PURE VIRGIN COCONUT OIL
The Coconut Tree is an integral part of the Pacific identity. It is known as the Tree of Life, One of its greatest natural products is Virgin Coconut Oil.
Pure Virgin Coconut Oil is the most natural form of coconut oil. It is extracted from the coconut flesh with a minimal amount of processing which means that no heat or chemical compounds are used during the process.
The kernels are obtained from mature coconuts under hygienic conditions. Utilising the cold pressed method enables the coconut oil to retain almost all the important biologically-active components present naturally in the coconut kernel.
Our Virgin Coconut Oil is wholesome and healthy. The most delightful part is the lauric acid content. This amazing compound is rare in nature, except in mother’s milk. Virgin Coconut Oil also works to boost the immune system, aid in mineral absorption and has antimicrobial properties that help fight off bacteria and illness. Our virgin coconut oil is completely unrefined – therefore 100% pure this ensures that the oil retains all the natural goodness of the coconut in its natural form.
The presence of biologically active components in Our Virgin Coconut Oil is the main difference between traditional white coconut oil and other virgin coconut oil. The natural substances which are present in minute quantities provide health benefits, especially preventing or minimizing chronic diseases.
Our virgin coconut oil is made from the best coconuts. Our oil is 100% pure and is composed of more than 65% medium chain fatty acids (MCFA’s). MCFAs are smaller molecules, therefore, are easily digested and used by our body to produce energy similar to carbohydrates. However, are not circulated in the bloodstream like other fats. Hence, they do not become stored in fat cells or contribute to weight gain. On the other hand, all the Omega 6 Polyunsaturated Processed Oils we use for cooking are primarily composed for digestion. Their complex route involves LDL (low-density lipoprotein)Cholesterol to build up in our body. Unlike MCFAs (which is highly resistant to oxidation), LCFAs (Long Chain Fatty Acid) are rapidly altered by free radicals during manufacturing and cooking process (due to its sensitivity to heat) creating oxidized LDL cholesterol fats which is more toxic to our body than LDL cholesterol.
Our Virgin Coconut Oil is 100% pure and is naturally organic with no trans or hydrogenated fats and no cholesterol.
