Product Description

Product Description

Product Profile

Traditionally used in Asian cuisine, coconut oil has experienced a renaissance in the modern kitchen. Its stability to both heat and oxygen makes it versatile for many cooking and baking purposes. In fact, vegan recipes for baked-goods often rely on coconut oil for its functional characteristics. And the extra-virgin variety, in particular, is valued for imparting a delicate coconut flavor. In addition to its culinary attributes, coconut oil contributes to a healthy diet, primarily via its medium chain triglyceride (MCT) content. Coconut oil contains over 50% of its fat content as MCT. But what makes MCT a “good” fat?


Distinguishing Features:

  • Organic Coconut Oil
  • Only non-GMO coconuts used
  • Source of MCT
  • 100% unrefined and expeller pressed
  • Solvent-free processing
Fat Metabolism: Length Matters

Although MCT are technically composed of “saturated” fatty acids, their shorter chain-length causes the body to handle them differently from the long chain triglycerides (LCT) typically found in food. Unlike LCT, MCT do not require the intestinal lymphatic system or bile salts for intestinal absorption, but instead enter the body via the portal system. Their short stature also makes them a readily available cellular energy source via ketone bodies. MCT are abundant in breast milk and have long been valued as a source of fuel (i. e. calories) that is efficiently absorbed and metabolized in adults.

Clinically, MCT are often given to those who cannot absorb conventional long chain fatty acids. Yet it should be kept in mind that MCT do not contain essential fatty acids, and therefore are normally only substituted for 50-70% of dietary fat. However, some evidence suggests that the absorption of long chain triglycerides may be improved if combined with MCT.

Coconut Fats And The Heart

We owe some understanding of the effects of MCT to the citizens of Sri Lanka. In Sri Lanka, a significant amount of dietary fat consists of MCT from coconut oil, and data indicate that the citizens of Sri Lanka score particularly high in the area of heart-health. This realization led nutritional and medical researchers to look at the effects of coconut oil MCT in more depth.

Surprisingly, feeding MCT to rats resulted in animals with lower body weights and excellent survival rates, effects that tend to be the exact opposite of those typically associated with saturated fat. This is important because it’s well known that a healthy body weight is directly correlated with heart and artery function, particularly as we age. Furthermore, in those receiving coconut MCT because they are undernourished or possess lipid absorption/metabolism defects, MCT have been shown to augment energy generation in the heart. And in fact, current research evidences the notion that suboptimal heart function may be associated with heart-energy deficiency.

These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.

MCT Metabolism

From a nutritional standpoint, MCT have traditionally been regarded as biologically inert substances, merely serving as a source of fuel (i.e. calories) that is more efficiently metabolized compared with long chain triglycerides (LCT) found in typical food oils. This quality of MCT has been shown to offer benefits depending on the health situation. Unlike LCT, MCT do not require the intestinal lymphatic system or bile salts for absorption, and hence they are referred to as "quick fuel."

For this reason, MCT are often given to people who have difficulty absorbing conventional long chain fatty acids. MCT do not contain essential fatty acids, and therefore they are normally only substituted for up to 50-70 percent of dietary fat. However, some evidence suggests that the absorption of long chain triglycerides may be improved if combined with MCT. MCT are metabolized primarily in the liver. The safety of MCT consumption in humans is not a concern, as several clinical trials have shown no adverse effect from levels of 1 gram per kilogram of body weight per day.

Heart Function

We owe a portion of our understanding of the effects of MCT on the heart to the citizens of Sri Lanka. In Sri Lanka, a significant amount of dietary fat consists of MCT from coconut oil, and data indicate that the citizens of Sri Lanka score particularly high in the area of heart-health. This realization led nutritional and medical researchers to look at the effects of coconut oil MCT in more depth.

Feeding MCT to rats resulted in animals with lower body weights, a smaller amount of fat deposits and excellent survival rates.* Maintenance of a healthy body weight supports heart and artery function as we age. MCT consumption is also associated with healthy levels of serum and liver cholesterol within a normal range.* Furthermore, in a double-blind study, 1.7 g of MCT daily at breakfast significantly promoted healthy cholesterol levels within a normal range compared to that of the LCT group at 8 weeks.* Other studies have shown positive effects on triglycerides, within a normal range.*

MCT have physical and metabolic properties that are distinct from those of long-chain fatty acids, making them a readily available cellular energy source.* These properties have been used advantageously in clinics for more than 50 years in people who are either undernourished or possess lipid absorption and long-chain fatty acid oxidation defects. In this latter contingent, nutritional interventions with MCT have been shown to promote healthy heart function.* Current research supports the notion that suboptimal heart function is associated with heart-energy deficiency, and that MCT can be helpful in providing support.*

Healthy Body Mass

Some research suggests that MCT may support metabolic rate and energy expenditures in the body when substituted in the diet for other types of fat.* MCT may induce satiety, leading to decreased consumption of calories.* Increased metabolic rate and decreased caloric intake may lead to a decrease in body fat. MCT contain 6 to 8.5 kcal per gram.

In one study conducted in a group of 40 subjects, randomized into 2 test groups, MCT or corn oil was administered as part of daily food intake for 90 days. The MCT group showed a significant reduction in body weight. In a double-blind crossover study, subjects were asked to keep their usual lifestyle, including diet and physical activity while consuming MCT as part of their diet. The results indicated that body fat mass was significantly lower after 3 weeks when consuming MCT compared to soybean oil. These results suggest that coconut oil, and the MCT found within, may have a role in the promotion of weight management.*

I'm Extremely Disappointed with this Product, and will never Order it again.
Joseph A Piscitelli
A friend recommended this for me to use for high heat cooking (healthier option), and it works great and has a totally neutral taste.
M. Rivkin
My husband has very dry sensitive skin and the coconut oil has helped with his scratching.

I never used Coconut Oil of any kind, I like Coconut but not a Big Fan. I was surprised to see that "Jarrow Formulas Coconut Oil" is Congealed into a White Thick Paste and with very little aroma of Coconut. An Oil that is Good for just about everything, 1 Tablespoon has 120 Calories, I have used it in Baking and Cooking instead of Butter with excellent results and the aroma of Coconut is not noticeable. I have also applied it to my Face, made it Nice and Soft...Next I want to try it on my Scalp to see if it will Grow Thicker Hair...

Coconut Oil is Recommended as a Supplement, Take 1 Tablespoon 1 to 4 times daily, maybe use it as a Spread or added to Salad Dressings and Smoothies

FOR COOKING: Use it in Place of Butter, Margarine, Shortening or other Cooking Oils for Baking or Frying in Temperatures up to 350F degrees

FOR SKIN CARE: Use it as a Moisturizer Lotion, Place Jar in warm water to Liquefy, Massage small amounts onto the Skin

FOR HAIR CARE: Use it as a Conditioner, Place Jar in warm water to Liquefy, then apply 2 teaspoons to the Hair 1 to 2 Hours before Washing

Coconut Oil is a Natural Energy, it contains High levels of Healthy type of Fat called MCTs "Medium Change Triglycerides" Pure Form of Coconut Oil, MCTs are different from other Fats primarily because they are digested much more easily and efficiently. This makes an extremely efficient Energy Source much more than Sugar. Also MCTs don't add to Fat Cells or form Artery Hardening Plaque as readily as other Fats. Coconut Oil is a Good addition to my Physical Activity Exercise and Weight Loss Programs. I like the Pure Extra Virgin Coconut Oil to the point that has become a Staple in my Kitchen! ...Thank You D.D.

I love coconut oil for it's high heat tolerance and for putting a great color on veggies but I don't always want the hefty coconut flavor. This is the perfect solution. Great product I'll be buying again for sure.

The main reason I like this particular coconut oil is that it doesn't have the coconut flavor or scent. While I love the scent of coconut, I don't want it in what I'm cooking. And, I use the other jar as a skin moisturizer. My husband has very dry sensitive skin and the coconut oil has helped with his scratching. However, he didn't like the coconut scent of some of the other oils I used. This is perfect for him.

Likely the most disgusting coconut oil I've ever had. I've had plenty of coconut oil in my day. I've had it from Trader Joes, Nutiva, and a grocery store brand. I've had expeller pressed, cold pressed, and centrifuged.

This tastes like it is loaded with chemicals. I got it because it was 3 bucks cheaper than nutiva. I will now splurge on myself and spend the extra money for Nutiva coconut oil.

I placed an order for 2 - 2 packs and now I have 4 bottles of this stuff.. I'm of the waste not mindset, and will endure this coconut oil until it is gone.

I use this for my hair, and this package is such a great deal! The oil is lovely, much less sweet-smelling than others I've tried so that I don't walk around smelling like a cookie!
