Natural Grocers announced the addition of Organic Extra Virgin Unrefined Coconut Oil to its line of Natural Grocers products, the company’s house brand. The coconut oil is part of the company’s commitment to quality at an affordable price. Available in three sizes, the product joins the product line, which was established in 2016, which includes over 800 products.
“This product is a high-grade, unrefined premium nutritional edible oil obtained from the first cold pressing of organic coconut kernels. This keeps the contents in optimal condition,” explained Laura Perkins, Vice President at Natural Grocers. “We are proud to put this product on our shelves, knowing it represents our commitment to quality, while also sourced from a Sri Lankan manufacturer committed to its local community.”
“Coconut oil is the perfect fat for sauteing meats and vegetables, and it makes baked goods delectable. Loaded with medium-chain fatty acids which have been shown to support brain and immune system function along with high levels of free-radical scavengers, there’s good reason this fat has become a prized cooking oil,” explained Karen Falbo, Director of Nutrition Education and Natural Foods Chef at Natural Grocers.
The coconut oil is sourced from Sri Lanka, cultivated by the same organic farmers and processing facilities as their Organic Coconut Aminos.
The coconut oil becomes part of the grocery lineup along with other staple grocery items like organic bread, organic canned beans, organic frozen fruit and 100% grass-fed cheese.
