What is Coconut Oil?
Coconut oil is a vegetable fat found in coconut pulp. The modern technique for extracting the oil involves drying the pulp, before cold pressing it to release the oil.
Taste & Texture
Our coconut oil comes from organic farming. It has a delicate tropical fragrance, and is a liquid above 23°C. At colder temperatures, it becomes solid, taking on a white colouring and a consistency similar to butter.
Coconut oil can be stored just like any other oil in a cool, dry place, away from direct light and heat. If you prefer to use your coconut oil in a solid form, even during the summer, you can store it in the fridge. Just make sure you take the desired amount of oil with a clean and dry spoon. To return coconut oil to a liquid form, simply hold it in your hands for a few seconds or heat the desired quantity in a glass bowl over a bain-marie.
