Deodorized coconut oil. Healthy? Kokovita coconut oil is top quality deodorized coconut oil
There are two kinds of coconut oil, the unprocessed extra virgin coconut oil and the deodorized coconut oil. The latter often being the topic of the wildest rumors. Is deodorized coconut oil, like the Kokovita coconut oil, healthy or isn’t it?
The Kokovita coconut oil is made of fresh coconuts and is of premium quality. People often think deodorized coconut oil is standard being made of coconuts that have been lying around for days, drying or even rotting in the sun. This is sometimes the case, even today. At Kokovita however, we guarantee the quality and we make sure to always use fresh coconuts.
Kokovita coconut oil; how is it made?
There are regular misunderstandings about the making of coconut oil, and especially deodorized coconut oil. One of these misunderstandings, for instance, is that rotten or moldy coconut meat is used, called copra. It may well be current practice in other companies, we‘ve also seen companies proceed in this manner. Certainly not a common practice at the Kokovita partners.
Kokovita coconut oil is made of fresh coconuts. These are pealed and subsequently the coconut pulp is pressed. This is done semi-industrially. What happens in the process? The oil is mechanically pressed from the coconut pulp. Next, the coconut oil is cleared of the coconut smell and flavor. A benefit for many. By means of steam/vacuum the oil is cleared of flavor.
What does NOT happen at Kokovita coconut oil is bleaching and refining of coconut oil. The only process Kokovita coconut oil undergoes is the deodorization. Why is this such an important difference? At Kokovita we preserve the important coconut oil nutrients, lauric acid and caprylic acid.
Buying Kokovita coconut oil is a healthy and conscious choice
From harvesting to packing, at Kokovita coconut oil the entire process is stipulated and meets the most stringent requirements.

Moreover, in order to be able to meet the 100% BIO standard, it wouldn’t even be possible to actually NOT deliver top quality. Of course we regret the way deodorized coconut oil is often portrayed..
Many other manufacturers (often in non-biological oil production) take it a step further and bleach and refine the coconut oil. Kokovita coconut oil is merely deodorized. Just that.
