Hi JoAnna,

Thank you for your reply! I apologize for the misinformation. The facility that processes our coconut oil and coconut products is dedicated to coconut products only. It is free of gluten, milk/dairy, peanut, and tree nuts. Would you please let me know who you spoke with so I can update them?

Have a wonderful day!

Products Description:
 Our white kernel and whole kernel VCO is cold-pressed from fresh carefully dried coconuts, giving it a delicious aroma. Versatile and healthy, VCO can be used for stir-frying, sauces, baking and body care. Extensive field research in the tropics shows that people who follow a traditional diet high in coconut oil enjoy excellent cardiovascular health. Clinical research confirms that VCO improves blood cholesterol by increasing the ratio of HDL to LDL cholesterol, due in part to saturated medium chain fatty acids (MCT's) such as lauric.
Whole kernel oil, which is made from the kernel with its "parings" is more nutritious and has a slightly nuttier flavor whereas white kernel oil offers a choice to consumers who are familiar with this grade. Both grades are versatile and healthy along with being organic and fair trade.

  1. I realize that this is a post from quite some time ago - but I'm a new mom with a babe with a litany of allergies including peanut, egg and dairy. We just completed a coconut challenge and this post has been beyond helpful - thank you, thank you, thank you!

  2. 3 Studies SHOW Why Coconut Oil Kills Belly Fat.

    This means that you literally burn fat by eating Coconut Fat (in addition to coconut milk, coconut cream and coconut oil).

    These 3 researches from big medicinal magazines are sure to turn the traditional nutrition world upside down!
