Crude Coconut Oil is produced by pressing the crude oil from the coconut's copra, which is the dried coconut meat. Typically, the pressing is accomplished through the use of an expeller press.
After the crude coconut oil has been expressed, it is then "refined" which eliminates contaminants or other impurities. Once further processed by refining, the product is called RBD (Refined) Coconut Oil. From RBD Coconut Oil, this can be further transformed to create Specialty Fats.
