I found out about Nutiva at Tree Of Life ( Gabriel Cousens, Patagonia Az). Raw food people really get into the source of a product, as they want 100% pure, no Genetically-Modified-Organisms and all the good stuff you can possibly imagine. They use Nutiva as their main oil for everything. It tastes heavenly !
I wrote to Mercola for Tropical Traditions, I have yet to find the source of Garden of Life coconut oil ( both amazing and informative companies). Out of 3 emails I sent, only John Roulac, founder of Nutiva and author of many books responded to me personally...
Our coconut oil is raw and not fermented and we seperate out the oil
from the protein and fiber within 2 hours. these other brands ferment
and heat them and take about 10 hours + to press the oil from chopping.
also GOL is not certified organic.
I suggest you try our taste-people love our flavor and many customers
who have used these brands tell us it is the best they have ever tried.
Call 800-232-1162 and order some today.
