Virgin Coconut Oil

Virgin Coconut Oil is extracted from fresh coconut milk obtained from mature kernel of coconut by mechanical or natural means which does not lead to alteration of the nature of the oil. Virgin coconut oil can be consumed in its natural state without the need for further processing. Hence, Virgin coconut oil does not undergo chemical refining, bleaching or deodorizing.

Mandhra Virgin coconut oil is the oil extracted from coconuts without the application of heat. In the case of virgin coconut oil, the process of extraction and the raw materials should not allow any involvement of heat. In good and reputable firms that manufacture of virgin coconut oil, utmost care is taken to ensure that the raw material and the kernels (the coconut milk) are not subject to heat or sunlight, throughout the whole process.

The main difference between virgin coconut oil and regular coconut oils lies in the processes of their extraction. While the former is extracted by cold compression or cold milling of Copra with a moisture content of around six percent, the latter is extracted from coconut milk obtained from fresh coconuts. Thereafter, processes such as fermentation, churning, refrigeration, and the action of enzymes, the oil are separated from the water and moisture. In some process, this fresh coconut oil is boiled to obtain the oil by evaporating the water or moisture. In the case of virgin coconut oil, the process of extraction and the raw materials should not allow any involvement of heat.

Virgin coconut oil has a very good smell and taste since it is derived from fresh coconuts and is subjected to very low heat and sunlight. It is also not refined. This oil preserves all the natural goodness of this oil, including its high content of vitamin E and minerals.
