Frequently Asked Questions about
Bukó Coconut Oil
How is the coconut oil made
For generations in the Philippines they have been making virgin
coconut oil by hand, using a traditional Philippine method of
extraction. First the fresh coconuts are opened and the white meat
is grated into flakes. Then the flesh is pressed, yielding a fresh
coconut milk. This is all done at a very low temperature
(cold-pressed). Within about 12 hours the natural enzymes from the
coconut will break down this milk protein, releasing the oil. As the
oil floats, it is siphoned off and packaged for shipment. This oil
is never heated or altered.
What makes it virgin coconut oil?
Virgin coconut oil is oil extracted from fresh coconuts through
a natural process, without the use of chemicals, additives, or
preservatives. It is called "virgin" due to its pure, raw, pristine,
and unadulterated state.
How does virgin coconut oil differ from other coconut oils?
Other coconut cooking oils are derived from copra and undergo
chemical refining, bleaching, and deodorizing (RBD) processes prior
to being sold. It is clear, yellowish, tasteless, and has lost its
natural vitamin content. Virgin coconut oil is made from fresh
coconuts and does not undergo RBD processes. Thus, it remains pure
and clear, retains the aroma and taste of coconut and still contains
natural vitamin E.
How does virgin coconut oil differ from other oils?
Virgin coconut oil is saturated oil, made up mostly of medium chain
fatty acids. Other oils such as vegetable oils (corn oil, soybean
oil, safflower oil) contain mostly long chain fatty acids, which are
polyunsaturated. Olive oil and canola oil are classified as
monounsaturated. Medium chain fatty acids make virgin coconut oil
unique in terms of digestion and metabolism. Unlike other oils which
are digested using bile and pancreatic enzymes, virgin coconut oil
goes immediately to the liver and is converted to energy.
What is the best time to consume virgin coconut oil?
In general, you may consume it any time of the day or spread out
throughout the day.
My coconut oil is now liquid but when I bought it at the store it was solid. . Is it still okay to consume?
Yes, it's perfectly okay. Coconut oil melts at about 76°F. Below this temperature it is a solid; above, it is a liquid.

t is similar to the fats found in mother's breast milk that confers immunity to babies.
How do I cook with coconut oil?
Virgin coconut oil can be used in place of other cooking oils, including
butter and can also be added to your favorite fruit smoothie or shake. It can be
spread on toast or used as a cooking ingredient. It can be used for pretty much
everything that you would cook. See some of our example recipes.
Spicy Hot Coconut Sauce Directions:
Heat 3 tablespoons Coconut Oil in a pan,
add sea salt, pepper, curry and cayenne spices, then pour over steamed veggies,
salad, or grains.
Consider adding seeds or nuts to the spiced oil.
Blend well. If oil is liquid in summertime, place dish in freezer. Stir to blend up ingredients a few times as the oil hardens.
Use a hand (or stick style) immersion blender to make a tasty drink which serves to rinse down supplements and also to give you a good start on the day.
The proportions can be varied to suit your own taste and appetite. A large drink normally ends up being about 20 oz. Use any type of fruit or juice that you
like and add more or less juice depending on how thick you like the drink.
If I have any fresh fruit on hand (blueberries, peaches, etc.) add an amount equal to about half of the banana
2-3 tablespoons of coconut oil (at room temperature; it really doesn't matter if it is solid or liquid)
8-12 ounces of orange juice or any combination of juices that you like (popular blends are a combination of grape or pineapple and orange)

Coconut-Oil Pie Crust:
(This makes SUCH a nice flaky pastry!)
3/4 cup unbleached white flour
1/2 cup whole-wheat pastry flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
2 T maple sugar or cane sugar
1/4 tsp salt (I add just the tiniest pinch more, the recipe seems to need it)
1/4 cup coconut oil (measure it in solidified form, in a dry measure)
2 TB. Earth Balance or other vegan margarine (NOT "light" margarine) chilled or
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
3-5 TB ice water
Toss dry ingredients together in a medium bowl. Toss the solidified coconut oil
and margarine with the dry ingredients, coating the hardened pieces with flour,
which makes the pieces easier to break up and work in.
Work into the flour with your fingers or (preferably) a pastry blender. The
coconut oil and margarine should be distributed into different-size pebbles, all
of them small. Break up any large clumps or pebbles into smaller pebbles; no
pieces should be larger than a pea.
Add the vinegar to the ice water. Drizzle the water into the dough a spoonful at
a time, mixing in each as you go. You have enough water in the dough when the
dough holds together well when pinched. Do not add any more water than
Gather the dough into a ball and flatten it into a disk. Wrap disk in plastic;
The original recipe says to chill for an hour at this point. I have discovered
