Description

What is coconut oil?
Coconut oil is extracted from the flesh of the coconut. It has a slight nutty flavour and works well in both savoury and sweet dishes. It's particularly popular in vegan cooking and can replace dairy products to make pastry and creamy desserts. It has a very high smoking point when cooking and has a long shelf life.

Coconut oil whether tasteless or virgin has shown to have the following benefits (to name a few):

  • Provide a quick source of energy due to its medium chain saturated fatty acid profile (MCFA)
  • Benefit digestive disorders including irritable bowel syndrome and microbial related tummy bugs
  • Moisturises the skin & relieves flaking
  • Promotes weight loss by increasing metabolic rate
  • High smoking point of 180⁰, (unlike olive oil that forms harmful by-products when heated)
  • Prevents wrinkles, sagging skin & age spots
  • Ketones found in coconut oil may slow down & prevent Alzheimer's disease
  • Stop sugar cravings
  • Very Long Shelf Life (doesn't oxidise)
  • Supports strong bone and teeth development

Fresh organic ingredients, ambient temperatures and gentle extraction methods are used when producing
Bio-Medicals tasteless cooking coconut oil. It involves a four-stage process:

  1. The extracted coconut flesh is gently smoked, creating a seal over the flesh that prevents the surface from gaining any fungal growth. The temperature at which coconut oil begins to smoke, and its medium chain structure begins to change/be damaged is very high (180°C). The heat applied during this gentle smoking process is much less than 180°C.
  2. Once the coconut has been harvested and smoked to form copra (a word used to describe smoked coconut meat), the next step is to extract the oil. The copra is broken up, placed in huge vats, and then immersed in water. Using ambient temperatures (tropical temperatures are more than adequate, as coconut oil is a liquid at temperatures above >25°C), the oil is allowed to separate and rise to the top of the vat. The oil is then removed and the copra mechanically pressed to extract any remaining oil.
  3. The extracted oil has an orange colour and smoky flavour. Thus, the oil is pumped through diatomaceous clays to filter out the orange colour.
  4. In a very sustainable fashion, the last process is to pump the oil through carbon charcoal filters, which removes the smoked coconut flavour. The same charcoal that was created by burning the coconut shell in the first step (when smoking the coconut flesh to create copra) is used.
