Certified Organic Coconut Oil GOLDFair Trade Certified, Organic, Centrifuge Extracted
Coconut, also known as Cocos nucifera, is native to the Pacific Islands, although it is now grown in many tropical regions around the world. Coconut oil is considered a functional superfood that contains fiber and trace amounts of essential vitamins and minerals, including iron, magnesium, and zinc. These nutrients comprise the fundamental building blocks for optimal wellness.
Coconut oil can be either refined (bleached and deodorized) or unrefined, and methods of extracting the oil vary between cold, expeller, and centrifuged. While expeller-pressed oils are extracted from dried copra and can be heated to rather high temperatures (up to 200 degrees F) during the extraction process, cold-pressed centrifuged coconut oil is superior because it comes from fresh coconuts and is exposed to much less heat - the result is a fresher, milder aroma and taste compared to expeller-pressed oils.
