Okonatur Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, which is derived from the meat of matured coconuts, is a mild flavored and extremeley stable oil. Thanks to this stability, it is suitable for cooking and heats well to to high temperatures. Coconut oil is a saturated fat that is actually good for you because it consists largely of medium-chain triglycerides, which decreases the chances of cardiovascular disease. Most types of fat contain long-chain triglycerides, which are stored as fatty deposits. Medium-chain triglycerides, on the other hand, create energy. Coconut oil increases the body's resistance to infection and disease (anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-protozoic). Use coconut oil as a healthier way to fry foods. You can also use the coconut oil on your bread as a spread instead of butter or margarine. It has only 2% PFAs (polyunsaturated fatty acids) and 0% trans fats.

Virgin organic coconut oil is produced in a particularly gentle manner with no chemicals or solvents, to insure that all the natural properties are retained as in the original form of the freshly harvested coconut fruit. In this way the lauric acids and vitamin e are preserved. This coconut oil is pressed out of the fresh flesh of the coconut palm fruit (cocos nucifera). The fresh coconuts are shelled and pared and the white meat is ground and then quick dried. The dried meat is then processed through an expeller and press where the oil is separated from the meat. The oil is then filtered and packaged. Food Grade and non-hydrogenated.
