What Is the Difference Between “Virgin” and “Extra Virgin” Coconut Oil?
There is no difference between “virgin” and “extra virgin” coconut oil. Unlike olive oil which has multiple pressings, organic coconut oil has just one pressing. Some countries, like Canada, do not allow the use of the term “extra virgin” to describe coconut oil, only olive oil. While some companies choose to market their product as “extra virgin” in territories where that is allowed, Nutiva has chosen to use the name Nutiva Organic Virgin Coconut Oil consistently in all territories where out product is sold.
