Organic Coconut Oil

Details: Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil, 32 fl. oz bottle.  Serving size is 1 Tbsp, with 64 servings per bottle.  No sodium, cholesterol, trans fat, carbohydrates or proteins.  100% Organic Virgin Coconut Oil.  Certified Orgaic by Organic Certifiers.  Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil is made from organic, fresh coconuts in rural areas of the Philippines.  Small scale family businesses product this oil in small batches.  Store away from sunlight.  Does not need to be refrigerated.

Disclaimer: I received a free 32oz bottle from Tropical Traditions via Tomoson in exchange for an honest non biased product review.  I will only recommend products that I have persoanlly tested, tried and deem good.

My Review: I love this coconut oil.  I don't usually buy coconut oil, but since being with my Mother-In-Law this past year, she uses a lot of coconut oil, so I've used about 4 different brands.  This brand is by far the most amazing coconut oil brand I've seen.  Looking at the coconut oil, in its solid form, through the glass bottle you can see how pure, and white and natural it looks.  Once you open the bottle and every time you open it, you can smell the coconut scent because of the Virgin organic coconuts used to make this oil.  Coconut oil easily and quickly turns from a solid to a liquid at room temperature, but this glass bottle keeps the oil from going liquid inside it.  I've used this oil to 1. season my Ozeri Eco Friendly frying pans, 2. cook gluten free cupcakes, 3. make all natural chocolate for dipping fruit and things in, 4. finger nail cuticle care and much more.  I'm very impressed with the quality, and even though the price is steep, for what you get, and it being Organic, I can't complain, because its totally worth every penny!

It's all seasoned: I added extra so you can see the oil

My burner is on, and the oil is heating up and beading

perfect looking after being cooked!

Pros: smells great, looks great, tastes great, keeps your GREEN kitchen ware clean and healthy

Cons: none

Extra:  So at the beginning of this review, I mentioned that my Mother-In-Law buys a lot of coconut oil, and she had her favorites, but over the past year we've tried 4-5 different brands.  Here is a comparison of her favorite coconut oil verses Tropical Traditions coconut oil.  Just looking at everything on both bottles, I am sold on which to choose.

Lou Ana is a 30 fl oz bottle Tropical Traditions is 32 fl oz

Both say 100% coconut oil as the only ingredient

Tropical Traditions is USDA Organic
