KULAU Organic Coconut Oil
KULAU Organic Coconut Oil is cold pressed from fresh coconuts - not dried desiccated coconut. Coconut has a wide variety of applications in the kitchen and in natural cosmetics.
Coconut oil is rich in natural lauric acid, it is cholesterol-free, and contains no colorings or preservatives. In the kitchen, coconut oil gives dishes a subtle note of coconut without being too overpowering. Coconut oil is much more heat-tolerant than other cold-pressed vegetable oils, so even at very high temperatures, such as in wok-frying or in the oven, no trans fats are produced. Coconut oil is especially suitable for vegans or people with lactose-intolerance, as it can also be used as a substitute for butter.
In raw cuisine, coconut oil is particularly popular, as it binds ingredients smoothly and goes well with a great number of raw food recipes. In natural cosmetics it has proven particularly beneficial - either pure or blended with essential oils - for dry skin or hair that needs that bit of extra care.

Besides its fine natural coconut aroma and heat tolerance, the high lauric acid content is probably the main reason for coconut oil's rapidly increasing international popularity. According to recent studies, lauric acid could play a decisive role in building and strengthening the human immune system.
Origin and Production
