    It looks like coconut oil can be home rendered in a very similar way as lard.

    Huh! That's cool, Grandma! I didn't know that! Unfortunately coconut products don't play nice with my digestion. :-(

    What an difficult way to get a cup of oil!


    Like olive oil, coconut oil is made commercially with expeller pressing. It's just like one of those sausage grinders grandma's used to have. A tightening screw increases pressure and the oil is squeezed out. No heat.

    life is hard dude. There is no magic way to separate the water and oil. You have two choices: dry the coconut before you press it or separate the water and oil after.


    There are 2 heat free ways. wet mill and centrifuge or wet mill and fermentation to let the oil separate on it's own. Dry milling requires heat to dry the coconut and produces heat in the pressing.


    All trivial arguments -- the point is that virgin coconut oil can be produced by primitive means. Unlike corn oil or even refined coconut oil (the flavorless hydrogenated stuff). Therefore enjoy at will.

    There are also small local ranchers who are feeding their beef on grass AND corn. Not all grain-fed meat is factory farmed. I do know that beef from cattle that are fed grass has a much better taste, it gives the beef a much more savory beefy flavor. But feeding cattle on low quality pasture grasses, grass that does not have enough sugar and calories to meet their nutritional needs, can give the beef an off flavor. So feeding beef cattle on pasture grass along with corn results in really good tasting beef that never has an off flavor. Plus adding corn to a grassfed diet means that you can harvest the beef at a younger age, tenderer beef.

    The marketing of grassfed beef has been at a very high level. Advocates of grassfed beef have used everything they can think of to try to turn people away from Big Beef, which I don't mind. But in doing so, they have vilified corn, which I don't like so much. Corn is an inexpensive source of nutrition and energy. Adding corn to a grass diet is the only way that I can produce superior tasting beef at a reasonable price.

    So overhyped? Maybe. But if you want the best tasting beef that you can get, buy your beef from a small local guy who is breeding cattle for superior carcass traits and feeding their beef in a grass pasture. And don't be worried if they are feeding corn to their beef cattle.

    It's not just about the fat content.

    Cows do not digest corn well. It causes inflammation of their gut and increases risk of infection. That's one of the big reasons factory farm cattle are pumped full of antibiotics and growth hormones. Cattle suffer the pro-inflammatory effects of a grain diet as much, possibly even more, than humans do. Plus, grain-fed cattle are more likely to spend their lives confined to a feedlot in overcrowded conditions, which also increases their risk of illness.

    I think the other thing to remember is if we are not intaking grains, why should we eat animals that do? As s-piper mentioned, since cows do not digest corn well and causes inflammation, you can probably assume the same would happen with our bodies.

    I've also noticed a different in taste and in the way my body digests the meat that's grass-fed compared to grain-fed and hormone injected.
