100% Certified Organic, Unrefined, Raw, Virgin Coconut Oil
Coconut oil is one of the most nutritious plant-based anti-bacterial, anti-microbial saturated fats containing medium chain fatty acids (MCTs), which are easily digested by the body and provide a perfect slow burning fuel. Coconut oil is comprised of over 60% MCTs such as caprylic acid, capric acid and most notably lauric acid, which is a unique anti-microbial compound that is found in mothers breast milk.
It is one of the most stable oils for high-heat cooking (up to 175 degrees C). To ensure the highest quality Coconut Oil possible, every detail starting from coconut selection to every stage of the process is of the utmost importance. All coconuts are Certified Organic from Thailand and are selected fresh to ensure optimal quality. Our Organic coconut plantations are near the ocean. This mineral rich soil produces the most incredibly nutritious coconuts possible. When it comes to producing the highest quality coconut oil, timing is everything. If one stage of the process is even a fraction off the quality will be compromised. Organic Traditions® is fastidious about making sure that this is the freshest, most delicious coconut oil you have ever tried. A rapid harvest-to-oil timeline is critical for optimal results. We ensure that coconuts that are hand harvested in the morning are processed and bottled only a few hours later. This preserves the natural composition of the oil and guarantees the highest possible content of vitamins, minerals, medium-chain fatty acids and other beneficial compounds not to mention a delicious taste and flavor profile. Organic Traditions® Raw Coconut oil is not refined, bleached, deodorized, pasteurized or hydrogenated. There are absolutely no solvents or chemicals used in the process. Most so-called “cold-pressed” or “expeller-pressed” coconut oils generate significant amounts of heat thereby degrading the naturally occurring beneficial compounds that are found in the oil. Great care has been taken to produce Organic Traditions® Raw Coconut oil so as to retain the micro-nutrients, the short and medium chain fatty acids, as well as Vitamins A, C and E. Organic Traditions® Raw Coconut oil has a deliciously mild, natural coconut flavor that incorporates well with all recipes. There are no preservatives, chemicals, artificial flavors or colors added.
