Tropical Traditions Coconut Oil Review & Giveaway Ends 7/1/11 at 7:00 PM EST

Recently I received a box from Tropical Traditions.  It contained a Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil Certified Organic 1 Quart (32 FL. oz.) glass jar.


Characteristics of Our Gold LabelTM Virgin Coconut Oil

This Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil is a truly unrefined coconut oil. This coconut oil is made on Mt. Banahaw and surrounding areas from organic coconuts. Coconuts are used fresh (within 24-48 hours of harvest) from small family farms on Mt. Banahaw and other rural places in Quezon Province, the coconut capital of the Philippines. Only the highest quality coconuts are hand-picked from each harvest. The volcanic soil of Mt. Banahaw makes these organic coconuts some of the most nutritionally rich coconuts in the world! Testing done in independent laboratories reveals higher levels of phenolic antioxidants than other coconut oils. The fresh coconut meat is shredded (wet milled), and then cold-pressed using the water from inside the coconuts to make coconut milk. The milk is then allowed to sit for about half a day, while the oil naturally separates from the heavier water. The oil is then filtered from the curds (coconut solids). No chemical or high-heat treatment is used, and this oil contains no trans fatty acids. We do NOT mass produce this oil. It is made by families who are coconut farmers using old-fashioned traditional methods that have been used in the Philippines for hundreds of years. Our coconut trees and family producers are certified organic according to strict USDA standards. The families who produce the oil are also trained according to GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) standards and re-certified each year. This high-grade Virgin Coconut Oil has a long shelf life due to the high antioxidant properties. The Gold Label Standard is our highest standard for Virgin Coconut Oil. Read more.

I used the Virgin Coconut Oil to make a chicken stir fry.  This Virgin Coconut Oil is amazing.  It smells great.  I love how it heats up and cooks.  I  really never even knew about coconut oil before.  I will use this from now on, it is much more stable than other vegetable oils.  I am very impressed with the quality of customer service that I received from Tropical Traditions.  They have sponsored a giveaway for the same quart of virgin coconut oil that I received.

If you can't wait to try it out, you can buy it here:
