Tropical Traditions Virgin Coconut Oil Review and Giveaway Ends October 9th @ 12:01 am EST

What is virgin coconut oil?

Well simply it's unrefined coconut oil from organic coconuts harvested from small towns in the Philippines.  Only the best coconuts are hand picked.  Thanks to the volcanic soil of Mt. Banahaw, these coconuts are come of the most nutritionally rich coconuts in the world!  They did tests in labs to prove it.  Virgin Coconut oil is rich in lauric acid, a nutrient that supports the body’s immune system. Lauric acid is also found in human mother’s milk.  Dr. Mary Enig suggests the average adult include about 3.5 tablespoons of coconut oil per day in their diet to take in an equivalent amount of lauric acid that a nursing infant would receive from breast milk.

How do they make coconut oil?

Well, I was wondering this too so I read up!  First they shred the coconut meat and then they cold press it using the water from the actual coconut insides to make coconut milk.  The "milk" sits for about a day so that the oil can just naturally separate since it is heavier than water.  The oil is then filtered from the coconut solids.   No chemicals or high heat is used and this oil contains no trans fatty acids.  The oil is not mass produced, it literally comes from small families and farmers who have been handing down the traditions of coconut farming for hundreds of years.  Tropical Traditions coconut farms are certified organic according to strict USDA standards.

How is this oil Used?

Virgin coconut oil is a food, and is one of the best cooking oils you can use. It has been a staple cooking oil for thousands of years in tropical climates. As a cooking oil, its chemical structure is kept in tact and therefore is resistant to mutations of fatty acid chains even when used in higher cooking temperatures, unlike most vegetable oils. Research shows that the medium chain fatty acids found in coconut oil boosts the body’s metabolism, raises body temperatures, and helps provide greater energy which can lead to weight loss.
