Our coconut oil differs from every other company because we are currently the only coconut oil that has a patented process that allows us to keep any type of chemical, preservative, solvent, filler, or any other type of additive. We never heat our coconuts above 97ºF during the pulling process so we never lose any of its nutritional value. It also allows our coconut oil to stay alkaline based, whereas most other coconut oils heat their coconuts and it becomes a bit acidic. this irritates the stomach and digestive tract, whereas our coconut oil regulates it. We are also a first pressed coconut oil, whereas other cheaper coconut oil options are often second or third pressed. This means that with each press, it loses nutritional value and it loses its raw base. Our prices come from the quality of the product. Our coconut oil is the best alkaline based product that you can purchase on the market.
