| Our white kernel and whole kernel VCO is cold-pressed from fresh carefully dried coconuts, giving it a delicious aroma. Versatile and healthy, VCO can be used for stir-frying, sauces, baking and body care. Extensive field research in the tropics shows that people who follow a traditional diet high in coconut oil enjoy excellent cardiovascular health. Clinical research confirms that VCO improves blood cholesterol by increasing the ratio of HDL to LDL cholesterol, due in part to saturated medium chain fatty acids (MCT's) such as lauric.
Whole kernel oil, which is made from the kernel with its "parings" is more nutritious and has a slightly nuttier flavor whereas white kernel oil offers a choice to consumers who are familiar with this grade. Both grades are versatile and healthy along with being organic and fair trade.
