Coconut is one of the world’s most nourishing superfoods. Coconut Oil has a creamy taste of the tropics and is great for sautéing, baking, enhancing your favorite recipes, and body care.
Nutiva’s Organic Virgin Coconut Oil is a superfood that hails from Southeast Asia where fresh coconuts are cold-pressed right after harvesting. The fresh meat inside each nut yields a pure, smooth oil that is never deodorized, bleached, or refined. Coconut contains lauric acid, a medium-chain fatty acid also found in human breast milk. Lauric acid makes up about 50% of coconut oil.
Coconut Oil is naturally liquid at warmer temperatures and is semi-solid to solid at cooler temps.
Nutiva is one brand of coconut oil that’s earned high marks both for its nutritional properties and its provenance. Women’s Health rated it a high-quality, dietician-approved product, and The Good Trade praised it for being organic, fair trade, and non-GMO.
There is no difference between virgin and extra virgin coconut oil. Unlike olive oil which has multiple pressings, organic coconut oil has just one pressing. While some companies choose to market their coconut oil products as “extra virgin”, that designation is not allowed in certain countries, like Canada. Since 2013 Nutiva has marketed our Organic Virgin Coconut Oil with the same name in all countries where our product is available.
Both Nutiva’s Organic Virgin Coconut Oil and Organic Refined Coconut Oil have a shelf life of two years from the date the product was packed.
