La Tourangelle Organic Refined Coconut Oil is a fine hexane-free oil that contains great dietary nutrients such as MCT’s (medium chain triglycerids), lauric acid and no transfat. Use it as primary cooking and body care oil and benefit from its nutrients and antioxidants.
Ripe organic coconuts (12 months old) are picked and shelled before being dried and expeller-pressed (green pairing is not removed). The organic crude coconut oil is then physically refined (organic certified process – technically a deodorization process using steam) to remove impurities, flavor and odor. The result is a clean and crisp coconut oil with a very similar fatty acid composition to virgin coconut oil but more versatile with its neutral flavor.
Temperature: Smoke point 350ºF.The melting point of coconut oil is generally quoted as being 76ºF (24ºC). If the temperature is above 76ºF, the oil will be liquid. If the temperature is below 76 ºF, it will become solid. This occurrence in no way affects the oil.
Storage: Store in a cool, dry place.
Shelf Life: Unopened: 18-month shelf life - Opened: best used within 6 months
