It's no secret that coconut oil is arguably the healthiest oil with which to eat and cook.
The high percentage of saturated fatty acids found in coconut oil makes it extremely stable when exposed to heat. Unlike almost all other vegetable oils, coconut oil contains virtually no trans fats and is highly resistant to free radical formation when used for cooking at any temperature.
No other oil comes close to being as safe and healthy for cooking as coconut oil.

Why do people say that coconut oil is by far the best oil with which to cook?
The high percentage of saturated fatty acids found in coconut oil makes it extremely stable when exposed to heat. Unlike almost all other vegetable oils, coconut oil contains virtually no trans fats, and is highly resistant to free radical formation when used for cooking at any temperature.
How many calories and grams of fat are there in a tablespoon of coconut oil?
One tablespoon of coconut oil contains approximately 112.5 calories and 13.05 grams of healthy fat. As mentioned above, the fat in coconut oil is mainly composed of medium chain saturated fatty acids, which are efficiently converted to energy. There are virtually no carbohydrates or protein in coconut oil.
Will eating coconut oil raise my cholesterol?
No. eating coconut oil won't appreciably raise or lower your blood cholesterol; it is essentially "cholesterol neutral.”
Does coconut oil need to be refrigerated?
No, our coconut oil does not need to be refrigerated. It can be left out at room temperature. At 76° F and above, coconut oil is liquid, and below this temperature, it is solid.
What is the shelf life of coconut oil?
The shelf life of our premium coconut oil Tagaloa is at least 3 years.
Why does Tagaloa taste so great, when other brands don’t?
You are absolutely right, not all brands of coconut oil are equal in quality and taste. Our premium virgin coconut oil is produced with the least amount of processing possible, which translates to optimal retention of fresh coconut flavour, naturally occurring vitamin E, healthy saturated fatty acids and other health-promoting nutrients.
As for the actual flavour that’s all down to the quality of our single origin farm coconuts who we have found to produce the best “meat” with the best flavour and texture, aroma.
Aside from cooking in what other ways can you use coconut oil?
Beyond using our premium virgin coconut oil as a cooking oil , another favourite is to use the coconut oil in smoothies. Just add a tablespoon.
Also because our coconut oil is so light, delicate, and delicious in flavour, you can eat a few tablespoons right out of the jar for a quick boost of energy before a workout.
