Main differences between Virgin Coconut Oil and Extra Live Virgin Coconut Oil
What Is Virgin Coconut Oil?
Virgin Coconut Oil is known as the mother of all oils as it is a treasure trove of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that imparts good health. Virgin coconut oil is the purest form prepared from fresh meat of the mature coconut and coconut milk. This extraction process may/may not require heating. But it does not involve any chemical processing that helps to retain natural qualities with the oil.
Nutritional facts of virgin coconut oil
Virgin oil is rich in various essential nutrients that help our body to grow healthy. Nutrients present in virgin coconut oil are as follows –
- Vitamin C and vitamin E
- Fatty acids – Lauric Acid or Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCTs), myristic acid, etc.
The main difference between regular and virgin coconut oil lies in the making and extraction. Virgin oil is extracted from coconut milk got from fresh coconuts. Then it undergoes several processes like fermentation, churning (centrifugal separation), refrigeration and the enzyme actions after this oil is parted from moisture.
The raw materials and process of extraction of virgin coconut oil do not allow any usage of heat. So, it is potent to take extreme care while selecting the kernel and raw ingredient coconut milk should not be exposed to heat or sunlight throughout the complete process. Sometimes virgin coconut oil is made directly by cold compression of fresh dried coconut meal called micro expelling.
Virgin coconut oil obtained by the cold compression method is considered far better than that extracted by the fermentation method. As the oil obtained by fermentation has high moisture content and can get spoiled faster. During the winter season if you need to melt the oil, take oil in a small glass and place the glass in warm water, never melt it directly on the heat.
