La Tourangelle 100% Organic, Virgin and Unrefined coconut oil is fresh and delicious. It is made from organic coconuts which are expeller-pressed (hexane free) within 4 days of being harvested by hand. This raw, lightly filtered oil is pure, organic and has an incredible coconut flavor. Use it in stir fries, curries and baking, or as a replacement for butter. It also great for use on skin and hair to heal, protect and beautify. It contains great dietary nutrients such as MCT's (medium chain triglycerids), lauric acid and no transfat. The melting point of coconut oil is generally quoted as being 76_F (24_C). If the temperature is above 76_F, the oil will be liquid. If the temperature is below 76 _F, it will become solid. This occurrence in no way affects the oil. La Tourangelle is one of few remaining oil mills keeping a time-honored French heritage of roasting and pressing nut kernels into delicious oils. We are a family-owned company whose mastery of oil production is the fruit of passion, integrity, and pride.
