1. How is this oil different from other types of coconut oil?
Nature’s Velvet’s Virgin coconut oil is pressed from the flesh of top-quality coconuts. The oil is then filtered and packed. Nothing is added or taken away. The other types of coconut oil are referred to in the foods and cosmetics industries as “RBD”, which indicates refined, bleached and dyed. This type of oil is extracted from the dried flesh of inferior coconuts. The flesh may then me left in the sun or smoke dried. Sun dried coconut flesh (also known as copra) is exposed to flies etc. To ensure maximum yield, solvents are used to get the last remnant of oil. At this stage, the oil is smelly and discoloured, which is then bleached and dyed to get it back to white.

For a macrobiotic diet, the best oils for daily use are flaxseed, olive and sesame oil, depending on health requirements. This coconut oil is ideal for high heat frying.
