Virgin Coconut Oil (VCO) is extracted from fresh coconut meat. Processed by wet or dry method. VCO can be obtained with or without using heat. To protect oil's essential properties, the production of VCO does not undergo chemical refining, bleaching and deodorizing. VCO has a fresh natural scent, clear, and does not have the heavy taste of most oil. It has high lauric acid content. VCO is fit for consumption without the need for further processing.

The method used to produce 2one VCO is fermentation. The coconut milk is expressed from the freshly harvested coconuts is fermented for 24-36 hours. During this time, the water separates from the oil. No heat is involved and absolutely no chemicals are used in the process. The oil is as close as possible to the way nature made it with all its nutrients intact. The result is a clear virgin coconut oil that retains the distinct scent and taste of coconuts. This is considered the highest quality and the healthiest form of VCO.

2one VCO is a clear or slightly cloudy liquid at temperatures above 26°C. It forms white 'pearls' and starts to solidify as it cools. At temperatures below 22°C it is a snow white solid. This is normal. If the oil is solid, place the container in warm water to melt it or simply scoop it out.

WHY is VCO good?
VCO is good to prevent diseases because it is nature's abundant source of lauric acid. It is important to emphasize the value of lauric acid. The medium-chain fats in coconut oil are similar to fats in mother's milk and have similar nutriceutical effects. Lauric acid is the major medium fatty chain fatty acid found in VCO. Once digested, this fatty acid is transformed into monolaurin which has tremendous benefits for our bodies. The monoglyceride has antiviral, antibacterial, anti protozoal and antimicrobial that enhances the body defence mechanism.

Other amazing discoveries include the strengthening of the immune system, helping us control our weight, preventing heart disease, and acting as a efficient carrier when we are undergoing medical treatment. VCO actually prevents harmful fat from developing in our bodies. It also stops bad cholesterol from increasing, and stops blockages from forming in our blood vessels.

HOW is VCO different?
VCO is all natural and does not content any harsh chemicals. It is processed without the application of heat and chemicals. It maintains the natural flavour and nutritious content of the tropical organic coconut.
