Virgin vs extra virgin vs cold pressed coconut oil
Virgin, extra virgin, and cold-pressed coconut oil are all types of coconut oil, but they differ in their production methods and quality. Virgin and extra virgin coconut oil are made from fresh coconut meat and are typically produced using mechanical means. Extra virgin coconut oil is made from the first pressing of the coconut meat and has a more intense coconut flavor and aroma. Cold-pressed coconut oil is also made using mechanical means, but without the use of heat, and is considered to be of the highest quality due to its retention of natural nutrients and flavors.
