Coconut oil is so good for you…
I put about 2 T in my coffee or hot tea with some grass-fed butter and blend it. Sometimes I add some coconut milk creamer. It makes nice and frothy and gives me so much energy to start my day and when I need some energy in the afternoon, no caffeine needed! I’ve used coconut oil to replace most of my cooking oils except for extra-light olive oil and grass-fed butter for my cooking, frying and baking needs. I’ve made “Bug-off” bars and suntan lotion bars with coconut oil.
“Some other benefits are stress relief, cholesterol level maintenance, weight loss, boosted immune system, proper digestion and regulated metabolism. These benefits of oil can be attributed to the presence of lauric acid, capric acid and caprylic acid, and their respective properties, such as antimicrobial, antioxidant, anti-fungal, antibacterial and soothing qualities.” (from http://www.organicfacts.net/) .
What is Expeller-Pressed Coconut Oil?
Tropical Traditions Expeller-Pressed Coconut Oil is a high quality refined coconut oil. This oil is processed the “old” way by what is called “physical refining.” The modern way of processing coconut oil is by chemical extraction, using solvent extracts, which produces higher yields and is quicker and less expensive. Tropical Traditions Expeller-Pressed Coconut Oil DOES NOT use solvent extracts. It is made the “old” way by expeller-pressed mechanical extraction. This oil is also NOT hydrogenated, and contains NO trans fatty acids. It is a very good quality food-grade coconut oil.
Tropical Traditions Organic Expeller-Pressed Coconut Oil is made from certified organic coconuts that haveNOT been treated with chemicals or fertilizers. It is certified organic according to European and USDA standards. Our Organic Expeller-Pressed Coconut Oil is high in the medium chain fatty acids, such as Lauric acid. Organic Expeller-Pressed Coconut Oil is less expensive than Virgin Coconut Oil, and because it goes through a steam deodorizing process the taste is very bland, unlike Virgin Coconut Oil which retains the odor and taste of fresh coconuts. Some people prefer a bland, tasteless oil. This coconut oil is solid below 76 degrees F. and liquid above that.
Tropical Traditions Expeller-Pressed Coconut Oil, non-certified, is a 100% pure coconut oil made from high quality coconuts in the Philippines. This is the “common” type oil that millions of people in Asia consume on a daily basis. It is less expensive than our certified organic Expeller-Pressed Coconut Oil because it does not include the cost of organic certification. We get our Expeller-Pressed Coconut Oil, non-certified, from unpolluted areas of the Philippines where pesticides and fertilizers for coconut palms are virtually unknown. The coconuts typically come from very rural areas in the Philippines, far away from major urban centers. It is also deodorized and processed the “old” way with “physical refining” that DOES NOT use solvent extracts. This is the most economical high-quality pure coconut oil we sell.
