Special Handling

Extra Virgin Coconut Oil becomes solid under 26 degrees. In order to make it liquid, use a heating belt for drums or buckets or plug in the IBC to the wall overnight. The density of coconut oil is .92 in comparison to water. This means that you fit 920gs of evco in jar of 1000ml.

Industrial Applications

Virgin Coconut Oil is used to make ice cream, granola, bars, chocolates, spreads, crisps, sauces and more. It is used to fill up in jars for retail, across food service and more.

Production process

The whole coconut kernel is received at the factory. The coconut is first de-husked to remove the fiber protecting the coconut kernel. Once the shell is removed you have a coconut kernel with the skin. The skin is then peeled off by hand using a tool similar to a potato peeler. The skin is completely removed until only a white ball of fresh coconut flesh remains. The coconut is cut so that the mature coconut water sitting inside it comes out. The emptied white ball of fresh coconut flesh is then shredded and desiccated to remove all moisture from the coconut. Afterwards the dry coconut pieces known as desiccated coconut are cold pressed in an expeller at 60 degrees celcius. The oil coming out of the expeller is then filtered to remove the wax and impurities. The filtration is done three to four times until the perfect virgin coconut oil comes out. This process differs largely from the wet process using coconut milk and a centrifuge to obtain zero heat extra virgin coconut oil. Buying coconut products that are certified organic helps ensure that the local ecology and people were not put at risk from chemical fertilizers and pesticides.
