Essence of Eden’s Virgin Coconut Oil
Finding good quality virgin coconut oil is a hard task these days, with so many to choose from whether at the supermarket or health food stores. So what does Essence of Eden do different to other suppliers?
We are extremely careful about those that we endorse because we too have had to search for the best.
Our top grade coconut oil is centrifuged coconut oil. It tastes like cream, with a smooth texture and light fresh coconut aroma. Because this method gives a far lower yield per harvest (but higher quality) centrifuged virgin coconut oil is a rare find and therefore more expensive.
We also stock a more affordable yet still high quality cold pressed coconut oil.
What are the Differences Between Centrifuged Coconut Oil and Cold Pressed?
The main differences between centrifuged coconut oil and cold pressed are the flavour, aroma and texture. Cold pressed coconut oil also contains less of the healthy saturated fats that coconut oil is known for. Cold pressed coconut oil typically contains 42-50% lauric acid, whereas centrifuged oils contain between 50-54%.
Our Products are Certified
We offer an oil certified by the Soil Association and the Vegetarian Society. We choose these because both bodies have stringent controls in place to ensure quality of supply, something we at Essence of Eden firmly believe in. These controls ensure that the machines, the farms, the process, the exporter and importer are all inspected and monitored. So what you are getting really is organic.
Essence of Eden are also part of the Food for Life Catering Scheme.
Fair Trade is something that we are frequently asked about. We have spoken to our farmers and by mutual agreement have decided not to subscribe to Fair Trade. This is subject to regular review and may be something we take up in the future. In the meantime, we can assure you that we do believe strongly in fair trade, which is something we can implement ourselves by dealing directly with our farmers.
