WHAT EXACTLY IS FRACTIONATED COCONUT OIL?
To explain it simply, Coconut oil is an edible oil extracted from the kernel of the coconut plant. This oil has been shown to have an extremely high concentration of an all natural, healthy, saturated fat. Depending on how the coconut oil is extracted, it will determine if it is edible (virgin oil) or inedible (refined). If you want to get technical, here is what is listed on Wikipedia; "Coconut oil, or copra oil, is an edible oil extracted from the kernel or meat of mature coconuts harvested from the coconut palm (Cocos nucifera). It has various applications. Because of its high saturated fat content, it is slow to oxidize and, thus, resistant to rancidification, lasting up to six months at 24 °C (75 °F) without spoiling."
