Niugini organic virgin raw coconut oil is single origin from Papua New Guinea, has a subtle coconut aroma adds a very mild pleasant hint of coconut to food. This oil is very heat stable, with a smoke point of about 180 degrees C, so it makes an excellent cooking and frying 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 Virgin Coconut Oil is a genuine single origin coconut oil , and the benefits show. Many of the 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.
