Organic coconut oil can be produced using a wet or dry pressing method. Ciranda's Palmfruit™ brand coconut oil is pressed from the dried coconut meat for greater shelf stability.
Virgin coconut oil is pressed from shredded and dried coconut meat which is filtered and packaged. It tastes and smells like coconut. Refined coconut oil is produced from crude coconut oil that has been extracted from sun-dried copra. The oil is then deodorized, resulting in an odorless and flavor-neutral coconut oil. Both oils are white-to-pale yellow in color and solid at room temperature due to the high saturated fatty acid profile.
Organic coconut oil is used in hundreds of applications across the food, beverage, beauty, personal care, household care, nutritional and pet food industries as a versatile, shelf-stable oil. Recently it has been gaining popularity as a preferred carrier oil in cannabidiol (CBD) products. Try it in snacks, soaps, supplements and detergent, or just about anywhere else.
Fair trade coconut oil is available upon request.
