Our unprocessed coconut oil is a naturally saturated fat and contains no cholesterol or trans fats. Moreover, it is not hydrogenated. It mainly contains fatty acids of moderate length that can easily be converted into energy by the body, rather than stored as a fat. This Coconut oil is considered a superfood. It acts as a powerful antioxidant and stimulates the immune system. It contains around 50% lauric acid, which helps the immune system and improves metabolism. The lauric acid together with the capric acid and caprylic acid have antifungal, antimicrobial and antibacterial properties. In addition, it helps the absorption of nutrients such as minerals, amino acids and fat-soluble vitamins.
Our virgin coconut oil comes from The Philippines. On this tropical archipelago, the coconut palm tree thrives. This versatile crop provides nutritious flesh, refreshing coconut water, strong fibres and leaves for clothing and of course the creamy coconut oil for cooking, cosmetics and traditional medicines.
