Coconut oil is produced by drying out coconut ‘flesh’ and then crushing it & pressing it to extract the oil.
Raw (sometimes known as 'virgin') coconut oil does not undergo any extra processing, & because drying the coconut normally takes place outside in the sun for days or months, the coconuts are exposed to the air (and curious animals and insects)the oil can be contaminated by dust, moulds and bacteria & various other ‘added extras’.
Simply Coconut Oil is refined. This means that the oil is processed beyond the extraction phase to remove impurities and contamination - making it safe to eat and suitable for the young and the elderly. It also extends the keeping qualities of the oil. The refining process involves filtration & heating to a high temperature to kill fungal spores & bacteria.
The refining process also removes the distinctive coconut taste and odour so that the oil can be used for a wide variety of purposes e.g. as a moisturiser or in cooking without overpowering the flavours of the other ingredients.
