What is coconut oil? Coconut oil is edible oil made from the flesh of coconuts. Healthful Pets Coconut oil is the finest quality virgin coconut oil – 100% organic, sealed with foil to ensure freshness. Virgin coconut oil is mechanically pressed without heat, from the fresh meat of coconuts. Virgin Coconut Oil is produced using the fresh, mature kernel of only the highest quality coconuts. The coconut oil has not undergone any chemical refining, bleaching or deodorising or any other process leading to the alteration of the nature of the oil. Virgin coconut oil is the purest form of coconut oil and has a colourless appearance.
Ethically Sourced: Healthful Pets Coconut Oil is "picked, pressed and packed at origin resulting in the finest quality Virgin Coconut Oil possible by maximising freshness, aroma and taste. This also creates more employment both directly and indirectly in the country of origin as well as minimising the Carbon Footprint of the coconut industry on a Global basis as no energy hungry reheating is needed in user nations for repacking.
What are the Benefits?: Many of the benefits associated with virgin coconut oil are due to the high lauric acid content (roughly half of the fat in coconut oil), together with myristic acid, caprylic acid, capric acid, caproic acid, which are all medium chain fatty acids. These are great sources of energy and can increase the rate of metabolism in your body. Also these medium chained fatty acids have anti-microbial, anti-virall and anti-fungal properties – lauric acid converts to monolaurin which has anti-microbial, anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties.
What does cold pressed mean? This is the extraction method. Cold pressed is extracted at the lowest possible temperature, avoiding heat which degrades oils of their nutritional benefits in addition to exposing the oil to toxins.
Storage: Virgin coconut oil is best stored in a cool dry place and is usually in a solid form but becomes liquid between 18°C and 24°C. The properties of the oil are not affected during the transition from solid to liquid to solid.
