Natural Coconut Oil from Kerala
We are pleased to present this authentic and natural, locally sourced and processed batch of pure coconut oil. The coconuts are sourced from local, small homesteads that are ubiquitous in Kerala. They are then sun-dried into copra. The whole batch is then sliced and diced for optimum extraction and processed using screw press machine from a local mill. We ensure that the oil is the first batch processed for the day after the machine has been cleaned and dried overnight. No solvents are used (a common practice) during the extraction. The oil is then allowed to settle in a wide mouth barrel under the sun for three days. cool in an open barrel under hygenic conditions to room tempature. It is then bottled and exposed to one whole day of sunlight. This is a common practice in Kerala to increase the shelf life without altering it’s state.
The month of Mid November to Mid Feburary is ideal for sun drying because of it’s reliable full-day sun rays. Processing copra can be hampered by even a few hours of overcast condition. The taste and shelf life of the oil is affected.
This oil is 100% edible and can be used for applications on skin as well.
A few kernels of black pepper are added as per tradition. This is known to increase shelf life.
