the coconut, which goes without saying. The difference is whether you do a dry-press or wet-press.

Dry-Press Coconut Oil

Most of the unrefined coconut oil on the market is made by pressing dry coconut meat and it is sold under many different names; Virgin, Extra Virgin, Cold-Pressed, First Press and even Raw.

Whether the coconut meat was dried in an oven at 80˚c or left out in the field to dry in the sun, this drying process can damage the nutrients and create a strong sweet “Coconutty” taste and smell.

Wet-Press Coconut Oil

Wet-Pressed, also known as Wet-Milled Coconut Oil is made by pressing fresh wet coconut meat straight from the tree.

When you press fresh wet coconut meat straight from the shell, you get a milk and oil mixture.

If you get Coconut Oil straight from the press, the coconut meat must be dry or you’ll get milk.

To separate the milk from the oil you can use the Fermentation Method or Fresh Centrifuged Technology.

Fermentation Method involves adding enzymes to the milk and oil mixture. When the milk ferments, it will separate from the oil and the coconut oil is then collected.

Fresh Centrifuged Technology, which is the method that we prefer, the milk and oil mixture is spun in a centrifuge to separate the milk from the Coconut Oil.

Using our Fresh Centrifuged Technology along with our 48hr tree to jar – 2hr nut to oil Farm Fresh Guarantee, we produce some of the freshest and best coconut oil you can buy.

We generate 4x more antioxidants than dry-pressed coconut oil and we capture the fresh mild delicate taste and light aroma of freshly harvested coconuts.
This is pure organic virgin coconut oil in its raw, natural and freshest form.

CoccoMio, we’re just nuts about coconut and only the best will do!
