Overview

What is Organic Virgin Coconut Oil?

Organic Virgin Coconut Oil is a top quality coconut oil made from 100% organic coconuts. Coconut oil is rich in medium chain triglycerides or MCTs, as well as lauric acid.It's free from cholesterol and trans fatty acids and is fantastic for cooking. Our Organic Virgin Coconut Oil provides 500ml (460g) per tub.

How should I use coconut oil?

Organic Virgin Coconut Oil is considered to be one of the healthiest dietary oils available. It is extremely heat stable meaning, unlike unsaturated fatty acids, such as vegetable or olive oil, it does not become damaged by heat. This makes it perfect for baking, frying, roasting or adding flavour to foods. Coconut Oil can also be used in smoothies and hot drinks as a high energy source of MCTs.

What are the benefits of Organic Virgin Coconut Oil?

Aside from probably being the best oil to cook with, Coconut oil has been linked to a number of health benefits when consumed regularly as part of a balanced diet. Organic Virgin Coconut Oil is also incredibly high in the MCT Lauric Acid, containing over 49g of this fatty acid per 100g. Lauric Acid is thought to potentially have antiviral and antifungal properties, research is ongoing with regards to this.

How is Organic Virgin Coconut Oil made?

The coconuts used in Organic Virgin Coconut Oil are 100% organic and have been harvested from organically grown palm trees in Sri Lanka. The coconuts are cold pressed to extract the oil ensuring no damage to the finished saturated oil, meaning it is free from trans-fatty acids and cholesterol. Organic Virgin Coconut Oil holds Soil Association and EU certification for its organic status. It is free from GMOs and has not been hydrogenated, bleached, refined or deodorised.

How might coconut oil benefit athletic performance?

Coconut oil is made up predominantly of MCTs. Rather than being broken down like other fats MCTs are absorbed intact and metabolised in the cells of the body. Studies have shown consuming readily metabolised fatty acids during exercise can help to promote fat oxidation and therefore help to preserve glycogen stores. As a result, many athletes have started to use MCTs as a high quality energy source. Coconut Oil is also great for bulking as is very high in energy and can be added to almost any smoothie, shake or recipe.

Q&A

Who should use Coconut Oil?

Coconut Oil is ideal for anyone looking to add high quality calories to their diet. It is commonly used by people who are bulking, and by endurance athletes as an energy source.

Can Coconut Oil be used for cooking?

Coconut Oil is a great choice for cooking as it is extremely heat stable and will not become damage by heat. When polyunsaturated oils such as olive oil or rapeseed oil are heated they can become oxidised and form trans-fatty acids which are bad for health and can lead to conditions such as vascular disease. As a fully saturated fat, coconut oil will not become damaged by heat making it a much healthier choice for high temperature cooking.

Can Coconut Oil help with fat loss?

Coconut oil contains high levels of medium chain triglyceride (MCT) fatty acids. Studies have shown that replacing some calories in your diet with MCTs (but not exceeding daily calories overall) can result in a significant increase in the rate of fat loss over time.

Suggested Use
Use as a heat stable oil for baking, frying, roasting or flavouring. Alternatively use in drinks and smoothies to increase fat and calorie intake.
