WHAT IS ORGANIC VIRGIN COCONUT OIL?
Organic Virgin Coconut Oil is another addition to our growing Active Foods™ range and is exclusive to BULK POWDERS™. Quite simply, it is the highest quality Organic Virgin Coconut Oil available – anywhere!
Nutritionally speaking, Organic Virgin Coconut Oil impresses in many regards. It is cholesterol-free and contains zero trans-fatty acids, yet it is packed with medium chain triglycerides (MCTs), particularly lauric acid. Organic Virgin Coconut Oil actually contains more lauric acid than any other food source – in fact, Lauric acid comprises in excess of 50% of the fat content within Organic Virgin Coconut Oil
Made from the flesh of the coconut, BULK POWDERS™ Organic Virgin Coconut Oil makes an ideal replacement for other oils and oil based products such as vegetable oil, olive oil and butter/margarine. Simply use it as you would these other products and benefit from its fantastic nutritional profile and great taste.

Unlike regular ‘coconut oil’, BULK POWDERS™ Organic Virgin Coconut Oil is extracted directly from the flesh of the coconut. The extraction process does not use high heats and nor are any chemicals used in the process. The cold pressed production method used to produce our Organic Virgin Coconut Oil results in an ultra-pure product with a fantastic nutritional profile and delicious taste. Coconut oil that has not been produced via this method cannot be called ‘virgin’.
BULK POWDERS™ Organic Virgin Coconut Oil has not been bleached, deodorised, refined or hydrogenated and nor does it contain any GMO ingredients.
Another common use for BULK POWDERS™ Organic Virgin Coconut Oil is as a moisturiser, as it is extremely nourishing and exfoliating and helps to protect the skin from free radicals.

Organic Virgin Coconut Oil is derived from coconuts. As the coconut is only distantly related to the tree nut, an allergic reaction is unlikely but please check with your allergist or a certified health practitioner prior to consumption.
Organic Virgin Coconut Oil is extremely versatile but is primarily used for cooking, frying and baking; often in place of olive oil, sunflower oil, butter or margarine.
The best way to get the greatest nutritional benefit from BULK POWDERS™ Organic Virgin Coconut Oil is to use it in place of all other oils. This includes vegetable oil, olive oil, butter, margarine or any other type of oil. Even if frying, Organic Virgin Coconut Oil is the best choice. Olive oil for example, although fantastic as a salad dressing, should not be used for frying or anything involving heat at all, because the heat causes oxidative damage. Organic Virgin Coconut Oil on the other hand is stable enough to resist this oxidative damage and retain its nutritional goodness.
Aside from using it directly in cooking processes, many people use BULK POWDERS™ Organic Virgin Coconut Oil as an addition to drinks such as green tea or even protein shakes to boost nutritional content. Why not try a spoonful in your favourite Protein Whey Protein™ for a nutritional boost, as well as a pleasant coconut taste. Or in our Complete Protein Porridge™ for an added MCT boost.
Store in a cool dry place, away from direct sunlight and strong odours. Once opened please ensure that the lid is securely replaced.
Note: During warmer months, Organic Virgin Coconut Oil has a tendency to change consistency. This is easily reversed by storing in the refrigerator, until the consistency returns to normal.
