Virgin coconut oil (VCO), extracted from fresh coconut meat without chemical processes is said to be the “mother of all oils”. It is rich in medium chain fatty acids, particularly lauric acid and is a treasure trove of minerals, vitamins, antioxidants.
Coconut Kernels are first disintegrated into small pieces in a Disintegrator and then fed into a screw press for milk extraction. The oil is then separated from the water using a centrifuge. The result is a clear coconut oil that retains the distinct scent and taste of coconuts.
