Enjoy this healthy fat with the creamy taste of the tropics. Why is it that baby formulas often include coconut oil as an ingredient? Because coconut is one of the most healthy super foods in the world. Ideal as a high-heat cooking oil, a healthy substitute for shortening in baking, and a "better-than-butter" replacement on bread and veggies.
Not all saturated fat is bad! Coconut oil is cholesterol- and trans fat-free and rich in medium-chain "good fats" that doctors recommend. We suggest three tablespoons of extra-virgin coconut oil a day. To learn more about coconut oil myths, nutrition, and more, visit coconut info.
How virgin coconut oil is processed is the key to optimizing its taste, texture, color, and aroma. Within two hours of Nutiva's coconuts being chopped, the virgin coconut oil is cold-pressed. Contrast this with 99 percent of the coconut oil used today in cooking and body care. First, the coconut is chopped and left to dry in the sun for days. Then the meat is scooped out and sent thousands of miles to giant oil mills where the oxidizing coco meat is refined, bleached, and/or deodorized. Ironically, this product is often labeled as "certified organic.”
There is no comparison between Nutiva's cold-pressed, Organic extra-virgin coconut oil, with its light taste, pleasant aroma, and pure white color, and industrialized coconut oil, with its bland taste, faint aroma, and off-white color. Please note that any tiny brown specks found at the bottom of Nutiva's Coconut oil are from the coconut fiber and are indigenous to extra-virgin coconut oil.
Besides its nutritional value, pure coconut oil also makes a luscious and soothing massage and body oil for dry and or damaged skin.
