Virgin? Cold Pressed? Are all Coconut oils created equal? And what is the difference?
? One of the most frequently asked questions we get is whats the difference between VIRGIN and COLD PRESSED coconut oils.
? From a nutritional point, both cold-pressed and virgin coconut oil are almost the same… both have fatty acids which help to boost immunity and have anti-bacterial properties.
? The difference is in how they are made!
? Cold Pressed coconut oil is made from the dried coconut flesh, and virgin oil is from the coconut milk!
? You’ll notice VIRGIN CO has a much stronger aroma to the COLD PRESSED CO, but VIRGIN CO has a low smoking point making it not really suitable for high-temperature cooking.
? Instead – choose VIRGIN CO for dishes such as salad or for drizzling on warm bread ;)
? The coconut milk used to make VIRGIN CO is much higher in moisture which means this is the one you’ll want to chose to use for hair and body!
