Tropical Traditions Virgin Coconut Oil Review

A few weeks ago I received this 32 oz jar of Tropical Tradition's Virgin Coconut Oil to review.  I was first introduced to this company through another blog that gives healthy recipe ideas (Heavenly Homemakers).  I noticed that Laura used several recipes with coconut oil in it.  I was really anxious to try it after I looked at the Tropical Traditions website.  I had never heard of coconut oil being used in cooking before.

After I watched this video I learned that Brian and his wife first made this coconut oil  by hand in the Phillipines.  In the last 7 years, Tropical Traditions still makes the oil by hand.  Only the best coconuts are picked and each jar that is produced is USDA certified organic.  Brian and his wife were the first to bring their coconut oil to America and it is the number one best selling brand today.  The antioxidant levels in the Tropical Traditions Virgin Coconut Oil is twice as high than in other brands.  It is the best cooking oil and is healthy for the body as it supports the immune system.

I really enjoyed using this coconut oil in my recent cooking experiences.  I thought it was easy to scoop out of the jar, melt in the microwave and pour into my recipes.  I have replaced some other oils and butter with the coconut oil because I know it is healthier.  I made a yummy Almond Joy Coconut bread (recipe to come) and Heavenly Homemakers granola bars to test out this coconut oil.  It was perfect.
