Coconut Oil - 1 qt. Premium Unrefined Organic Virgin
SKU: FOOD PRODUCTS.:CocoOil/Btr - 32oz
Why You Need It
32 oz. in a glass bottle
Pure, raw unrefined & unheated, premium quality coconut oil. A true healing oil. Never heated in extraction or pouring, no chemical solvents. Made from fresh coconuts in Indonesia, and centrifuge-extracted.
Not all coconut oils are the same! Far from it. Most coconut oils available in stores are processed using heat and chemicals to extract the oil and pour it into bottles. So while it is okay for cooking, it doesn't have all the healing properties of unrefined coconut and doesn't taste like sweet fresh coconut.
Now many companies are copying the centrifuge extraction, but we have checked out the various sources and found despite whatever centrifuge it says is used, the product may actually be fractionated: the various components over-separated and the natural balance of the coconut oil lost. Claims that more of one fatty acid component than usual is not really a benefit by a sign of fractionation. And the so-called "virgin" oil is often heated to pour it into the bottles.
Our Coconut Oil is the best quality we could find anywhere, premium unrefined, so it would retain all the healing properties of the natural coconut that we consider important. We pack it in glass bottles, not plastic to prevent leaching of any chemical into the oil.
Coconut oil stored below 76 degrees becomes creamy smooth to a firm pure white solid - called coconut butter. When it is stored in above 76 degrees, it melts to a clear liquid. Stable in heat or cold. Shelf life is 5 years when stored in glass. 2 years if stored in (PET) plastic.
Can be used internally or externally.
Enhances health, assists weight loss. Supports thyroid activity. Less fattening than other oils, called the "low-fat fat" because it burns for energy so rapidly without special enzymes, so no stress to the liver, and it speeds up your metablism!
The coconut is rich in several immune-building fatty acids: lauric acid, capric acid, and caprylic acid . Lauric acid allows the body build immune defenses that combat bacteria, viruses, fungi (including yeast and candida), and protozoa. Regular use of coconut oil internally and externally can help get rid of various fungal infections.
Perfect for body care, skin, hair - absorbed by the body without leaving greasy feel. Work into hair and scalp and leave for several hours, or overnight under bandana. After you wash your hair, it will be left lusciously silky, shiny. Coconut oil can also be used topically to heal dry skin and chapped lips, soften rough skin like elbows and feet, smooth wrinkles, and it can help reduce scarring from injuries or stretch marks.
Use all over body - a great massage oil. Non-greasy, slippery-smooth, and non-staiinng to fabrics. Pefect for love-making too - good for vaginal dryness. Melts in hand with body heat.
Delicious oil for raw food preparation, or cooking. Coconut is the best of cooking oils because it can withstand high cooking temperatures and remain stable, no trans-fats.
Amazingly, coconut oil can also cleanse your colon by gently softening and loosening old impacted waste matter, and helps to remove it without difficulty.
The best all-round natural oil with many health benefits!
What Many People Don't Know Is ...
Coconut oil is made of a medium chain fatty acid (MCFA), not a long chain fatty acid (LCFA) like most other fats. MCFAs are digested differently than LCFAs; they're easily utilized and they absorb through the cell membranes without the special enzymes or "fat-packaging" by the liver, that LCFAs need, so they're used immediately as energy, not stored as fat.
Unlike LCFAs, MCFAs in coconut oil actually lower cholesterol levels and reduce the risk of heart disease. Also, MCFAs are protective of normal blood platelet condition and do not cause stickiness of the blood platelets, like most oils and fats -the LCFAs - do. So coconut oil does not encourage the formation of blood clots that may result in stroke, unlike other oils.
How to enjoy Coconut oil in your daily meals and snacks:
Add a tablespoon of coconut oil to your smoothies for a slightly sweet smoothness.
Pour a bit of coconut over your salad with vinegar, herbs and small pieces of fruit ,such as mango.
Use a spoonful of coconut oil instead of cream in your coffee.
Spoon some creamy coconut butter on whole grain toast or cereal and sprinkle cinnamon over it.
Mix with with carob and a bit of honey to make sweet dessert balls. Roll in sesame seeds for crunch, or coconut flakes if you wish. Can also be made with ground raw chocolate instead of carob, and add walnuts.
You can saute and even deep-fry all vegetables, fish, poultry, meats, eggs in coconut oil. Less fattening than other oils, called the "low-fat fat" because it burns for energy so rapidly without special enzymes, so no stress to the liver, and it speeds up your metablism!
Cooking in coconut oil makes good ethnic flavor for Thai food, but also does well with chili, scrambled eggs, fish, poultry, meats, etc. It absorbs the flavor of the spices and herbs you use.
"This is the best frying oil I have ever used. It is also an amazing moisturizer - no greasy, waxy, wet or oil feel, just instant softness. It is delicious!"
Hi, I am from the Philippines where coconut trees are abundant. There are many companies here making and selling Virgin Coconut Oil (VCO). I bought and tasted many of them but it leaves rancidity in my mouth. I even made VCO myself but I'm not satisfied. The order I made from you arrived and I tasted it. It's really different from the ones available here. When I tasted it, it was so smooth and there was no taste of rancidity. It leaves a mild coconut meat flavor in my mouth. How did you do it? D.R., Philippines
I love your coconut oil!.....I have been using it for approximately one year. (I did try a competitors oil but it was gritty and tasted like the brown covering on fresh coconut....) I do enjoy your oil and use it daily either in a protein shake, as the base for my stir fries; in my homemade biscuits and muffins, in pie crusts :) and of course by the spoon. I also apply it to my skin after I shower. It has done wonders both from the inside (taken internally) and the outside. My skin feels incredibly soft and has a healthy sheen.... Thank you for your commitment to an excellent product!! I hope you have plans in place to maintain your production forever. Sincerely, Dorinda B.

Quite a few months back, I ordered some of your coconut oil and found it to be the absolutely most wonderful tasting coconut oil! Then I read Sally Fallon's book and she recommended oil by another distributor, so I bought a 5 gallon pail! Ö So now I have 5 gallons of coconut oil that I cannot choke down! TO ANYONE CONSIDERING GETTING THEIR COCONUT OIL ANYWHERE ELSE - DON'T DO IT!!! You will be sorry! I think I'll try frying a turkey in the oil I have - I bet that would be edible. S.P.
Yummy, yummy, yummy! I think I could eat this by itself. Sooo good. Your Coconut Oil has a wondeful buttery, coconut flavor. The taste is smooth, the texture silky. It is melt in your mouth delcious with no harshness or aftertaste. Previously I was using a raw, cold-pressed coconut oil from Fiji. And, although the Fiji oil is just as gragrant and pristine as your Coconut oil, it ws not as smooth, buttery or delicioous... Also I amimpressed at your reasonable prices. Thank you for being a great source for the best oil on earth!
Your Coconut Oil was the first type of coconut oil ordered online. It is absolutely delicous - I love to take a tablespoon of it and let it melt in my mouth. I put some in soups as it really improves the flavor. I also use it for stir frying. i assumed all coconut oil would taste just as good so I ordered a quart bottle from another company. Their coconut oil had such a different taste from your Coconut Oil. If it had been the first that I had tasted, I nevere would have bought coconut oil again. M. H.
You guys have the most delicious tasting coconut oil I have ever tasted! I tried 5 different brands. You're the best! S.W.
