Exclusively produced by farmers using holistic, regenerative farming practices with a heavy focus on sustainability, our Solspring® Organic Coconut Oil sets the standard for extra virgin organic coconut oil in seven distinct ways:
- Certified organic to USDA standards by International Certification Services (ICS)
- Made from fresh, raw coconuts that are opened within 48 hours of harvesting
- Never produced from dried copra used in cheap oils
- Cold-pressed to preserve nutrients while avoiding the use of heat or solvents
- Produced without refining, bleaching, deodorization or hydrogenation processes
- Made without soy, gluten and genetically engineered (GE) ingredients.
- Exclusively formulated for stability for a long shelf life of two years or more and does not require refrigeration
Because the fresh coconuts in Solspring® Organic Coconut Oil are grown and processed organically, no potentially harmful synthetic fertilizers, additives or chemical solvents are used.
Why You May Want to Reconsider the Type of Cooking Oil You Use
With many uses, some of which many people may not be aware of, organic coconut oil can be enjoyed in several ways.
One of our favorite uses for Solspring® Organic Coconut Oil is cooking and baking.
When it comes to cooking, organic coconut oil offers some major advantages.
Common vegetables oils, such as corn, soy, safflower, sunflower and canola, contain polyunsaturated fats and aren’t the ideal oils to use for cooking. These omega-6 oils are highly susceptible to heat damage because of all the double bonds they have.
In fact, we highly recommend you toss out any of these omega-6 vegetable oils that may be in your kitchen cabinets. There are two main reasons why:
Reason #1: Most people believe that frying creates trans fats, but that is not the biggest issue because while some are created, they are relatively minor. There are far more toxic chemicals produced by frying omega-6 oils than trans fats.
Frying destroys the antioxidants in oils and as such oxidizes the oils. This causes cross-linking, cyclization, double-bond shifts, fragmentation and polymerization of oils that can cause far more damage than trans fats.
- Reason #2: Vegetable oils contribute to the overabundance of omega-6 fats in your diet and the potential imbalance of your omega-6 to omega-3 ratio.
There is only one oil that is stable enough to resist heat-induced damage – organic coconut oil, and it may be used to cook with instead of butter, vegetable oil and others.
Nature’s Richest Source of MCTs
The uniqueness of organic coconut oil is directly related to its chemical structure, or more precisely, the length of its fatty acid chains.
Organic coconut oil is comprised of medium-chain fatty acids (MCFAs), also called medium-chain triglycerides or MCTs.
Organic coconut oil is nature's richest source of these MCTs.
By contrast, most common vegetable or seed oils are comprised of long chain fatty acids (LCFAs), also known as long-chain triglycerides or LCTs.
There are several reasons to explain why these LCTs are not as good for you as the MCTs in organic coconut oil. LCTs…
- Are difficult for the body to break down – they must be packaged with lipoproteins or carrier proteins and require special enzymes for digestion.
- Put more strain on the pancreas, the liver and the entire digestive system.
- Are predominantly stored in the body as fat.
- Can be deposited within arteries in lipid forms, such as cholesterol.
In contrast, the MCTs in organic coconut oil are better for you because they are…
- Smaller, and they permeate cell membranes easily and do not require lipoproteins or special enzymes to be utilized effectively by your body.
- Easily digested, thus putting less strain on your digestive system and avoiding an insulin spike in your bloodstream.
- Sent directly to your liver, where they are immediately converted into energy rather than being stored as fat.
- Efficiently converted into ketones, which are an excellent mitochondrial fuel and have a positive effect on your metabolism.
Don’t Settle for Anything But the Best Brand of Organic Coconut Oil
There are many factors involved in producing organic coconut oil, such as the manufacturing process used to make the oil, the age and type of coconuts being used, and other factors that impact the overall quality and effectiveness of organic coconut oil.
Meeting such high standards is no small feat, but you should not settle for anything less if you want to experience all the potential benefits of organic coconut oil.
If you are currently using or considering other brands, please make sure your selection meets the seven must-have requirements identified above for the highest standard of organic coconut oil.
That's why we’re dedicated to providing a product that we believe is superior to other brands in the market.
In contrast to our Solspring® Organic Coconut Oil, most commercial coconut oils are made from copra, the dried up meat from coconuts. Using the cheaper copra-grade coconut means that the oil extracted may not be sanitary, is more susceptible to rancidity and may not be suitable for human consumption.
Coconut oil must not be refined or purified. In fact, this type of inferior coconut oil is called RBD – refined, bleached and deodorized.
Mass-producing coconut oil in this manner typically uses nutrient-removing heat, chemical solvents, bleaching agents and sometimes even hydrogenating processes, which can create trans fats.
Our Solspring® Organic Coconut Oil is made without heat processing. The fresh coconuts are first cold pressed to make a coconut emulsion. After being chilled to help pull out the oils, the milk goes through a centrifuge, where the pure oil spins away from the water layer. This results in a pure and natural, unrefined and highly stable organic coconut oil.
