In the Philippines, older generations in rural areas consumed homemade coconut oil from fresh coconuts, and thrived from a high-fat diet where coconut oil was their main dietary oil.

-made by hand by small-scale family producers in the Philippines

-the fresh coconut meat is shredded and the water from the inside is added to make coconut milk (wet-milled); then the coconut milk is allowed to sit for about half a day, while the oil naturally separates from the heavier water

-the oil is heated for a short time and filtered from the curds (coconut solids)

-no chemicals are used and the oil contains no trans fatty acids

 

-oil is not mass produced

-made by families who are coconut farmers using old-fashioned traditional methods that have been used in the Philippines for hundreds of years

-the families are trained according to GMP (Good manufacturing Practice) standards and re-certified each year
