I wrote to their customer service folks yesterday, and here's what they told me about the quality of the oil and how it's processed:

Thank you for contacting us. The coconuts come from the Philippines but the it is processed here in the U.S. The coconuts are dehusked, grated, and the fresh coconut meat is cold pressed and filtered with no chemicals or preservatives added. This process retains the enzymes, lauric acid and all the other nutrients.

Our Virgin Coconut Oil is extracted from certified organic fresh coconuts without using excessive heat or harsh conditions in processing. No chemical is added. No bleaching is done. The natural nutrients and characteristics including aroma of fresh coconuts are therefore preserved. The result is a crystal clear liquid at room temperature (26 deg C) but turns solid white at temperatures below 26 deg C. It is pure 100% oil and contains no trans-fatty acid or cholesterol.
