About Organic Raw Coconut Oil Extra Virgin

Extra Virgin Coconut Oil from Real Foods. This is a pure form of virgin coconut oil that has not been hydrogenated, bleached, refined or deodorised. It can be used in cooking, baking and added raw to recipes and meals. Coconut oil has long been recognised as a healthy nutrition option and is equally kind to the outside of the body as a skin or hair conditioner.

Coconut oil is known as an 'energy fat', embraced by dieters, athletes, and body builders. Rich in Lauric acid (about 50%), coconut oil is processed in the liver where it is converted directly into energy. Coconut oil is anti-viral, antibacterial, and anti-fungal. Coconut oil can provide a quick boost in energy and the valuable medium chain triglycerides will help reduce inflammation and strengthen immunity. It is high in fat, but it is fat in medium chain fatty acids, not the trans fatty acids that can be so damaging.

The supplier has confirmed that this is a raw product and not processed at heats above 42 degrees.

I like this coconut oil too and it is very well priced at the moment! Also, Real Foods kindly found out for me that their supplier says that all their produce is harvested by human hand and in some instances mechanised technology is used. (This means that Monkeys aren't made to pick the coconuts and don't spend their lives on a tether in case they run away.)

This coconut oil is so delicious I have to stop myself from eating it straight out of the jar! Great for cooking, smoothies, anything you can think of. Lovely smooth taste, and great price too.

fantastic oil. Good price too.

I love this coconut oil, partly because it comes in a sturdy glass jar so you can spoon it straight out or put it in a bowl of hot water to liquefy it - MUCH better than a bottle! Useful stuff, and oddly amazing on popcorn

Bought a jar of this and have been using it for everything! Really versatile and not just for cooking... 5 stars every time.

This coconut oil is the best I have tasted yet, superb quality I have taken it for a while now to support my thyroid condition, I use it as a mouthwash every morning to clean my mouth and you have to spit it out to remove the bacteria that it has collected from your mouth, my teeth have all tightened up.  I cook everything with it and it is much healthier as it does not burn at high temperatures. I also use it on my husband's skin as he has severe eczema and it is a marvellous moisturiser and no nasty products added as there is in normal eczema products. I cured my little dogs pyoderma with coconut oil. It is amazing stuff. Try it you wont be disappointed

I like that this coconut oil comes in a glass jar, as I stay away from plastic packaging as much as possible.

Coconut oil is one of the healthiest oils to cook with. It is also great for raw food preparation, where the oil has to be gently warmed before being incorporated in anything from soups to cakes to chocolates. It is Real Foods brand, so you can buy as little (for freshness) or as much (for value) as you want. Even the small sizes are great value, without compromising on quality, as this is organic extra virgin coconut oil. Coconut oil is also great for dry hair and skin. You can use it to condition split ends, as a facial cleansing oil (will gently remove even waterproof mascara) and to make your own deodorant (basically coconut oil + bicarbonate of soda), as coconut oil has natural antibacterial properties.

Easy Raw Vegan Chocolate Sauce Recipe

Summary: It doesn't get any easier. Whip up this tasty raw vegan chocolate sauce in minutes from 3 main ingredients : coconut oil, cacao powder and a sweetener of your choice. The vanilla and the salt are optional, but they do lift and round up the flavours beautifully. Whether you eat it straight from the spoon, use it as an icing on a raw cake or to coat raw truffles, as a dip for fruits (chopped pear and banana work exceptionally well for a chocolate fondue) ..., this chocolate wonder will make everything a little more delicious. I like to pour it over banana and mixed berries raw vegan ice cream, for the best breakfast (yes, ice cream for breakfast) in the world ! When poured on the cold ice cream, the chocolate sauce sets, delivering delightful chocolate snaps.

Wholegrain Spelt Fruit Carrot Cake Recipe

Summary: This carrot cake uses sprouted wholemeal Spelt flour rather than plain wheat white flour, for enhanced nutrition. The other health boosting secret ingredients in this carrot cake are the bananas and the dried fruits, which help reduce the amount of sugar needed. Also, the bananas make the cake really moist ; it keeps fresh in an airtight tin. The cake is quite indulgent, so small slices are great – it would easily serve 20. Leave the sugar out altogether, if you didn’t want a very sweet cake. If you want a healthier cake with a lower fat content, skip the icing. If you do make the icing, but you want to avoid food colouring, or you don't have a piping bag, you could simply decorate the cake by arranging grated carrot shreds in a pretty pattern on top of the white icing.
