An unprocessed culinary oil with natural coconut flavor and aroma Coconut oil is a stable, healthy saturated fat that is naturally free from trans-fatty acids Contains lauric acid — the kind found in mother’s milk — along with other medium-chain fatty acids like myristic acid. Lauric and myristic acids are saturated fatty acids that have shorter chain lengths than most animal derived long-chain saturated fatty acids Extra Virgin Coconut Oil is a healthy, vegetarian source of medium-chain triglycerides (MCT) which the body readily absorbs, metabolizes and converts to energy* Consumption of coconut oil at recommended levels, along with a healthy diet and lifestyle, helps maintain already healthy levels of cholesterol.* Additionally, the fatty acids found in coconut oil support healthy thermogenesis levels* Great for those on low carbohydrate diets Extra Virgin Coconut Oil® is one of the healthiest and most versatile unprocessed dietary oils in the world. Once thought to be a “bad” fat, coconut oil has been proven to be a stable, healthy saturated fat that can provide many benefits when used as part of a healthy diet. I thought tropical oils were unhealthy. What makes Extra Virgin Coconut Oil® different? Early researchers failed to distinguish the hazards and benefits between different saturated fats. They assumed all saturated fats (including coconut oil) were unhealthy because they raised serum cholesterol levels. But in revisiting those studies, researchers discovered that all saturated fats are not created equal. Newer research supports the fact that saturated fats rich in the medium-chain fatty acids like those found in Extra Virgin Coconut Oil are beneficial. Coconut and coconut oil are staple foods of many traditional native diets (i.e. Pacific Islanders, Sri Lankans, Malaysians), sometimes contributing to as much as 60% of their energy source. Epidemiological studies show that consumption of these high levels of coconut oil did not compromise the cardiovascular health in these population groups. I thought tropical oils were unhealthy.

Does Extra Virgin Coconut Oil contain cholesterol or trans-fatty acids? Cholesterol is only found in animal fats, therefore coconut oil is cholesterol free. Extra Virgin Coconut Oil is also naturally free from trans-fatty acids and more resistant to oxidation than other dietary oils--which makes it suitable for cooking and stir-frying. What makes Extra Virgin Coconut Oil® better than other coconut oils? Because Extra Virgin Coconut Oil® is traditionally prepared and minimally processed, it retains all of its medium-chain fatty acids and other beneficial compounds. How does Extra Virgin Coconut Oil support healthy thermogenesis levels? Thermogenesis is described as the generation of heat by physiological processes. When consumed at recommended levels, medium-chain fatty acids such as those found in coconut oil are rapidly metabolized and converted into energy rather than being stored in the tissues (when compared with longer chain animal derived fatty acids), thus supporting a healthy level of thermogenesis.* The rapid metabolism of medium-chain fatty acids may benefit those engaged in exercise activity by supporting energy levels.
