About Organic Raw Extra Virgin Coconut Oil

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.

This is a very manageable  o il. It melts in th palm of th hand, so if yu want to massage your skin or hair, it;s easy to put  alittle bit in your hand and run with the other hand.
This is a very pure oil, it tastes beautiful. I put it raw in my vegetables to have my dose to help smoothing my digestion. I had reflux, but as I started with a teaspoon of oil, the reflux has disappeared and my digestion has balanced , constipation has eased completely. I feel at ease with this marvellous oil. A litttle bit on my face makes it feel good after shaving. It's really an all round remedy, so pleasant too. Highly recommended.

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

By Tilly White on 06/08/2014

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.

By Adam Hudson on 20/05/2013

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.

I have been surprised how good this is to cook with

Natural Cream Deodorant Recipe

Summary: What is wrong with traditional deodorants ? Should you be making your own deodorant ? Traditional deodorants work by combining 2 main actions : 1. Killing all bacteria on the underarm skin, disrupting the skin microbiome. And 2. Using Aluminium salts to stop perspiration by blocking sweat ducts, keeping odour causing bacteria in check, as they need a moist environment to multiply. Both actions are very un-natural, and not only using traditional deodorants can make the problem worse, Aluminium is absorbed through the skin and has been found in cancerous breast tissue, so the general advice is now to avoid it. In addition to the potential health risk, making your own deodorant and storing it in a reusable glass jar will contribute to reducing the amount of waste, plastic and otherwise, that you produce. Our natural gentle cream deodorant is a great alternative to chemical deodorants. It is antibacterial thanks to the coconut oil, skin softening thanks to the cocoa and shea butter, the Sodium Bicarbonate gently balances the skin pH, the arrowroot or clay absorb humidity, the probiotics help balance the skin microbiome, and finally the essential oils provide natural scent. Lavender and patchouli is a lovely, gender neutral combination. You could use only coconut oil, but substituting some of the coconut oil with cocoa butter and shea butter will really soften the skin, especially if you have dry or sensitive underarm skin or if you shave your underarms. By adding the probiotics, you increase the odour protection, as the beneficial bacteria limits the development of the odour creating bacteria. Choose probiotics that are stable at room temperature, as this way you will be able to keep your deodorant in the bathroom rather than in the fridge. The recipe makes enough to fill a 60ml jar.

Gluten Free Beetroot Buckwheat Crepes Recipe

Summary: Buckwheat is actually not related to wheat at all, it is actually a seed from the same family as rhubarb. Buckwheat is naturally gluten-free, and it is a source of complete protein, as it contains all 9 essential amino acids. Traditional Galettes de Sarrasin as they are called in Brittany, France, are savoury crepes made with just 3 ingredients : wholemeal buckwheat flour, water and salt. Some less traditional recipes call for the inclusion of some wheat flour, milk, or half milk - half water, or even the addition of an egg to make the batter easier to work with. Here I stay close to the tradition by using buckwheat flour only, which makes the crepes gluten-free. You could use vegan milk of your choice for softer crepes. I also add a little beetroot powder for a pretty pink colour. Serve with strawberry, raspberry or mixed berry jam or compote to maximise the pink factor.
