Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil. A Deliciously Healthy Cooking Oil. Better than Butter. Rich in Lauric Acid. Unrefined & No Trans Fats. No Hexane. Nature’s Ideal All-Purpose Cooking Oil. Also, A Rejuvenating Soothing Body Oil. No trans or hydrogenated fat; no cholesterol or hexane. No refrigeration required; solid at room temperature and melts at 76 degrees. Not all saturated fat is bad! Coconut oil is cholesterol-free and contains medium-chain good fats with 50% -55% Lauric Acid–a healthy nutrient that supports the metabolism. The Coconut Oil Myth: Coconut oil was once mistakenly considered unhealthful. The fact is, this oil is cholesterol-free and rich in the medium-chain “good fats” doctors recommend. Why is it that baby formulas often include coconut oil? Because coconut is one of the world’s most nourishing super foods. Nutritionists suggest enjoying up to 3 tablespoons of extra-virgin coconut oil each day, so help yourself to this heavenly, creamy taste of the tropics.
Nutiva’s Coconut Oil is:
- Cold-Pressed and Pure White: Not refined, deodorized, or bleached! Savor its naturally rich aroma and enticing light taste. – Organic: So it’s free from pesticides, GMOs, and hexane. – Versatile: Ideal as a high-heat cooking oil (up to 350 degrees F.), as a nutritious substitute in baking, as a “better-than-butter” replacement on bread, vegetables, or popcorn, and as a luscious oil for skin care, hair care, and massage. America Needs an Oil Change: While doctors suggest we consume a 3:1 ratio of Omega-6 to Omega 3, the average American diet provides a ratio of 20:1 or more–contributing to heart disease, skin disorders, and arterial inflammation. So avoid out-of-balance soy, corn, and canola oils with their trans fats, oxidation, and GMOs. Cook with coconut oil (with only 1% Omega-6), and use olive oil (also low in Omega-6), and hemp oil (the perfect 3:1 Omega ratio) for unheated recipes.
