I have some exciting news to share! I was recently sent a 32 oz. jar of Gold Label Virgin Coconut oil from the kind people at Tropical Traditions to try out. They have offered for me to host a giveaway where one lucky Edible Sound Bites reader will win their own 32 oz. jar of virgin coconut oil.
If you know me already then you probably know how much importance I place on healthy fats and their place within a clean diet. Coconut oil is no exception. I have been looking for a good quality coconut oil for a while now and I am happy to say I've found one. I love cooking and baking with it and using it as a replacment for regular butter like I did with this recipe for vegan chocolate chip cookies.
Here are just a few ways to use it:
- Use it as your main cooking oil; it is heat stable and will not become toxic under high heat.
- Dips, sauces and salad dressings
- Vegan pie pastry
- Homemade fudge and cookies
- Dairy-free baking
When I first opend the jar I was instantly hit with the aroma of fresh coconuts. Amazing! That's how I knew it was the real thing. Coconut oil should smell like a tropical vacation should. This is how you know you have a good quality coconut oil that is unrefined. The smell says it all. Refined coconut oils are processed with high heat and/or chemicals which removes and destroys the vital nutrients of the oil. When it has undergone this process it is tasteless and odorless. Virgin coconut oil is made from fresh coconut without high heat or chemicals.
You should also know that it's non-GMO and organic. The coconuts that Tropical Traditions uses are so fresh that they are processed within 24 hours of being picked and theirs have twice the antioxidants of other coconut oils on the market. Their products aren't cheap but you get what you pay for. Excellent quality.
Tropical Traditions also carries other varieties of affordable high quality coconut oil. Visit their website to check on current sales, to learn about the many uses of coconut oil, and to read about all the advantages of buying coconut oil online. Since the FDA does not want us to discuss the health benefits of coconut oil on a page where it is being sold or given away, here is the best website to read about the health benefits of coconut oil.
Tropical Traditions is America’s source for coconut oil. Their Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil is hand crafted in small batches by family producers, and it is the highest quality coconut oil they offer. You can read more about how virgin coconut oil is different from other coconut oils on their website: What is Virgin Coconut Oil?
