After researching various processing methods, we selected the traditional “wet process” which has been practiced over many generations in simple home kitchens here in Cayman.
Our coconuts are processed with the use of time-saving machinery to produce oil-rich coconut milk. The coconut milk is left to settle, and the oil naturally separates and floats to the surface. The extracted oil is then gently heated to remove any remaining moisture, leaving behind our 100% Virgin Unrefined Coconut oil.
We hope to soon have our oil available at all the local supermarkets in 16 oz and 32 oz bottles. 100% of all proceeds from the sale of this product will go towards helping Caymanians struggling to recover from substance abuse.
Considered the gold standard in coconut oil, Virgin, Unrefined coconut oil has been found to have many uses and benefits:
