Cold-Pressing is a process of extracting oil from oilseeds at normal temperature in a natural way without any chemical treatment. Cold-pressed oil is extracted mechanically. The temperature does not exceed room temperature. This preserves the anti-oxidant and nutrient-rich properties of oilseed.
Expeller-pressed is a mechanical process that extracts oil from seeds and nuts, at high pressure and heat, and is usually used for refined oils.
Centrifuged coconut oil is generally one of the purest and most expensive oils. During the centrifuge process, coconuts are shelled, crushed and ground into a slurry. First, the milk is extracted from the meat; then the remaining coconut is placed in a high-speed centrifuge that rapidly spins the contents. Through this spinning process, the oil is separated from the meat. Centrifuge coconut oil retains a strong coconut taste and smell and requires no further refining.
Extracted from the grated pulp of mature coconuts.
An edible oil extracted from the kernel or meat of mature coconuts harvested from the coconut palm. It has various applications. Because of its high saturated fat content, it is slow to oxidize and, thus, resistant to rancidification, lasting up to six months at 24 °C without spoiling.
Finely grated, dried, unsweetened form of coconut, obtained by drying shredded or ground kernel. It is used as a substitute to raw grated coconut in confectioneries, desserts like puddings, cookies, cakes, pastries, and other food preparations.
