Virgin Coconut Oil, Organic - 54 oz.
Forget about the lime in the coconut. NOW Real Food® Organic Virgin Coconut Oil tastes and smells so good, and is so healthful and versatile, nothing else is needed to enjoy the fantastic benefits of this premium-grade nutritional oil. A cold-pressed method is used to preserve the medium chain triglycerides (MCTs) and beneficial fatty acids naturally found in coconuts. This produces an unrefined edible oil that’s free of trans fats and bursting with goodness and flavor.
Our Organic Virgin Coconut Oil is delicious on its own (try a tablespoon once or twice daily with meals) and it makes an excellent addition to many recipes. Use it for cooking and baking in place of less healthy cooking oils or add it to your favorite smoothie. Use it as a spread on your favorite breads and muffins or add a subtle hint of tropical sweetness to your popcorn. However you use it, NOW Real Food® Organic Virgin Coconut Oil is an ideal way to add healthy fatty acids to your diet.
