Radiant Organic Cooking Coconut Oil
~ Radiant Organic Cooking Coconut oil is processed using the organically approved methods of physical extraction and refining. It is also known as RBD (refined, bleached and deodorized coconut oil) according to approved Organic Standards.
~ It is best to use in Asian stir-frying or baking at medium-high heat, or for adding a creamy texture to smoothies. It has no coconut smell or taste, so it is very suitable for bread and cake making. It provides Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCTs) for our body. It makes a gentle and effective all-over body moisturizer and deep conditioner for hair.
How it made:
Step 1 – REFINE
~ At a low temperature, the oil is physically purified as the oil is extracted. This helps to keep the FFA (free fatty acid) levels at less than 0.1%, the same levels you get from good quality virgin coconut oil. No chemicals are used. Other manufacturers use chemicals like sodium hydroxide to extract the FFA from the oil. High FFA levels are one measure of coconut oil being rancid. Have you ever smelt coconut oil and thought that it wasn’t quite right? Higher FFA levels could be the reason.
Step 2 – BLEACH
~ Edible copra is used instead of bleach. This is a new technology. Copra is another name for dried coconut flesh.
Step 3 – DEODORISE
~ This is done by using steam, which removes the odour.
