Before I get into the review portion of this post I want to give you a little insight as to what the Gold Label
Virgin Coconut Oil is about and I believe they said it best:
This Tropical Traditions Virgin Coconut Oil is unrefined and is made with organic coconuts. Fresh coconuts are used and only the best are hand-picked from each harvest. The fresh coconut meat is then shredded and then cold-pressed using the water that is inside of the coconut to make coconut milk. The milk is then allowed to sit for about 12 hours while the oil naturally separates from the milk.
You use this oil just as you would vegetable oil, or the like, and the taste is nothing short of great. I was a bit apprehensive, as you can probably imagine, as I had never tried anything other than the standard vegetable or canola oil in all of the years that I had been cooking. So, I went to their website and instantly found a couple of recipes that made my mouth water.
Can we say… yummy?
So did Mom!
In addition, I can not - due to FDA & FTC rules - make any claims in regard to the health benefits directly on my blog, but I would highly recommend you visiting their website and learning more about it yourself. I can contest to the fact that it took my already high level of interest and doubled it.
