About this product

This is the coconut oil which we personally use & recommend to clients. 

This beautiful oil has been sourced from an organic producer in Sri Lanka where they extract the oil within one hour of the picking of the organic coconuts. This results in the best quality, extra virgin coconut oil which we have come across. 

 


About This Product

Coconut oils can be manufactured using either fresh coconut (fabulous) or copra (not so fabulous)! Copra is basically the dried kernel (meat) of the coconut and is made by: smoke drying, sun drying, kiln drying or a combination of these three. 

The process begins when the dried copra is collected and bulked up before being exported by ship to a large industrial oil mill — often in Europe or Asia. With less than charming conditions that include unhygienic drying, humid tropical conditions and bulk shipping across long distances, the result is lengthy delays and the growth of moulds on the copra or worse – aflatoxin (toxic carcinogen) contamination!

This is all before the oil is even created!

Now, if standard copra is used as a starting material it would be in-consumable, as the unrefined coconut oil extracted from copra is not suitable for consumption due to the un-sanitary conditions. Ultimately the copra must be purified through a refining process leading to a host of other processes that must be administered before you can consume this “health food.”

The oil extracted from the dried copra flakes is subjected to; refining, bleaching, and deodorising (RBD). 

The refining of the oil process uses chemical distillation dependent on lye (sodium hydroxide potassium hydroxide) or other harsh solvents which are designed to remove free fatty acids. This process prolongs shelf life as well as creates a higher yield (return) of oil as opposed to a natural extraction method.  

High heat is used to deodorize the oil, to eliminate any taste and smell.  The refined and deodorized oil is then typically filtered through (bleaching) clays to remove impurities and bring the colour back from a light brown to white.

This is the most common way to mass-produce coconut oil, which when the oil is extracted leaves behind an oil that is odourless, colourless and tasteless.  This oil is sometimes partially hydrogenated, hydrogenated fractionated and even interesterified for a long shelf life.

At Changing Habits we now have a Coconut Oil that has all the attributes I wanted. Mainly and most importantly the oil is extracted within one hour of the picking of the organic coconuts and there is NO REFINING, DEODERISING OR BLEACHING resulting in a complete, whole and natural extra virgin coconut oil with a mild flavour and aroma

- Coconut oil contains lauric acid which can prevent the growth of pathogens like bacteria, viruses and fungi
- Boost brain function & help to prevent Alzheimer's
- Promote healthy hair, skin & nails
