100% Organic Virgin Coconut Oil
"The Life Saving and Health Giving Oil!"
You all know that we are passionate about Extra Virgin Olive Oil! We are equally excited to add 100% Organic Virgin Coconut Oil (VCO) that has been cold processed from beginning to end to our stock of elite oils.
The Olive Bar is the sole importer and exclusive U.S. distributor of the Santa Maria 100% Virgin Coconut Oil from Amazing Foods Corp in the Philippines. We have done our homework on this one and have even flown to the Philippines to meet with our supplier and to see the process for ourselves. We feel we have chosen the best coconut oil in the world.
Cold Processed Coconut Oil
Santa Maria VCO is pure, unrefined, unbleached, non-deodorized and non-hydrogenated. It has no preservatives, no cholesterol, no chemicals added and no artificial flavors or colors.
Santa Maria Organic Virgin Coconut Oil (VCO) is Cold-Processed, A-No-Heat method (ANH), no-cooking, at any point of its manufacture to retain all of its micro-nutrients, short and medium fatty acids, vitamins A, C and tocopherol (vitamin E). It takes 28 to 30 days to produce Santa Maria Virgin Coconut Oil because heat is not used in any part of the production process.
The ANH method gives Santa Maria Virgin Coconut Oil advantages over mass produced and highly processed coconut oils that use heat to accelerate the production process.
