Coconut Oil


Cracked, opened and dried.

Coconut oil is obtained from the fruit flesh of the coconut fruit. The coconut palm can be found in the costal regions in Asia and Pacific Islands. The main cultivation areas are the Philippines and Indonesia. After the harvest the coconuts are cracked open and dried.

The dried fruit flesh, the copra, forms the starting material for the white-yellowish coconut oil. This is highly saturated and therefore solid at room temperature. That is why it is also called coconut fat.
