NUTIVA

Nutiva’s purpose is to produce the highest quality organic superfoods, providing superior nutritional value to our customers while supporting sustainable agricultural practices and a fair return to the farmers on whom we depend.  > See More Products From Nutiva 

How virgin coconut oil is processed is the key to optimizing its taste, texture, color, and aroma. Within two hours of Nutiva's coconuts being chopped, the virgin coconut oil is cold-pressed. Contrast this with 99 percent of the coconut oil used today in cooking and body care. First, the coconut is chopped and left to dry in the sun for days. Then the meat is scooped out and sent thousands of miles to giant oil mills where the oxidizing coco meat is refined, bleached, and/or deodorized. Ironically, this product is often labeled as "certified organic.”

There is no comparison between Nutiva's cold-pressed, Organic virgin coconut oil, with its light taste, pleasant aroma, and pure white color, and industrialized coconut oil, with its bland taste, faint aroma, and off-white color. Please note that any tiny brown specks found at the bottom of Nutiva's Coconut oil are from the coconut fiber and are indigenous to virgin coconut oil.

Coconut oil is about 50 percent lauric acid, a rare medium-chain fatty acid found in mother's milk that supports healthy metabolism and is now being studied for its anti-fungal, anti-viral, and anti-bacterial health-protecting properties. Overall, coconut oil contains 92% saturated fats, and only 1% Omega-6, the fat Americans get way too much of.

The Health Benefits of Virgin Coconut Oil

Since the 1960s, coconut oil has been unfairly labeled as "unhealthy." The media reported studies of how tropical coconut oils were laden with artery-clogging saturated fats. What was left out of these reports was the fact that the coconut oil used in the studies was not the virgin oil used for centuries but hydrogenated coconut oil. We have since learned it's the hydrogenation — artificially adding a hydrogen molecule to oils in order to make them shelf-stable — that's the problem, not the coconut oil itself. Hydrogenated soy, corn, and canola oils — loaded with dangerous trans-fats and processed with toxic hexane solvents — are routinely added to packaged foods. Hydrogenation fattened corporate profits and American waistlines, and is now linked with trans-fats and associated heart disease.

Baby formulas often include pure coconut oil as an ingredient because coconut is such a healthy super food. Virgin coconut oil is rich in the essential fatty acids, the "good fats" that doctors recommend and is cholesterol - and trans fat-free.

Health Properties of Lauric Acid

One of the “good fats” that makes up about 50% of coconut oil, is lauric acid. Lauric acid is a rare medium-chain fatty acid found in mother's milk. It is now being shown to have anti-fungal, anti-viral, and anti-bacterial health-protecting properties. Some researchers predict that lauric acid will one day become as well known in health circles as Omega-3 is today.

As studies reveal the downsides of consuming too many Omega-6 vegetable oils with their saturated fatty acids, coconut oil is making a comeback. We suggest consuming 3 tablespoons of virgin coconut oil a day.

Hydrogenated Trans Fat or Healing Coconut Oil?

The FDA started requiring the labeling of "trans fats" in 2006, and as a result the entire fat category is undergoing a review of its traditions and assumptions. Hemp and coconut oil products deliver the nourishing "good fats, which can play a vital role in our health. Millions of Americans are questioning the outmoded assumptions regarding “zero fat is good”, "tropical fats are bad," and "lots of vegetable oils are beneficial".

The traditional Pacific Islander diet included large quantities of coconut meat and oil, and those who still follow this diet have a low incidence of heart disease or weight issues. When a Western-style diet including vegetable oils replaces their traditional diet, all of the fat-related diseases common in the developed nations such as coronary heart disease begin to appear, their immune systems get weaker and serum cholesterol levels go up.

Besides its nutritional value, pure coconut oil also makes a luscious and soothing massage and body oil for dry and or damaged skin.

Coconut Oil and Diabetes

It may come as a surprise to many of today's dieters, but there is such a thing as "good fat," nutrition and medical experts say. "Good fats" also known as "essential fatty acids" (EFAs), are as important to human life and health as are vitamins and minerals.

Because the human body produces no EFAs, it is important that EFAs be consumed on a regular basis. More than 50 years of medical research has proven without a doubt that EFAs can influence the human body in a number of ways, including cardiovascular health, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis, brain function, infant development, immune function and cancer prevention.

It is estimated that more than 90 percent of Americans take in too little of one of the most important EFAs; omega-3; which is found in flax, walnuts, deep-water fish, and hempseeds. Hemp is also a good source of omega-6 and 9,plus the rare fatty acids GLA and SDA.

The quality of omega-3 is vital, and can be diminished by oxygen, heat, and light. Thus consume the freshest seeds and or oil possible and store them in a dark, cold environment such as a refrigerator. Nutiva obtains its seeds exclusively from Canada, and we date all our products.

Nutiva is one of my favourite brands, especially the coconut oil. It is always fresh and fragrant, and as a big cook and baker I enjoy using it in everything from sautéing to baking cakes, raw deserts and everything in between. I also use it to moisturize my body, hair, oral oil pulling, feed it to my dog... The list goes on! I cant live without this product!

5 out of 5 stars Cook, massage, arthritis X 2
by DADIG from Port Alberni, BC, Canada on 30/4/2014
Recommends it to Friends: Yes
Nutivas Organic Virgin Coconut Oil daily. We absolutely love it. Even after opening, the Coconut Oil doesnt need to be refrigerated. We use Nutivas Organic Virgin Coconut Oil primarily as a source of EFO as a supplement for arthritis. We use it on bread (toast) and likes that it goes on smoothly and adds a rich flavour to everything he eats. You can also cook with Coconut Oil, even rub it on dry skin. One bottle resides in the kitchen for measuring and a duplicate in the bedroom for body use. A great product with many uses.
