NutriGold Coconut Oil

One of my favorite products that I use daily is coconut oil. I recently tried a jar of  Nutrigold's Coconut oil.

Here are the highlights of the oil right from their site

  • Certified organic, extra virgin, cold-pressed source of coconut oil
  • Naturally rich in Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCTs)
  • Rich in naturally-occurring lauric acid and Vitamin E
  • Fewer calories than conventional cooking oils
  • Rich flavor and aroma - ideal for cooking and baking
  • Naturally free of cholesterol, gluten, trans-Fat, and hydrogenated fats
  • Suitable for Vegans / Vegetarians
  • Naturally free of solvents, pesticides, and preservatives
  • Verified free of allergens by an independent, third-party lab
  • Verified free of GMOs by Non-GMO Project™ Product Verification Program
  • 2 lbs in each container / Approximately 65 servings per container
  • Product of Philippines / Packaged to stringent cGMP standards
  • Coconut Oil GOLD™ Key Health Benefits: Supports digestion, healthy weight, energy, and healthy hair and skin*
Now I use this in alot of my essential oil recipes. You can use this for cooking instead of any other oils you use to fry or saute with. I have made a recipe for use in my hair as well. This coconut oil is not overpowering and I really like it. It is all natural and I feel safe using it and using it on my children as well. 

Native to the Pacific Islands, coconut, also known as Cocos nucifera, is now grown in many tropical regions around the world. Our Coconut Oil is made from freshly harvested coconuts to preserve natural levels of lauric acid and Vitamin E. The dried flesh of the coconut is processed through a cold process expeller press to extract the oil. The extraction process does not involve the use of sulfites or any other processing aids, so you can be assured that you are getting a coconut oil that is pure, wholesome, and nutritious.
Coconut oil may contain small amounts of B Vitamins and larger amounts of minerals such as phosphorus, iron, magnesium, and zinc. The lauric acid in coconut oil helps support immune health and, unlike hydrogenated coconut oil, the saturated fat in organic coconut oil does not raise cholesterol levels.
