This is The First Virgin Coconut Oil Sold in America!
Tropical Traditions began exporting Virgin Coconut Oil from the Philippines to the US in 2001.
At that time, there were only one or two other companies in the US even selling coconut oil, and they were highly refined coconut oils, mostly used for cosmetics and skin care products.
The prevailing belief was that coconut oil was dangerous to consume as an edible oil, due to its high saturated fat content.
But having lived in the Philippines for several years, I was forced to challenge my own thinking that coconut oil was bad, seeing first hand how the older generations in rural areas consumed home-made coconut oil from fresh coconuts, and thriving from a high-fat diet where coconut oil was their main dietary oil.
We started making our own coconut oil by hand, the traditional way, and consuming it as a family. We decided to make this product available to the US market. Distinguishing this hand-made traditional coconut oil from the refined coconut oils mass produced by machine, we called it "Virgin Coconut Oil."
We were the first ones to export Virgin Coconut Oil from the Philippines to the US market. The success overwhelmed us.
Today, more than 17 years later, there are other companies now selling coconut oil again in the US, most of them mass-produced by machines.
But we are committed to time-honored traditional practices that have produced natural coconut oils for hundreds, if not thousands of years.
Our Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil is still made by hand by small-scale family producers in the Philippines.
These producers have learned a lot of things over the years, since most of them have been producing this oil for over 17 years now.
They have learned how to pick out the best coconuts from each harvest that produce the best quality oil.
Independent laboratory analysis shows this to be one of the highest quality coconut oils on the market, having the highest levels of antioxidants using a wet-milling process.
This hand-made artisinal Virgin Coconut Oil is marketed in the US under the Tropical Traditions Gold Label brand. It meets our strictest standards to earn this designation, and is also now part of our Glyphosate-tested program.
Today when you buy Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil, you are buying the highest quality coconut oil we have to offer, and it is still made by hand and benefiting families in the rural areas of the Philippines where the coconuts grow.
We are not aware of any other hand-made coconut oil like it in the market!

Characteristics of Our Gold Label® Virgin Coconut Oil
This Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil is a truly unrefined coconut oil.
Coconuts are used fresh (within 24-48 hours of harvest) from small family farms on Mt. Banahaw and other rural places in Quezon Province, the coconut capital of the Philippines.
Only the highest quality coconuts are hand-picked from each harvest.
The volcanic soil of Mt. Banahaw makes these coconuts some of the most nutritionally rich coconuts in the world!
Testing done in independent laboratories on coconut oil antioxidants reveals higher levels of phenolic antioxidants than other coconut oils.
The fresh coconut meat is shredded and then the water from inside the coconuts is added to make coconut milk (wet-milled). The coconut milk is then allowed to sit for about half a day, while the oil naturally separates from the heavier water.
The oil is then heated for a short time and filtered from the curds (coconut solids). No chemicals are used, and this oil contains no trans fatty acids.
We do NOT mass produce this oil. It is made by families who are coconut farmers using old-fashioned traditional methods that have been used in the Philippines for hundreds of years.
The families who produce the oil are also trained according to GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) standards and re-certified each year.
This high-grade Virgin Coconut Oil has a long shelf life due to the high antioxidant properties. The Gold Label Standard is our highest standard for Virgin Coconut Oil.

The shipping and product delivery is very good. I have already recommended Tropical Traditions to my friends and family. Great company. Lee - Madison, IN
I must state, I normally do not write reviews, however I chose to write a review for Tropical Traditions because of the quality of their products. In a consumer market where finding products that are produced with protecting the natural element is very difficult and some what unheard of, Tropical Traditions has been the only company I've seen or heard of that actually takes the time to produce products the way "Nature" intended. I consume on a daily basis Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil, and as a Bodybuilder it is regularly in my diet all year round. The quality of their products and packaging is top shelf. Nicholas - Hamden, CT
Tropical Traditions Virgin Coconut Oil is the only coconut oil I use and recommend because it’s the freshest, best tasting coconut oil I’ve found. I’ve compared it to others and it won my vote. I recommend it for cooking because it is much more stable than other vegetable oils; when it’s heated it won’t create toxic trans fatty acids. This is the oil I use to cook everything from eggs to veggie stir fries. Bottom line--my food always tastes great. Just ask my husband.
