There are two kinds of coconut oil, the unprocessed extra virgin coconut oil and the deodorized coconut oil. The latter often being the topic of the wildest rumors. Is deodorized coconut oil, like the Kokovita coconut oil, healthy or isn’t it?
The Kokovita coconut oil is made of fresh coconuts and is of premium quality.

At Kokovita however, we guarantee the quality and we make sure to always use fresh coconuts.
Kokovita coconut oil; how is it made?
There are quite a few misunderstandings about the process by which coconut oil and certainly deodorized coconut oil would be made. This would involve the use of rotten or moldy coconut meat, called copra.
Kokovita coconut oil is made from fresh coconuts. These are peeled and then the coconut pulp is pressed. This is done semi-industrially. The oil is pressed out of the coconut pulp with machines. After this, the coconut oil is freed from the coconut smell and taste. This is done by deodorizing the oil via steam/vacuum.
What does NOT happen with Kokovita coconut oil is that the coconut oil is bleached and refined. The only process that Kokovita coconut oil undergoes is that it is rendered odorless. Why this difference is so important? With Kokovita, the important nutrients, lauric acid and caprylic acid, of coconut oil are preserved.
