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.*

Size Name: 16 oz Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
We've used the Nutiva organic extra virgin coconut oil for some time, and thought it would be good to try this coconut oil from Jarrow and compare.

We've been really happy with the Nutiva and wondered how much a difference (if any) we could tell from a different organic extra virgin coconut oil.

- Taste -

The first thing we noticed with the Jarrow (this coconut oil) is that it tasted for lack of a better word...more "coconutty." It's not a bad thing, in fact the taste is quite pleasant.

- Smell -

Definitely smells more coconutty than the Nutiva. It's not strong or overbearing. It smells pretty good, but this will depend on your olfactory preferences.

- Texture -

The Nutiva seems to be a little more smooth and the Jarrow a little more flakey when trying to spread or get it out of the container (in solid state).

The Jarrow labeling states for best results to refrigerate after opening. Well...that makes it quite hard to scoop out.

- Appearance -

The Nutiva has a noticeable yellow hue to it. The Jarrow is pure white. Side by side, you can really see the difference.

- Process -

Both products state Organic, extra virgin, and unrefined. However, the Jarrow says it is expeller pressed while the Nutiva is cold pressed?

Which is better? Cold or expeller pressed? After researching a bit, it looks like unfortunately, the term "cold pressed" can be used even when the process is not really cold pressed. So it's important to look up a company's process on their website. Nutiva seems good, but it's hard to always be sure.

Some people use this as a cooking oil for high temps and also for eating raw. Well, I use it in massage therapy. This is a phenominal product and because it is cold pressed still has the scent of coconut. The aroma is not overwhelming and does not linger on the skin. Because this oil is solid at less than 76 degrees you have to warm it to liquify. To keep from becoming rancid, once open it should be kept in the refrigerator. It contains no preservatives. It will absolutely stain your linens as it is very thick. To remove spray PAM or other brand aerosol anti stick cooking spray on the stain. It will then launder right out. Just know that a soapy wash will not remove this. As a skin treatment Jarrow and Garden of Life are the premier coconut oil perveyors. A+. 2-3 oz is enough for one massage. I use a scale to weigh out for each client, which everyone should do to avoid cross contamination. Try.

I have tried other coconut oils. They can taste funny. The Jarrow Extra Virgin tastes great, like a delicious light coconut flavor that adds a great boost to stir-fry, meats, even scrambled eggs taste terrific. The Jarrow regular coconut oil (not extra-virgin) is also nice but has no taste. I like this one best and will continue to buy it. Yum yum! Also makes a fun candy coating for bananas when mixed with unsweetened cocoa powder and a little cinnamon. Dip banana slices in the mixture and refrigerate until solid. Enjoy!

This extra virgin coconut oil is in white color, very very pure, and the taste of it is just heavenly. I use this oil to cook recently and surprisingly it goes very well with some vegetables (especially bok choy, cabbage) and eggs too.

I started to use this oil after reading some research saying coconut oil is a good healthy oil comparing to those hydrogenated vegetable oil. Unexpectedly after taking this coconut oil for three weeks, I realized that my acid reflux symptom mainly stomach pain was completely gone. Now three months have passed, I have not had any stomach pain. To give you some background I had to take acid reducing meds from time to time in the last two years.

I also use this coconut oil as body lotion and hand cream, my husband tells me that I smell wonderful.

After reading about some of the health benefits of Virgin Coconut oil , I wanted to try some.This stuff has a mild coconut flavor,but it is OIL ,and does not taste like whipped cream...but it has a flavor you get used to.I add a tablespoon to oatmeal,grits,even scrambled eggs every day. The benefits for me were lower and more regulated blood sugar,better digestion and much less between meal hunger,better skin condition and the loss of 25 pounds( with no additional exercise)in about 5 weeks time. Diabetes has already taken part of my foot.Don't wait too late before learning to eat HEALTHY.I included JARROW EXTRA VIRGIN COCONUT OIL in my diet,but for 2 weeks noticed NO major changes ....then ,one morning,I just noticed how much BETTER I FELT.You can too.This oil is SOLID at room tempeture, but becomes hard as a ROCK when chilled. If you are useing it with every meal,you don't really have to chill the oil for freshness...it will not go rancid for a long time and you will be able to get some out with a spoon as needed.

At one time coconut oil received negative press in the US because of its high level of saturated fat. However, modern research has shown that not all saturated fats are alike and that the fatty acids in coconut oil, the medium chain triglycerides, do not raise serum cholesterol or contribute to heart disease, but are in fact very healthy. Also, some negative studies done on coconut oil in the past was done on hydrogenated coconut oil, which has been altered from its original form. Other studies have clearly shown that traditional Asian cultures that eat significant amounts of coconut in their diet do not suffer from modern diseases seen in western cultures that promote a low-fat diet.

"Approximately 50% of the fatty acids in coconut fat are lauric acid. Lauric acid is a medium chain fatty acid, which has the additional beneficial function of being formed into monolaurin in the human or animal body. Monolaurin is the anti-viral, antibacterial, and antiprotozoal monoglyceride used by the human or animal to destroy lipid coated viruses such as HIV, herpes, cytomegalovirus, influenza, various pathogenic bacteria including listeria monocytogenes and heliobacter pylori, and protozoa such as giardia lamblia. Some studies have also shown some antimicrobial effects of the free lauric acid."

As a "functional food," coconut oil is now being recognized by the medical community as a powerful tool against immune diseases.
And this is the best coconut oil I ever had by the way.
