what's the difference between fractionated coconut oil and organic virgin non gmo coconut oil? I'd like to know before I complete my purchase.
Fractionated coconut oil, also called “liquid coconut oil,” is a form of coconut oil that has had the long-chain fatty acids removed via hydrolysis and steam distillation. Fractionated coconut oil is literally just a 'fraction' of the complete oil. The highly prized component of coconut oil, the lauric acid, has antimicrobial properties, and as such, is used as a natural preservative and removed from virgin oil. What is left behind is a liquid oil that will not turn solid, a 'fraction' of the original oil. It also has a lower burning point which means it's NOT suited to cooking with. Instead of discarding it, the natural cosmetic industry uses it. The fractionated oil can be really useful in the preparation of natural skin care and as a carrier oil for blending and diluting essential oils. When you pick up a moisturizer or a cleanser that has coconut oil in it, the chances are it's the REFINED fractionated oil. Cosmetically, it's more stable as it doesn't change from a liquid to a solid. This is why we DO NOT carry fractionated coconut oil we ONLY carry PURE organic, virgin, non-GMO coconut oil. We cook with it and I use it to coat baking pans when caking cakes and bread.
