Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is an organic staple in Southeast Asian and West African cooking. A creamy oil extracted from the flesh of mature coconuts by cold pressing, virgin coconut oil adds richness to curries and stir-fries and is a fantastic vegan baking ingredient.

What can I do with organic coconut oil?

Coconut oil has a subtle coconut fragrance and not only used in cooking. It is popular as an organic moisturiser, make-up remover or organic massage oil.

How to use organic coconut oil

Coconut oil is solid at room temperature but turns to liquid on heating.

When hardened in the fridge, you can make a fragrant vegan buttercream – simply substitute dairy butter for solid coconut oil and whisk with sifted icing sugar to top cakes.

Types of Coconut Oil for Cooking

Not all organic coconut oils are created equal. From refined to unrefined, below are the types that you might consider to best suit your culinary needs.

  • Refined Coconut OilKnown for its neutral flavour and higher smoke point, making it versatile for various cooking methods like sautéing and frying.
  • Virgin Coconut OilCold-pressed to retain its natural coconut flavour and aroma, ideal for enhancing the taste of curries, stir-fries, and vegan baked goods.
  • Extra Virgin Coconut OilSimilar to virgin coconut oil, extra virgin coconut oil is cold-pressed and retains a distinct coconut taste. It's a premium choice for cooking and baking.
  • Organic Coconut OilProduced without synthetic pesticides or fertilisers, offering a clean and pure coconut flavour. Suitable for those prioritising organic products.
