Produced to the highest standards of freshness without any heat contamination
Jimalie centrifuge Virgin Coconut Oil is cold-processed, not cold-pressed. The fresh aroma, thin consistency and light coconut taste are evidence that the oil is produced to the highest standards of freshness without any heat contamination.
What is the difference between Centrifuge and Cold Pressed extracted Virgin Coconut Oils?In the Centrifuge method the coconut milk is finely spun and the oil separates in much the same way cream separates from dairy milk. It passes through a series of centrifuges to obtain the pure oil. The temperature during the entire process is monitored to ensure it is under 44C. Centrifuge extracted oil has a mild aroma and delicate taste, due to the absence of high heat in the extraction process.
In the Cold Pressed Expeller method, ground coconut meat is passed through a hot-air dryer before being pressed, during which the dryer may heat the coconut up to 60C. The term Cold-Pressed is the final pressing method that generates heat at around 48C. The higher the temperature the stronger the aroma and taste will be, and a notably thicker consistency and slight discolouring is evident
