Certified organic by Ecocert Canada and make of superior quality coconuts, naturallyorganic virgin coconut oil is the result of a unique extraction process. Used to separate the oil from the milky emulsion, this ultra-cold extraction method makes it possible to preserve the nutritional value of the food (such as its high antioxidant content) and its delicate tropical taste, in addition to making it the ideal ingredient for cooking. Virgin coconut oil can replace all vegetable oils or serve as a binding agent in raw food, pastries or Asian recipes.
