If my coconut oil says raw, extra-virgin cold pressed, is it safe to assume that it's unrefined?

The coconut oil I bought says organic raw cold pressed extra virgin , but it doesn't list unrefined.

Why wouldn't it? Surely they would put it if it was? Does all the other stuff mean its safe to assume that's unrefined?

It has a strong coconut smell, it actually smells delicious.

Thanks

What do you want to mean by refined? It was refined to some degree, as you don't just see coconut oil out in the wild. It was pressed, it was filtered. Was it extracted? I don't know. Was it treated with charcoal? I don't know.

i think its safe to say its unrefined. The fact that it says "raw extra virgin and cold pressed" implys just that. The refining process extracts with heat, and sometimes even takes away the scent and flavour away too.

Eat in good health. You have perfectly described unrefined coconut oil: "organic raw cold pressed extra virgin".
