Our Centrifuge Extracted Virgin Coconut Oil comes with high Lauric Acid content of upto 50%. A remarkably crystal clear virgin coconut oil that turns snow white when frozen. Centrifuge extraction of virgin coconut oil is of recent origin and gives a truly premium VCO that is far superior to that obtained by DME or Fermentation process.   The game changer in this instance is the centrifuge technology and quick processing of the raw material. From fresh coconut meat to virgin coconut oil in a matter of hours. Fully mature fresh coconuts are shelled, the testa is carefully removed and the white coconut meat is pressed to get coconut milk. This coconut milk is immediately fed into a high speed centrifuge and the virgin coconut oil is separated and repeatedly centrifuged to get the required purity. This is then micro filtered and packed in food grade plastic containers. Please note that we feed the coconut milk without delay into the centrifuge and thus do not give sufficient time for the coconut milk to ferment. This is critical for our quality.   Specifications:

Flaxseed Oil

 150.00

The oils that you use for cooking everything are extracted from seeds, fruits or vegetables and even nuts. Cold pressing is the method of oil extraction from oilseeds which may include sesame seed, sunflower seeds, canola, coconut or olive without really using heat to extract as that may degrade the oil’s flavour and nutritional quality. Cold pressing method is the process involving crushing seeds or nuts and forcing out the oil through pressure.

 

In olden times, a long cylindrical contraption known as ‘ghani’ was used to extract oil from oilseeds. Ghani was a mortar and pestle device made of stone or wood that used a perambulating animal to extract oil under pressure from oil-bearing seeds. This was the simplest method for cold pressing oils out of a seed as it didn’t involve the generation of too much heat.

 

What is available at most stores & supermarkets ?

If you are careful enough you will see different kinds of labels on your oil packaging :

“Losorb”

“Lite”

“Blanched”

“Refined”

What these words really mean is “our oil has gone through tons of chemical processes and is stripped of all it’s natural nutrients!”

 

What is Oil Refining?

Refining is a process of purification of oils. In this process, oils are robbed of naturally occurring gums, proteins, phospholipids, fine seed particles etc. This makes the oil “light/losorb”. Oils are also neutralized (acidity balanced!), bleached (stripped of color) and deodorized (devoid of it’s natural aroma). And to achieve all these the oil is heated at high temperatures and is treated with chemicals etc.

In a nutshell, modern refined cooking oils provide nothing but pure empty calories (devoid of all nutrients but fats!)

  Here’s what Oil Refining looks like :  

Why do oil companies sell Refined Oils ?

•Yield

•Shelf Life

•Price

•Modern cooking style of “deep frying”

 

Why you should move to cold pressed oils :

 

• Nutritionally Rich: Be it traditional lakdi ghana/kachchi ghani/chekku ennai or commercially prepared extra virgin oils (made using temperature controlled expeller pressing method), cold pressed oils retain most of proteins, vitamins, phosholipids, antioxidants, lecithin etc. And obtaining these essential nutrients from an all natural source is a much wiser and holistic choice than getting them from multivitamin pills.

 

• Chemical Free: During refining, various chemicals are used like Hexane, Sodium Hydroxide, Sodium Bicarbonate (baking soda), Bleaching Agents etc. And on top of that chemicals like Propyl Gallate, BHA, BHT are introduced as preservatives! Now not all of these are exactly toxic or carcinogenic , but if you are someone who is conscious about living organically and staying away from chemicals, you should consider switching back to cold pressed!

 

• Forgotten Flavors: Virgin oils, their flavor and aroma, compliments all Indian foods and the spices well. Get those forgotten flavors back into your food.

 

• Environmental Impact: You lower your carbon foot-print when you are consuming less processed things and saving the environment too.

 

• Way of Life: Cooking with cold pressed oils has been a tradition not only in India.

 

Few things to remember :

 

  Storage:

Cold pressed oils have a limited shelf life (max 6 months). You can always maximize the shelf life by storing it in the cold (think refrigeration) and dark (think non transparent bottles) places, although it is always advisable to use them up as soon as possible to reap their full nutritional benefits.

 

• Using it up :

Every time you open a bottle of any cold pressed cooking oil – use within 45days.
