This organic virgin coconut oil is very heat stable so makes an excellent cooking and frying oil. It has a subtle coconut aroma and adds a very mild pleasant hint of coconut taste to the food.
This Sri Lankan organic coconut oil has about 55-57% Lauric Acid content. This is high compared to many other coconut oils which only have around 50%. Our coconut oil is made from the pure white coconut flesh which uses a cold press expeller process (low temperature extraction) to produce this fine oil. Many of the cheaper oils are produced from both the white flesh and the internal brown skin (testa), producing a higher yield and lower quality oil with that lower Lauric Acid content.
What is Single Origin Coconut Oil?
Single Origin Coconut Oil means unblended coconut oil originating from a particular region with its own unique flavour profile. Similar to wine, single origin coconut oil is shaped by tree variety, soil type and altitude. Coconut oils vary in taste from region to region. This is due to the "terroir" or soil composition, weather patterns, altitude and many subtle variables which influence the coconut it comes from.
This organic virgin coconut oil is a genuine single origin coconut oil, and the benefits show. Most other Virgin Coconut Oils (VCO) are blended with oils sourced from several different regions or even countries. This is mainly due to VCO suppliers sourcing the best possible price for bulk VCO - wherever that takes them. However this organic coconut oil is sourced solely from Sri Lanka.
