Virgin Coconut Oil (VCO) is the oil produced from fesh coconuts. Unlike the ordinary coconut oil, Virgin Coconut Oil (VCO) is produced not by the addition of chemicals or processes that use high heat. Virgin Coconut Oil (VCO) beneficial to health, this is because Virgin Coconut Oil (VCO) contains many medium chain fatty acids (Medium Chain Fatty Acid / MCFA). MCFA are most in the Virgin Coconut Oil (VCO) iaLauric Acid (Lauric Acid). Properties that is easily absorbed MCFA will increase metabolism. The addition of energy produced by the metabolism of this produces stimulating effects in the human body there by increasing the level of energy produced. Core processes in the manufacture of Virgin Coconut Oil (VCO) is located on the separation of oil from water and protein. Many obstacles must be faced for separating oil from water and proteins, such as in the fermentation processs, the separation process takes a long time to get the Virgin Coconut Oil (VCO). While the centrifugation, the separation is done by utilizing the weight of the lighter oil. Although I do not require centrifugation long time but the way it has in the purity of the product constraints. This research was conducted by using coconut milk is silenced for 3 hours. Then the cream is incorporated into the instrumen with speed centrifuges spin 1000 rpm, 1200rpm and 1400rpm with variation times very; 15 minutes, 20 minutes and 25 minutes after that coconut cream layer divided into 3 layers of oil that is, the middle layer of protein (blondo). The results of Virgin Coconut Oil (VCO) is obtained and then analyzed with the efficiency, density, freezing pointand theVCOlevels. Separation methodused is themethod ofcentrifugation, separatingfunnelandmeasuring cupobtainedthe bestseparationmethodis the method ofcentrifugationbecausethe surface tensionof oilandthe resultingbest.
