Loaded with Lauric Acid
Nutiva’s Organic Virgin Coconut Oil is a superfood that hails from Southeast Asia where fresh coconuts are cold-pressed right after harvesting. The fresh meat inside each nut yields a pure, smooth oil that is never deodorized, bleached, or refined. Coconut contains lauric acid, a medium-chain fatty acid also found in human breast milk. Lauric acid makes up about 50% of coconut oil.
Coconut Oil is naturally liquid at warmer temperatures and is semi-solid to solid at cooler temps.
There is no need to refrigerate Nutiva Organic Virgin Coconut Oil. It's best to store it at room temperature out of direct sunlight.
We partnered with Grameen Foundation to launch The FarmerLink Program in the Philippines.This program helps our organic coconut farmers increase crop productivity, deal with crop pests and diseases and increase the sustainability of their farms.
Nutiva is one brand of coconut oil that’s earned high marks both for its nutritional properties and its provenance. Women’s Health rated it a high-quality, dietician-approved product, and The Good Trade praised it for being organic, fair trade, and non-GMO.
frequently asked questions
Is there a difference between virgin and extra-virgin coconut oil?
There is no difference between virgin and extra virgin coconut oil. Unlike olive oil which has multiple pressings, organic coconut oil has just one pressing. While some companies choose to market their coconut oil products as "extra virgin", that designation is not allowed in certain countries, like Canada. Since 2013 Nutiva has marketed our Organic Virgin Coconut Oil with the same name in all countries where our product is available.
What is the difference between refined and unrefined coconut oil?
Refined coconut oil has a neutral scent and taste and is perfect if you want the benefits of coconut without the strong coconut flavor. Unrefined coconut oil, also known as virgin coconut oil, has the rich creamy smell and flavor of fresh coconuts. At Nutiva, we offer both Organic Virgin Coconut Oil and Organic Refined Coconut Oil products.
What is the shelf life of Nutiva's Organic Virgin Coconut Oil?
Both Nutiva's Organic Virgin Coconut Oil and Organic Refined Coconut Oil have a shelf life of two years from the date the product was packed.
