Centrifuged coconut oil is made by first pressing the fresh, white meat of the coconut to obtain a coconut cream. This cream is approximately 40% oil. The pressing should be done on a special machine where both the pressing plate and the sleeve are cooled by chilled water. Using a centrifuge, the cream is then concentrated to yield a higher and higher percentage of oil while the proteins and water-soluble substances are separated out. In the end, this coconut oil has a very light, coconut flavor and most people would consider it to be very mild and smooth. It is typically considered one of the highest quality coconut oils but is also one of the most expensive to produce. This oil should always be labeled as virgin coconut oil. All moisture, fiber, and proteins can be removed without the use of heat, allowing it to be considered raw.

Coconut oil is high in saturated fats, but it mainly consists of medium-chain fatty acids (MCFAs), particularly lauric acid. MCFAs are believed to have a neutral or positive effect on heart health by increasing HDL (good) cholesterol levels and converting LDL (bad) cholesterol into a less harmful form.
The MCFAs in coconut oil are easily digested and metabolized, providing a quick source of energy. Some research suggests that these fats may help boost metabolism and increase feelings of fullness, potentially aiding in weight management. However, it's important to note that coconut oil is calorie-dense, so moderation is key.
