    Cold Pressed Coconut Oil

    Coconut Oil is known for its healthy saturated fats, which are even better for you in its raw form. Our Sri Lankan oil has a rich tropical flavour with a sweet coconutty aroma. We also source our coconut oil from Thailand, which is the best quality oil we've ever found with a particularly smooth and delicate flavour and aroma - truly unique!

    What is it?

    We tend to refer to our Coconut Oil as "coconut butter" because its texture is creamier and more buttery than other coconut oils. Why? Because we use wet method centrifuge extraction, cold-pressing the oil from fresh coconuts within one hour of breaking the seal on the coconut shell. It is raw, light tasting and smooth - unlike any coconut oil you've ever experienced. Our current batch of Coconut Oil is sourced from Thailand and is processed in exactly the same way as shown in the photos on our gallery of the Mexican operation.

    **No additives or chemicals such as Hexane have been used to extract our Coconut Oil.

    How to use

    Coconut Oil can be used in a variety of ways. The most beneficial way for us to consume Coconut Oil is as a replacement to processed oils and fats. 

    Use Coconut Oil as a replacement to margarine and butter on sandwiches, add it to smoothies for a dose of healthy fats, or spread it on crackers and eat as is.

    Coconut Oil is considered to be a stable oil. With a smoking temperature of 177 degrees Celsius, Coconut Oil can also be used for medium heat frying and baking. Our Coconut Oil has a light and refreshing taste that will not over power your dishes, making it suitable for a wide variety of applications. Try it on homemade popcorn!

    We found that our oil from Thailand is great for raw desserts and sweet treats which require more delicate flavours, whereas our Sri Lankan oil is perfect for curries and coconutty dishes and desserts.  

    Coconut Oil can be used to moisturise the skin – simply apply some to your body after a shower for a soft creamy feeling. It is also used as a natural make-up remover.

    Coconut Oil is a great hair conditioner – apply generously before going to bed and wash it off in the morning for healthy and luxurious tresses.

    Health Benefits

    Coconut Oil is known for its Lauric acid content, and for its quality, healthy saturated fats. Cholesterol does not naturally occur in the plant kingdom. Unlike saturated animal fats, Coconut Oil is cholesterol free, making it safe for people with cholesterol challenges. Lauric acid promotes immune function through its transformation into monolaurin once ingested.

    Cellular Health

    Our body's cells are comprised primarily of saturated fats. Regular consumption of Coconut Oil is said to promote cellular health reducing oxidative damage from free radical exposure. Internal cellular protection translates externally to more hydrated, healthier looking skin.

    Weight Loss

    Medium Chain triglycerides (MCT's) are abundantly found in Coconut Oil. Unlike other forms of fat, the liver is able to metabolise MCT's similarly to how it utilises carbohydrates as a fuel source. Coconut Oil's digestibility means that it is quickly absorbed by our bodies, and not left to circulate the blood stream like other fats. The MCT's in coconut oil have also been shown to have thyroid supporting mechanisms. Studies that were conducted on the basal (resting) metabolic rate of people who ate MCT's comparative to those participants who consumed more LCT's (long chain triglycerides i.e. vegetable oils) were found on average to have a 12% increase in their basal metabolic rates.

    Growing & Processing

    Our current batch of Coconut Oil is sourced from Thailand. The coconut is husked, de-shelled, and washed by hand. The time between breaking the seal on the shell and the oil extraction is no more than three hours. Unlike many other coconut oils, the flesh of the coconut is pressed wet rather than dried, which is why our oil has such fresh and creamy qualities.

    The process for extracting the oil is called wet milling extraction, which involves expeller pressing the flesh of fresh coconuts into a pulp, forming a coconut milk emulsion. The processing temperature is kept below 25 degrees to maintain the nutritive quality of the butter. The coconut milk emulsion is then chilled to approximately 15 degrees. Cooling the emulsion weakens the protein bonds assisting the oil and water to separate during centrifugation (spinning). This process allows for greater oil quality and yield - and creates the incredibly creamy texture that makes our Coconut Oil so luscious.
