Ceres Organics Coconut Oil is freshly obtained from organically grown adult coconuts. The pale flesh is cold-pressed to extract the oil, then deodorized and purified using the smart technology of steam, pressure and mechanical filtering. No solvents or petrochemicals are incorporated in the process and the oil is heated below 180°C. Since coconut oil is very heat-stable, it is suited to an array of cooking methods at high temperatures like deep frying and high-heat baking. Coconut oil is also excellent for dressings and mayonnaise or as a healthy alternative to butter.
