Focus On: Lauric acid : 7 grams per serving. Pure coconut oil contains about 50 percent lauric acid, and is the most abundant natural source of lauric acid available.
Oils containing MCT’s (Medium-chain triacylglycerols) such as Lauric Acid are absorbed more rapidly than conventional fats. Some research suggest that the benefits of lauric acid are due to how the body uses it. The majority of lauric acid is sent directly to the liver, where it’s converted to energy rather than stored as fat. When compared with other saturated fats, lauric acid contributes the least to fat storage

La Tourangelle Organic Virgin Coconut oil is made using a dry extraction process: ripe organic certified coconuts (12 months old) are picked and hand-shelled (green pairing is also removed) within a few days of harvest. The fresh, food grade white coconut meat is then dried at a low temperature (not exceeding 131Fº) to remove moisture. The dried coconut meat is then expeller-pressed to extract delicious virgin coconut oil. No further processing is required beside filtering, making it a true virgin oil. Loaded with antioxidants and with a rich coconut flavor, Organic Virgin Coconut Oil is our best seller.

A replacement for butter: It can easily be used to replace butter in many circumstances, also providing a delicious coconut flavor.

Blend it into coffee: The high levels of MCTs help provide a more lasting effect to the caffeine in your coffee as well as giving your brew the creamy coconut taste.

Use it in baking: It is fantastic in baking recipes and as shortening.

Great for smoothies: Add a tablespoon to your smoothies to give it an energy boost and a portion of your daily fat content.

Amazing for massage: It’s a wonderful tool for massage, providing deep moisturizing of the skin and reducing skin on skin friction.

Part of you Breakfast routine: a spoonful of coconut oil and a handful of cereal.

Extra energy before a game: brown rice topped with coconut oil

For you hair: hair mask once a month

Cool, dark place.
