As we already wrote there are fundamental differences in Coconut Oil in today’s market worldwide.
A large number of coconut oil is made from copra, this is dried and processed coconut oil. Copra is dried over many days, often in not so hygienic conditions, shipped and stored for many weeks. The danger in this process is that moulds can grow on this raw material causing the oil to become rancid. The next step in this process is cleaning (refining and bleaching) this dirty oil by industrial/chemical processed, what will happen; this process destroy the natural substances of its coconut. The process often called RBB (refined, bleached, deodorized). Both high heat and chemicals are used in this method.
