Cooking with Coconut Oil...
Niugini Organic Coconut Oil is a white, semi solid oil. The warmer it is the more liquid it becomes. It has a subtle coconut aroma and adds a very mild pleasant hint of coconut taste to the food. If a liquid oil is preferred, simply heat the coconut oil in a bowl within a bowl of hot water - it will melt quickly.
Coconut oil is easy to use, substitute for other oils and fats in baking, melt in a pan for frying, or brush over your meats and vegetables for roasted!
There are many reported health benefits of coconut oil, some of these include:
- No Trans fats
- Heart friendly, cholesterol free
- Richest natural food source of Lauric Acid
What is Single Origin Coconut Oil?
Single Origin Coconut Oil means unblended coconut oil originating from a particular region with its own unique flavour profile. Similar to wine, single origin coconut oil is shaped by tree variety, soil type and altitude. Coconut oils vary in taste from region to region. This is due to the "terroir" or soil composition, weather patterns, altitude and many subtle variables which influence the coconut it comes from. Niugini Organics raw organic virgin coconut oil is a genuine single origin coconut oil, and the benefits show.
Most if not all other Virgin Coconut Oil (VCO) are blended with oils sourced from several different regions or even countries. This is mainly due to VCO suppliers sourcing the best possible price for bulk VCO - wherever that takes them. However Niugini Organics does NOT indulge in this type of trade as they are very committed to their source - The Napapa coconut farmers of PNG. Read more about Niugini Organic here
Niugini Organics coconut oil is not sourced in bulk. It is milled by the farmer community and jarred, labeled and boxed by them ready for retail shelves in Australia. It is these extra crucial steps in the process performed at source that makes a huge impact in the lives of an otherwise forgotten people.
Niugin Organics is 100% owned by PNG stakeholders who are participants in producing all of their products.
Because coconut oil is high in natural anti-oxidants, it is not necessary to refrigerate it. Simply keep it in the pantry cupboard.
