Organic Virgin Coconut Oil
Cocomate’s Organic Tropical Virgin Coconut Oil is harvested and produced in Tropical Sri Lanka in accordance with Organic Principals and Certified to meet international Regulations. It is made from fresh coconut without high heat or chemicals.
Due to the long list of health benefits that are offered in Virgin Coconut Oil, many brands capitalize on that aspect and try to sell their own products without giving a second thought on the quality. There is a wide range of quality among them and the methods and care used in the process determine the final quality of the product.
High-quality virgin coconut oil should be snow white in colour when it is solid, and water clear when liquid. Virgin coconut oils should always retain a coconutty smell and taste. If not, they have been highly refined. If they have no flavour they are essentially RBD oil, even if they did come from fresh coconut.
Some virgin coconut oils have a very strong flavour or smell. If the oil does not taste and smell like fresh coconut, it is definitely of poor quality and primarily caused due to contaminates and not coconut. The very best virgin coconut oils do not have a strong roasted or smoky taste or smell. They should have a very mild coconut aroma and flavour. The flavour should not be overpowering, but just mild enough to enjoy without altering the flavour of the food it’s used with.
