* It is termed as virgin because it is 100% pure as in white, it does not undergo any hydrogenation or any heating process.
* It is unrefined, unbleached and has not undergone any deodorizing process.
* Unlike other coconut oil that is extracted from Copra through heat, Cold pressed VCO does not posses that latik odor, but fresh aroma of coconut oil.
* Coconut milk extracted from fresh kernel is subjected to separation process through the use of centrifuge machinery without any heating process.
* Cold Pressed VCO has longer shelf-life of more than two years.
* Virgin Coconut Oil has been called the Healthiest Dietary oil on Earth. If you’re not using coconut oil for your daily life including Cooking and body care needs, you’re missing out on one of natures most amazing health gift to mankind.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s)
1. Which oils are hazardous to our health?
Ans. Mainly, soybean oil, corn oil, safflower oil, canola, sesame oil, sunflower seed oil, palm oil and any other that are labeled as "unsaturated" or "polyunsaturated". Almond oil, which is used in many cosmetics, is also unsaturated.
2. How are these oils hazardous to our health?
Ans. Chemically, the material that makes these oils toxic is the polyunsaturated fat itself. These unsaturated oils are found in high concentrations in many plant seeds and meats that we take as food. There effects are:-
a) They get stored in our tissues when they are taken in through food. Since, these oils easily get rancid (spontaneously oxidizing) when they are warm and exposed to oxygen, they have high tendency to get oxidized as they are directly exposed to oxygen. These oxidative processes can damage enzymes and other parts of cells and especially their ability to produce energy.
b) The enzymes which break down proteins are inhibited by unsaturated fats and these enzymes are needed not only for digestion, but also for production of thyroid hormones, clot removal, immunity and the general adaptability of cells. Thyroid and progesterone are decreased. Since, the unsaturated oils block protein digestion in the stomach, we can be malnourished even while "eating well".
c) They cause Obesity and hormonal imbalance by affecting thyroid gland.
3. How do they damage the immune system?
Ans. Vegetable oil is recognized as a drug for knocking out the immune system. Vegetable oil emulsion were used to nourish cancer patients, but it was discovered that the unsaturated oils were suppressing their immune systems. The unsaturated oils directly kill white blood cells.
4. How do they cause oxidation damage?
Ans. Unsaturated oils get rancid when exposed to air; that is called oxidation and it is the same process that occurs when oil paint "dries". Free radicals are produced in the process. This process is accelerated at higher temperatures. The free radicals produced in this process react with parts of cells, such as molecules of DNA and protein and many become attached to those molecules, causing abnormalities of structure and function.
5. What oils are safe?
Ans. Coconut and olive oil are the only vegetable oils that are really safe, but butter and lamb fat, which are highly saturated is generally very safe (except when the animals have been poisoned). Coconut oil is unique in its ability to prevent weight-gain or cure obesity by stimulating metabolism. It is quickly metabolized and functions in some ways as an antioxidant. Olive oil, though it is somewhat fattening is less fattening than corn or soybean oil and contains an antioxidant which makes it protective against heart disease and cancer.eg. Israel had the world's highest incident of breast cancer when they allowed the insecticide lindane to be used in dairies and the cancer rate decreased immediately after the government prohibited its use.
6. Isn't coconut oil fattening?
Ans. Coconut oil is the least fattening of all the oils. Pig farmers tried to use it to fatten their animals but when it was added to the animal feed coconut oil made the pigs lean. The medium chain fatty acids in coconut oil are easily absorbed and put to use nourishing the body. They put little strain on the digestive system so, increase metabolic activities and provide source of energy. During this process they are packaged into lipoproteins and travel to the liver where they are converted into energy. Ordinarily others are stored to any significant as body fat.
7. Why we need oil or fat in our body?
Ans. Oil and fat are essential to our body but in right quantity and plays an important role:-
a) Lubricate our joints and intestines
b) Strengthen cell membranes
c) Nourish the skin
d) Restore fat-soluble nutrients to the tissues
e) Keeps our body warm during winter season
