Virgin Coconut Oil & Coconut Cream

art of main content

CoconutVirgin 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 3½ tablespoons of coconut oil per day in their diet.

The author of The Coconut Oil Miracle, Bruce Fife, C.N., N.D. recommends an adult consume 2—4 tablespoons of conconut oil daily. He says it isn’t necessary to take it all at one time, but better to spread it out through the day. The dose can be achieved through cooking, taking it as a supplement (by the spoonful or mixed in liquid), or by applying it directly to the skin. Bruce Fife advocates we develop a coconut lifestyle plan to incorporate this wonderful whole food into our lives. See Bruce Fife’s article on coconut oil on our articles page.

Tropical Traditions Virgin Coconut Oil – $21.95

Virgin Coconut Oil

This Virgin Coconut Oil is a truly unrefined coconut oil. This coconut oil is made on Mt. Banahaw from organic coconuts. Coconuts are used fresh (within 24 hours of harvest) from small family farms on Mt. Banahaw and other rural places in Quezon Province, the coconut capital of the Philippines. The volcanic soil of Mt. Banahaw makes these organic coconuts some of the most nutritionally rich coconuts in the world! Testing done in independent laboratories reveals a 50% - 57% content of lauric acid, and higher levels of phenolic antioxidants than most other coconut oils. The fresh coconut meat is shredded (wet milled), and then cold-pressed to make coconut milk. The milk is then fermented for 24-36 hours, and the oil is then separated and filtered from the curds. No chemical or high-heat treatment is used, and this oil contains no trans fatty acids. We do NOT mass produce this oil. It is made by families who are coconut farmers using old-fashioned traditional methods that have been used here for hundreds of years. Our coconut trees and family producers are certified organic according to strict USDA standards. The families who produce the oil are also trained according to GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) standards and re-certified each year. This high-grade Virgin Coconut Oil has a long shelf life due to the high anti-oxidant properties.

 

Note: This virgin coconut oil can be used as a supplement, in food, as a cooking oil, and used to apply to the skin.

 

Tropical Traditions Coconut Cream – $11.00

Coconut Cream

Coconut Cream Concentrate is the whole coconut meat in concentrated form. It contains no additives (not even water). The dried coconut meat is ground into a very fine powder, giving it a creamy consistency due to its high fat content. You  can mix 1 or 2 teaspoons of Coconut Cream Concentrate with water or juice to make a creamy coconut milk drink. It is also an excellent ingredient for cooking and baking. It can also enhance soups, be blended with smoothies, or made into ice cream. Many people just eat it straight, or spread it on breads and crackers, because it is so delicious! 100% pure and natural, made from certified organic coconuts in the Philippines without the use of pesticides or fertilizers.  

 

Note: Coconut Cream concentrate is a food, it is not a cooking oil.

 

A Bit About Virgin Coconut Oil

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.
