In case you weren’t aware of how wonderful Coconut Oil can be, I am going to tell you. You can use it in place of oils for cooking and it is a much better source of fat for you. You can use it instead of other oils for oil pulling, and make your teeth and gums very happy and healthy. It is good for your skin, especially in winter. And you can bake with it too! So today, courtesy of our colleagues at Alpha Health, we have a recipe for you to enjoy, and when you see how Alpha is organic and fair trade, you just may be on your way to a natural health food store or specialty pharmacy to get some!
You’ve seen the seal on the jar: Only DME™ is 90 Minutes Fresh. But what exactly does that mean? We’ve shed some light with an infographic that shows the difference between Alpha’s DME™ Virgin Coconut Oil versus the typical factory made coconut oil. The biggest difference is the degradation zone, the time between husking the nut and pressing. Factory pressed oil has a zone of about two weeks, including storage at the plantation, time on truck, and storage at the factory. Alpha’s DME™? 90 minutes. That’s the hand pressed difference.
