Cocolicious VCO Characteristics

Characteristics of Cocolicious VCO

1. Is there a difference between Virgin and Extra Virgin Coconut Oil?

There really is no difference in terms of overall contents of its fatty acids. The lauric acid content has more or less the same content in  pure coconut oil. The use of extra virgin for coconut oil is not yet defined by any industry or national standards. It is used loosely by marketers as it suits them.

2. What is the difference between virgin coconut oil and MCT Oil or Liquid coconut oil?

They are very different. To start with virgin coconut oil is an all natural food and has the most lauric content 45-50%. MCT Oil and liquid coconut oil are synthesized oils using coconut as raw material but they don’t use all the contents only fractions that pure coconut oil has to offer. Their lauric acid content is 30% or less. Please check this link for more info

3. How does the taste of Cocolicious taste compare with other brands?

The reason that our VCO may have a “raw” taste from other brands in the market is how it is processed. 

Our VCO uses the wet process using the centrifugation method where heat drying is not used. The wet process method extracts the VCO unrefined. 
The raw taste comes from the lauric acid which is not masked by the release of the aromatic compounds of the VCO produced by drying method. 

However, whether VCO is produced by wet or dry process the lauric acid content in both remains the same.
