The Coconut Oil is wet milled and cold pressed on the same day it is harvested! This is NOT the case with most coconut oil in Australia. Most oil is pressed from dried copra, sourced from large stockpiles held by the big processors. The shelf life clock starts ticking the moment coconut meat is removed from the nut. Therefore, if fresh meat is dehydrated and stored as copra, intrinsic anti-oxidants are called upon to retard natural oxidation that leads to rancidity. The advantage of wet milled coconut oil is that all the anti-oxidants are captured on the day of harvest! Unlike most other oils, coconut oil has a high smoke point and is an amazing saturated fat for the body. This means that all of the nutrients are kept intact when cooked, allowing maximum nutrient intake for you and your family, making it the BEST oil to cook with. The health benefits of coconut oil include cholesterol maintenance, boosted immune system, proper digestion and regulated metabolism. Coconut oil is a pantry essential, as it can also be used as sunscreen, hair care and mouth wash as well.
