What kinds of Coconut Oil do You Want to Produce?

The world's coconut  oil production has been over 3.2 million tons. The Philippines is the world's largest supplier of coconut oil, followed by Indonesia, Malaysia, and Papua New Guinea. There are two common types of coconut oils:

  • Refined Coconut Oil (RBD) - Made from Copra - Dry Processing: Extracted(expelled) from dried coconut meat - copra. Before oil pressing, the coconuts are cracked open and then dried in the sun or in a drying machine. The copra is then sent to coconut expeller machine to get crude oil. The curde oil will then go through oil refining process (refining、bleaching、deodorizing) to get final refined coconut / copra oil.
  • Virgin Coconut Oil (VCO) - Made from Fresh Coconut Meat - Wet Processing: It is extracted from fresh coconut meat. No high temperature, no hemical solvents, maintain the natural flavor and avoid nutrient loss. The finished virgin coconut oil retains a light coconut aroma. So it is also known as cold pressed coconut oil.

Coconut Oil Production Process (Copra)

coconut oil processing process

Complete process of making coconut oil:
crushing section, steaming / cooking section, oil pressing section, dugumming section, deacidifying section, decolorizing section, deodorizing section.

Coconut is a kind of tropical woody oil plant, belong to palmae. Most coconut oil on the market is processed from dried coconut pulp (copra) by screw oil pressing process. Coconut cake meal after oil extraction can be used as animal feed.

Content (%) Fresh Coconut Meat Dried Coconut Meat (copra)
Oil Content 30%~40% 60%~70%
Water Content 50% 4%~7%

PS: After drying, the water content is reduced to 4%~7% and the oil content is increased to 60%~70%.

Complete coconut oil processing line mainly includes 3 steps: pretreatment, oil extraction and refining.

  • Pretreatment: Dired Coconut (the moisture content should be controled 7%-10%) → Cleaning → Crushing
  • Oil Extraction Section:  Pre-Pressing → Second Pressing → Crude Oil
  • Refining Section: Crude Coconut Oil → Filtration → Phosphoric Acid Degumming → Deacidification → Decolorization → Deodorization → Refined Oil (Related Project: 20ton/day Coconut Oil Refinery in Philippines)

Market Profile of Coconut Oil Processing Business

coconut oil or copra
Coconut Oil Production by Country

For most tropical countries, coconut oil does not just provide food and other products but is a major source of export income. Some of the leading coconut oil producers in the world include the Phillippines, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Thailand, and Malaysia (not in any order). For these countries, coconut oil was, and still a major source of their export income. The Philippines, which is a major producer employs close to 20 million people in the coconut sector.

Competitive Edge of Coconut Oil

For thousands of years, coconut oil has been consumed in most parts of the world. It has been used for different purposes. The use of this oil might depend on whether it is for personal use, industrial use or for food purposes. Studies have also shown that those who consume coconut oil are always in good health as a result of the myriad of health benefits that it offers. Though you might go by those saying that coconut oil is about 90 percent saturated fat, do remember, however, that not all saturated fats are created equal.

refined coconut oil
Refined Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is an oil that is extracted from the meat or kernel of mature coconuts from the coconut palm which is botanically referred to as "Cocos Nucifera”. The extraction is done with the help of a coconut oil press machine, this oil can last up to six months as a result of its saturated content which makes it resistant to rancidification, and slow to oxidize.

Lauric acid is the saturated fat that is found in coconut oil. This acid is known to have more neutral and beneficial effects on the health of the heart than other long-chain saturated fats that can be found in dairy products or in meats. This goes to prove the fact that countries like Sri Lanka that rely mostly on coconut oil have low rates of heart diseases compared to people in other countries that do not eat coconut oil.

Deep Processing of Coconut Oil

Coconut Oil Type Rating Scale 1 to 10
Hydrogenated Coconut Oil 0 Avoid
Liquid Coconut Oil 1 Missing Lauric Acid
Refined Solvent Extract Coconut Oil 4 Chemical Residue Possible
Refined Physical Coconut Oil 6 Good
Fresh Pressed Virgin Coconut Oil 8 Very Good
Wet-mill no-heat Virgin Coconut Oil 9 Excellent
Wet-mill Fermen-tation, heated Virgin Coconut Oil 10 the Best

Below are some main coconut oil types in the world market:

  • Hydrogenated coconut oil. This refined coconut oil can further be processed into hydrogenated oil in order toincrease its melting point.
  • Fractionated coconut oil. The hydrogenated oil can further be turned into fractionated oil. This is done toensure the separation of the different fatty acids for specific purposes.

    According to 4 million coconut to calcultae,
    The copra to make oil: 4000000*0.18kg=  720000kg=720 tons.
    The day capacity: 720/25 days=28.8 tons.
    Pls confirm?
    So the capacity of the project is: 30 tons.
    Also the process technology: Because the coconut is high oil content oilseed. So normally we advise the customer takes double oil press technology.
    First, we press the coconut, second we press the cake to get more oil.

    While as for the VCO, the process method is as follows
    Cleaning->Grinding->Pressing(Juice pressing)-> separation-> Drying-> polish filtering

    Pls kindly advise how much dry copra and dessicated coconut do you want to process per day separately
    So we could suggest and quote for you accordingly soon
