Vitacost Organic Expeller Pressed Coconut Oil - Non-GMO Description
Like a white sandy beach or an umbrella-topped drink, this pure coconut oil is a tempting everyday escape.
Tap into your tropical paradise with our versatile non-GMO coconut oil. From non-GMO coconuts, it serves as a unique substitute for butter and other oils in baking and medium-heat cooking. This island treasure is also known for its incredible moisturizing properties - use on skin and hair for all-over softness.
Non-GMO, vegan & gluten free
A versatile, nourishing oil – use it for cooking or skin/hair care
Expeller pressed for quality and freshness
Ideal for medium heat cooking (pan frying, stir frying or sautéing)
Natural source of medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs), “healthy fats”
No additives or preservatives
Healthier stir-fry dishes. Moister cakes and cookies. Softer skin and smoother hair. All it takes is an oil change—a quick switch from the usual canola or jojoba to the tropical treasure that’s been bringing body benefits to island-minded people around the world for centuries.
Coconut oil, pressed from the flesh or “meat” of fresh coconuts, is a nutrient-rich, flavorful addition to any diet. Better for you than butter and as easy to use as any other cooking oil, this tropical treasure offers nourishing nutrients, including medium chain triglycerides (MCTs), or healthy fats, that are easily absorbed and used by your body.
Solid at room temperature, coconut oil can be easily melted to a pourable liquid when warmed through to above 76 degrees. From tempting toast topping or brownie batter binder to a moisturizing mask or conditioning treatment for your tresses, coconut oil is a kitchen pantry must that travels well to the vanity.
But like summer vacations and tropical escapes, not all coconut oils are created equal. For the freshest flavor and a smooth, pure scoop every time, Vitacost® Expeller Pressed Extra Virgin Coconut Oil is the ticket. No additives, preservatives or gluten, it’s like paradise in a jar.
