100% Pure Coconut Oil
Tropical Traditions Pure Coconut Oil
Tropical Traditions 100% pure coconut oil is produced in the Philippines. This high quality coconut oil is made from coconuts in rural areas of the Philippines far away from large cities. This is a traditional coconut oil with no chemical processing, and tested for the presence of glyphosate.
Brian Shilhavy discovered this premium coconut oil while living in the Philippines. The coconut oil is produced in a local coconut oil mill which is supplied by coconut producers from the same area of the Philippines where the Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil is produced.
The coconut oil is produced by the expeller-pressed method using a mechanical extraction process. No solvent extracts such as hexane are used in the refining process. This 100% pure coconut oil is a popular local product in the Philippines, and Tropical Traditions is the only one exporting it into the US market.
We feel this premium coconut oil rivals many of the more expensive coconut oils in the market in both quality and taste. The taste of this coconut oil is very bland due to it being steam deodorized. This coconut oil provides a very neutral and consistent flavor to foods.
Because this coconut oil does not go through the expensive organic certification process, it is much more affordable than other coconut oils sold as "organic" or "virgin," yet we feel it rivals or is superior to many other coconut oils on the market that are over-priced.
The coconuts that are sourced to produce this pure coconut oil come from the volcanic rich soil of Quezon Province in the Philippines, from the same areas where our organic farmers provide organic coconuts to produce our Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil. This is our most affordable coconut oil.
This pure coconut oil is packaged in glass jars and in HDPE food-grade pails.
