Good news for coconut aficionados: Vita Coco, a brand known for making fresh, high-quality, and never-from-concentrate coconut water popular in the United States, is adding a new product to their line — coconut oil.
Coconut oil, touted for its many health benefits — it’s good for your hair and skin, it is believed to boost brain function, and it may help you burn more fat (to name a few) — is a key ingredient in a number of beauty treatments, can be taken as a dietary supplement, and is easy to cook with. Coconut oil is a delicious alterative to unhealthy oils; you can use it to add a subtle coconut flavor to your baked goods, sautéed foods, and stir-fry dishes.
Vita Coco’s coconut oil, which is USDA organic-certified, 100 percent raw, and cold-pressed for optimal flavor, aroma, and nutrition, will be available this month in 18-ounce PET jars on Amazon.com for $13.95. It will also be available in 14-ounce glass jars in the cooking oil and beauty sections of national natural specialty retailers.
