Centerfuge Coconut Oil - Certified Organic
Our Centrifuged Coconut Oil is USDA Certified Organic by ICS (International Certification Services). It is made from fresh coconuts that are shelled, chopped and then gently expeller pressed. The temperatures of the coconut flesh and the resulting coconut milk emulsion are carefully monitored to insure they do not exceed 25° C or 78.8° F (room temperature). Once the coconut is shelled, it takes less than 45 minutes to produce the milk. The resulting coconut milk emulsion is then chilled slightly to 10° C (50° F) so that the oil will “pull out of solution” and separate. Next, the cooled milk, by use of a large centrifuge, is separated into a pure oil and a “skim” coconut milk. the milk is discarded and the oil is placed in drums for shipment to the US. The centrifuge works like a cream separator used for separating cream from cow’s milk. It requires quite a few passes through this chilled centrifuge to obtain pure oil, but the result is absolutely fabulous.
In performing blindfolded taste tests with a selected panel, we have now sampled over 50 different virgin coconut oils here at Wilderness Family Naturals. We initially sold a Traditional Philippine virgin coconut oil made by fermentation , then we sold a South Pacific virgin coconut oil (DME, direct microexpeller) . We have also sold certrifuged coconuts from other sources. Through the years, we have discontinued carrying these oils after finding new virgin coconut oils of higher quality. We always like to know which oils come out the winner in blindfolded taste-tests. In addition, we look at laboratory analysis data and certificates of analysis on every oil submitted to us. It is our desire to only carry the highest quality virgin coconut oils , with the longest shelf life and purest taste.
Our current centrifuged, virgin coconut oil is creamy and smooth when it is in a semi-solid state. It is completely clear like spring water when it is in a liquid state. It is pure white when it is in a solid state. It has a very mild, light coconut taste. This oil consistently rates number one every time it is taste-tested.
The one thing that sets this oil apart, even from our other oils, and definitely from all other virgin coconut oils is its high lauric acid content. Lauric acid is the fatty acid with 12 carbons in it. Most coconut oils contain 46-49% lauric acid, although some coconut oils test out as low as 42%. Our special centrifuged oil , unlike all the others, contains a whopping 57% lauric acid!! In addition, this coconut oil is higher in medium chain fatty acids than any other coconut oil we have seen (almost 75%), and it contains virtually no polyunsaturated fats.
If you are looking for a coconut oil with the highest heat stability of all coconut oils, this is the one. Standard coconut oil still contains about 6% mono-unsaturated fat and 2% polyunsaturated fat. The polyunsaturated fats are not heat stable, and the monounsaturated fats, though fairly stable can still oxidize. This Centrifuged coconut oil contains virtually no polyunsaturated fat, and half the mono-unsaturated fats when compared to other coconut oils.
This Coconut Oil Is USDA NOP Certified Organic.
About Wilderness Family Naturals
Wilderness Family Naturals is here to serve you from the pristine wilderness of Northeastern Minnesota. We are located on the North Shore of Lake Superior at the edge of the Superior National Forrest, in an untouched, unpolluted land teaming with wolves, moose, beaver and bald eagles. This area of the United States has some of the purest water and freshest air in the entire country and the soil here has never been depleted by farming or contaminated by industry. For over 20 years Ken and Annette have purposed to live clean healthy lives, believing that a diet with nutrient dense foods is key.
Initially, Wilderness Family Naturals began in the home of Ken and Annette Fischer, 20 miles from phone lines, electric lines, septic systems, indoor plumbing or plowed roads. In 2000, from the peace and quiet of the wilderness and with the help of their children, they began supplying healthy, nutrient dense foods over the internet. For the first 3 years WFN, which began as a simple family business, grew substantially as they worked to bless people with healthy foods and supplements.
Soon they were forced to move to a small town about 20 miles away where they could have UPS and US mail service and the ability to hire employees. Today, Wilderness Family Naturals is in the neighboring town of Silver Bay, MN and employs close to 30 people. It is still run by Ken and Annette Fischer; however, many wonderful people from the surrounding community come each day to help serve you.
Wilderness Family Naturals was created to help anyone who is looking for high quality, healthy food.
