Centrifuging fresh coconuts is Dua Dua’s benchmark process for virgin coconut oil extraction. This way prevents contamination, alteration and deterioration of the oil, and retains its freshness.
It also yields a coconut oil that’s practically the same as it exists in fresh coconut meat, with a crisp smell and taste; and lacking fermentation, acid and peroxide contamination, aflatoxin and diminution of the heat-sensitive vitamin E.
Additionally, our coconut oil has unaltered fatty acid profile and contains laurin (see below).
The Asia Pacific Community has set a standard of no more than .5% water content in the oil. Dua Dua achieves a .03% water content, well below the standard (Dua Dua’s coconuts are currently and temporarily from Thailand, as the company has been so successful that its village farm on the Solomon Islands, South Pacific, isn’t able to keep up with the demands).
And to top it all off, the entire production process from cracking the coconut to the bottling of the oil takes less than 12 hours. Talk about fresh!
Why is centrifuged coconut oil so special?
Dua Dua’s small batch, centrifuge process yields a truly raw coconut oil.
On the other hand, most commercial coconut oil producers use a dry process, where shredded coconut meat is placed in a high-heat desiccating dryer and then squeezed in a press - often yielding a waxy oil with a slightly toasty taste.
There are only a few coconut oil producers in the world who employ the precious centrifuging process. As more customers are demanding the freshness of centrifuged oil, we believe it will be the industry standard of the future!
Coconut oil for skin and other bountiful benefits
People turn to coconut oil for an array of cosmetic, cooking and health needs. You can slather it on in its pure form for a rich, refreshing moisturizer. You can gargle it for the freshest breath you’ve ever tasted, aka “oil pulling.” And you can use it nearly all cooking and baking your heart could ever desire.
Virgin coconut oil is free from trans fatty acid.* It contains medium chain triglycerides (MCTs) known as lauric acid, which is a unique type of saturated fatty acid that’s identical to a special group of fats found in human breast milk —and that has been shown to support cognitive function and a healthy weight.*
