Now you may think coconut oil is coconut oil is coconut oil. But it isn’t.
At Expo West, I saw several jars of coconut oil open, delabeled and sitting next to each other for inspection. One had no scent at all, another had a very “interesting” (not in a good way) texture, but one jar stood out as exceptional. This is our #7 Top Pick!
Kelapo is special. Hailing from Sri Lanka, this oil is cold-pressed, unrefined and organic. With oil, oxidation is a no-no. Oxidation comes primarily from heat and light, making the processing and packaging of the oil highly important. The cold-press process prevents the damage that heat can cause to the oil and their brown amber jar protects the oil and thereby extends its shelf life, especially if you need to stock up! This is the more expensive option, but I’m glad that Kelapo isn’t willing to sacrifice the quality of their oil through cheaper packaging.
I am very picky about oils and never buy any oil, whether it be olive, pistachio or avocado, in a clear jar or in plastic. But think about how often you see oil packaged in clear glass or plastic! And think about how these are usually kept by the stove, being affected by the heat of cooking and the light of the kitchen! If you’re up for another thought, how about all that plastic leaching into your “healthy” oil? I’d rather not think about it.
There’s a lot of damaged oil out there on shelves and on people’s counters. Come to think of it, almost every other coconut oil I’ve seen is packaged in clear glass or plastic. Except Kelapo.
If that isn’t enough, Kelapo is also fair-trade certified, vegetarian society certified and kosher certified. What?! Yep, that means that Kelapo cares about
Kelapo is free from animal products and is also produced in a dairy-free and nut-free facility meaning that we can all feel safe and sleep soundly.
My friends over at Kelapo want to give you an 8oz. jar (dark amber of course) of their incredible coconut oil. All you have to do is enter!
