What is Coconut Oil?
Coconut oil is extracted from coconut copra, it is a kind of white or faint yellow fat. Copra content 65%-74% oil and 4%-7% moisture. Coconut tree grow at tropical zone island or mainland coastwise.
Coconut oil is a kind of special midchain saturated fat, which is same as breast nursing.
Common oil take 26 steps to resolve, while coconut oil takes only 3 steps, so it can be quickly translated to energy and will not store in the body. Plenty of research have confirmed the advantages of coconut oil. With effects of antibacterial, anti-oxidant, anti-viral, It can be widely used in food manufacturing, pharmaceuticals and industry.
Nutritional Ingredient of Cold Pressed Coconut Oil
Every 100 grams of coconut oil contains about 820-870 kcal calorie, 0 grams of carbohydrates, 90 grams – 99 grams of fat, of which more than 80% are saturated fat.
1. Lauric acid: Lauric acid is one of the ingredients in breast nursing and a natural antibiotic. It is considered to be an excellent nutrient for improving the immunity of infants and young children. The lauric acid content in coconut oil is nearly 50%.
2. Palmitic acid: can help balance the body’s calcium and phosphate minerals
3. Linoleic acid: a natural emollient
4. Citrate: has a good moisturizing effect
Functions of Cold Pressed Coconut Oil
Coconut oil is a fat composed of medium-chain fatty acids, and medium-chain fatty acids have a natural comprehensive antibacterial ability, which can kill bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites that cause diseases. It can be used to treat neurodermatitis and scabies, frostbite, etc.
Coconut oil has a strong exclusiveness on toxins, and it can play a role in excreting toxins accumulated in the intestines, stomach and other parts of the body.
Coconut oil is a saturated fat with stable lipids and strong antioxidant capacity to prevent free radicals. Moreover, the external use of coconut oil can moisturize the skin, adjust the secretion of sebaceous glands, improve the dry skin, and help eliminate wrinkles, acne, dandruff and so on. It also soothes cracks in the lips, frostbite, insolation, diaper rash and gingivitis. It can be used as a cleansing oil or as a skin care oil. External application can protect the skin from UV rays.
4. Lose Weight
Coconut oil is a medium-chain fatty acid, which is relatively easy to burn. It can increase the burning rate of calories and is easy to help slim down.
Coconut oil, as a saturated fatty acid, acts as an antioxidant and can be used to treat children rickets, adults osteoporosis, and protect bones from free radical damage.
6. Promote Digestion and Absorption
Compared with other edible oils, coconut oil is more easily hydrolyzed, easy to be digested and absorbed, suitable for digestive disorders and weak physical consumption; and people like cholecystectomy, cholecystitis, gallstones, pancreatitis and others can also eat coconut oil.
7. Improve Immunity
The main component of coconut oil, lauric acid, can improve the body’s immunity, and is suitable for children, the elderly and those who are weak and resistant to infection.
8. Physical Recovery
Coconut oil can quickly provide energy and nutrient sources, help restore physical strength, and also has the effect of making people less prone to fatigue. People who lack energy or are often tired can eat coconut oil to help improve their energy.
9. Eliminate Stretch Marks
Coconut oil can penetrate into the skin through the pores, thus clearing the deep layers of the skin and helping the body to metabolize. The use of coconut oil during pregnancy or after birth can prevent and eliminate stretch marks.
10. Nursing Hair
Coconut oil can prevent the split ends of the hair and prevent the early development of gray hair and hairless. It also plays a role in preventing dandruff and protecting the scalp.
11. Preventing Vascular Disease
Coconut oil can lower the cholesterol ratio, help improve insulin sensitivity, make cells easy to react and less antagonize, thus helping to protect against high blood pressure, even lower blood pressure, reduce the risk of heart disease, and can prevent heart disease and other diseases.
Oil Press Technology from Fresh Coconut
Coconut meat contains up to 33% oil. For thousands of years, the traditional method of extracting oil is quite simple: crush the copra into chips and boiled in water, the oil will separate and float on the surface of the water, then pull out the oil. Nutrients of coconut oil processed by this method will be destroyed at high temperatures. Another method is to squeeze the coconut milk from the copra chips and then ferment it naturally for 24-36 hours, so that the oil is separated from the water, then the oil is removed and heated for a short time to remove the water. . This medium temperature heating method does not damage coconut oil, but the processing takes a long time.
There are also a variety of methods for extracting coconut oil. The coconut oil obtained by different methods differs in appearance, quality, taste and aroma. But in general, it can be divided into two major types of methods: one is hot press, firstly to make the coconut into the copra, and after crushing, the coconut oil is obtained by screw pressing. The screw press process generates heat due to friction during the pressing process, and some of the nutrients of the coconut oil is lost, which limits the use of subsequent refining.
The other method is cold press to make virgin & pure coconut oil without chemically treated at room temperature. The cold pressed coconut oil is mostly extracted from fresh coconut. The production process uses a hydraulic extraction method. Because the fatty acid is not destroyed during processing, the original nutrients are more completely preserved. The liquid of this oil is as clear as water and is white after curing. Because it has not been treated with high temperature and chemical substances, this oil retains the original ingredients and has the special smell and taste of coconut. It can be widely used in food processing, cosmetic and skin care processing, pharmaceutical processing and other industries.
Features of Hydraulic Coconut Oil Press
● Hydraulic oil press can press the coconut oil at room temperature. The nutrition of coconut oil would not be destroyed and original flavor could be preserved.
● Cold coconut oil press is composed of hydraulic cylinder, pressing barrel etc. Cold pressed coconut oil has high quality, good smell, and high yield rate.
● Press force of the hydraulic cold oil press could reach to 380 tons. Under that force, coconut oil will be pressed out while zero temperature rise on oil and oil cake.
● The oil press can operation automatically and manually. There are two barrels on this oil press. When one is under pressure automatically, the operator can fill the other barrel with oil material. That would promote the processing efficiency.
SIMEC has advanced coconut oil hydraulic cold pressing technology, can provide a variety of models to meet your different production needs. If you are interested in the hydraulic oil cold press, please contact email@example.com for a quotation.
