Project Description

Certified Organic Coconut Oil

Discription

Our Certified Organic Virgin Coconut Oil is pressed out of the meat of the coconut, that grows on the coconut tree (Cocos Nucifera).  The coconuts are sourced from small scale farmer initiatives in Asia and all are certified organic.

Locally, the oil is pressed out of the meat via cold pressing without the use of heat. This results in a white colored solid oil (at room temperature) with a slight sent of coconut.

We visit the farmers and facilities several times a year and have all compliance inspected and audited by an independent third party.

Applications

  • Virgin Coconut Oil has a very diverse use in food, supplement and cosmetic applications. Used for baking, broiling and stir frying it has great heat tolerance and gives the foods a little exotic kick
  • VCO is more and more used as a healthy ingredient in smoothies, shakes, coffees and juices. It is easy digestible and therefore used as an alternative for olive oil for cooking purposes and as a margarine alternative on sandwiches
  • It finds it ways in healthy life styles such as Vegan, Keto and Paleo ways of life. Pure and as a food ingredient in the Food Industry

Health Benefits

  • Coconut oil is high in fats called medium chain triglycerides, which are metabolized differently than most other fats. These special fats can be responsible for a lot of the health benefits of coconut oil
  • The medium chain triglycerides in coconut oil have been shown to increase calories burned over 24 hours. The fatty acids in coconut oil can significantly reduce appetite, which may lead to reduced body weight over the long term
  • VCO contains high levels of Lauric acid, which supports the “good kind” of cholesterol (HDL) in the body
