Philippine Virgin Coconut Oil (VCO)
February 11, 2014

We supply Virgin Coconut Oil in Bulk.

About Virgin Coconut Oil (VCO)

VCO is now getting global reputation as the healthiest and
versatile oil in the world. The Philippines is one of the best sources
of virgin coconut oil and its popularity in
the country is legendary. Although not an herb, we decided to make
an article about VCO because of the growing interest on the oil and
after receiving several inquiries from our visitors. 

Virgin coconut oil and regular coconut oil is rich in Lauric Acid,
an essential fatty acid 
that is only found in high concentrations in mothers milk. When taken internally,
Lauric Acid turns into a compound known as Monolaurin. It is this compound that
is believed to fight viral pathogens that protects the body from bacteria, viruses
and infections from parasites. Coconut oil also causes themetabolic rate to increase,
hence helps reduce weight and is safe and beneficial for diabetics. 

For many years, coconut oil has been discredited (specially in the west) because
of its highsaturated fat content. But recent studies have shown that not all 
saturated fats are the same. Themedium chain triglycerides of which
virgin coconut oil is classified, does not elevate LDL (the bad cholesterol) in our
 body compared to other polyunsaturated vegetable oils such as canola and
sunflower oil which is widely produced in the west. 

How Virgin Coconut Oil (VCO) is Made

First, the husk and the shell is removed from fresh coconuts, then the meat
of the coconut is shredded -a process called "Wet Milled", then the meat is
"Cold Pressed" to get the coconut milk without any chemicals. The milk is
then fermented in containers for a day or two. After which, oil is produced.
This oil is carefully filtered and separated from the curd. You now have what
 is called,virgin coconut oil. A more modern way of separating the oil from the
curd is through centrifugal force.
The second method of producing virgin coconut oil (VCO) is using quick dried
coconut meat and then processed in the same way. But the preferred manner
by most is still the "Wet Milled" process. 

Difference between Virgin Coconut Oil (VCO) and Regular (RBD) Coconut Oil.

RBD stands for Refined, Bleached, and Deodorized. Ordinary coconut oil usually
comes from copra - coconut meat that is dried by either smoke, kiln or placing
under the sun. Because the process itself is not sanitized, the oil must be further
refined. To get more oil from copra, chemicals are usually used. RBD process is
 required to make the oil clear, odor free and tasteless. This procedure also removes
the anti-oxidant and other properties of the oil. Some coconut oils are also
hydrogenated which increases the serum cholesterol levels and thus is bad for
the heart. 

While virgin coconut oil, being pure, unadulterated and unhydrogenated retains
its pleasant coconut taste, smell and all the health benefits of coconut oil

Much research still has to be done on the benefits of virgin coconut oil but
preliminary findings and anecdotal reports are very promising. This may well be
the much needed medicine to restore to health the ailing Philippine coconut industry.
