What is Unrefined Coconut Oil?
Unrefined coconut oil has been pressed at a low heat and then filtered. The low heat allows it to maintain its biologically active antioxidants and phenol compounds. Most coconut oil that is simply called refined, virgin or organic has been filtered and sometimes deodorized. Unrefined coconut oil typically has a stronger coconut flavor. Organic coconut oil comes from coconut farms that are not using chemical fertilizers and pesticides.
Advantages Over Refined Coconut Oil
Taste: Unrefined coconut oil is tastier than the refined coconut oil as it is neither bleached nor refined, so it retains its natural taste.
Flavor: Again, unrefined coconut oil has a beautiful flavor of fresh coconuts, which is absent in refined coconut oil, since it is deodorized and processed.
Nutrients: It is more nutritious than the refined variety, being unprocessed and subjected to no detrimental heat. It is richer in proteins (this is almost totally absent in refined oil), vitamins, and antioxidants.
Natural: It does not undergo any chemical processing, unlike refined coconut oil, which is treated with sodium hydroxide and bleached. So, it has that more natural touch, particularly for people who are very concerned about any artificial chemicals being put on or in their body.
