Sun.Star Davao - Health benefits of coconut [cached]

Generally, coconut oil is considered virgin when it is not heated, and when no additives or chemicals are used, according to Dr. Teresita M. Espino, director of the Laguna-based Biotech Institute.Once it has been heated or "cooked" and other materials are added to the mixture, the natural qualities are compromised and the oil may no longer be considered virgin.

The production of virgin coco oil, says Dr. Espino, starts from the grating process, followed by the extraction of the coconut milk.

Dr. Teresita M. Espino Director, BIOTECH University of the Philippines Los Banos - The Filipino Global Community [cached]

The research team was led by Director Teresita Espino of the UP Los Baños National Institute of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology (UPLB-BIOTECH).

It was undertaken through the Philippine Council for Advanced Science and Technology Research and Development (PCASTRD), an agency of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST), which provided funding.
The researchers changed the chemical properties of the oil through catalysis using lipase, an enzyme that aids in the breakdown of fats and oils.
Lipase used is actually the output of the team's earlier research on developing the technology for large-scale low-cost lipase production.
"The production of high-value products from coconut is one way where we could help improve the competitiveness of the coconut industry," Dr. Espino said.
Adoption of this technology would help raise the income of coconut farmers, village level entrepreneurs, and commercial coconut oil-based industries.It also offers an alternative application for the utilization of coconut oil, she added.–Rudy Fernandez
