What's Extra Virgin mean, anyway? Extra virgin indicates the highest grade oil possible. This grade indicates first-rate flavor, low acidity levels (that's why extra-virgin oil has impeccable taste!) and low UV absorption levels. Heat or chemicals are not used to extract oil.

Raw Extra-Virgin Coconut Oil is one of the world's most healthy superfoods and is, by far, the most nutritional all-purpose cooking oil! It is cholesterol and trans fat-free, and is rich in medium-chain good fats. Unlike other oils, Affinity's Coconut Oil is pure white and has a pleasant tropical aroma.

Coconut Oil has been featured in Alternative Medicine Magazine, March 2005 issue.
The article by Jennifer Pirtle states: " I've always believed like millions of other Americans, that coconut oil was dietary poison thanks to its high levels of artery choking saturated fat." Then she says: "Still think of coconut oil as a "bad" fat? GET OVER IT - and find out why nutritionists are now NUTS for it!". The tide seems to be turning for the tropical oil. Indeed at least one nutritionist, Bruce Fife, author of The Coconut Oil Miracle, has gone so far as to call this erstwhile villan "the healthiest oil on earth." Not only is its saturated fat not a problem - because it has a neutral effect on blood cholesterol - but it may even help promote weight loss. In fact, there's no reason it shouldn't be a staple in our kitchens.
Coconut oil is semisolid at room temperture, coconut oil has a butter consistency that makes it great for stir-frying or baking, and it's mild enough that you won't notice a pronounced coconut taste. Coconut oil may also have a future as an anti-obesity aid; several studies have found that diets rich in MCTs slightly boost metabolism. In a dietary one-two punch, MCTs may also turn off the hunger switch, helping calorie counters push away that half-eaten plate of pasta instead of asking for a second helping .     JP. Alternative Medicine ( for the full article see the March 2005 issue.)

It is idea as high-heat cooking oil and as a tasty shortening for baking.

It can also be used as a soothing moisturizer and as luscious massage oil! (The fragrance is GREAT!)

Raw Extra-Virgin Organic Coconut Oil
Everybody is boasting about they NOW have coconut oil or coconut extract additives in their skin creams and bodywashes and the like! Obviously they have realized there is something special about coconut oil! We have 100% pure coconut oil! Keep reading to see the multiple uses of our Coconut Oil!

A Coconut Oil Myth:

Since the 1960s, coconut oil has been unfairly labeled as unhealthy. The media reported studies of how tropical coconut oils were laden with artery-clogging fats. What wasn't reported was the fact that the coconut oil used in the studies was hydrogenated not the virgin oil used for centuries as a staple food among traditional cultures.

We now know it's hydrogenation artificially adding a hydrogen molecule to oils in order to make them shelf-stable that's the problem, not coconut oil. Hydrogenated soy, corn, and canola oils loaded with dangerous trans-fats and processed with toxic hexane solvents are routinely added to packaged foods. Hydrogenation fattened corporate profits and American waistlines, and is now being linked with a number of diseases.

As the FDA will soon require food labels to declare trans fats, and as we learn about the downsides of consuming too many Omega-6 vegetable oils, coconut oil is making a comeback. We suggest 3 tablespoons of extra-virgin coconut oil a day. Be part of the fat revolution and add healthy coconut oil to your diet today.

Affinity coconut oil is completely organic & extra virgin to bring you the perfect alternative oil to replace other oils that are subjecting numerous Americans to diet related illness and obesity

It's Time For An Oil Change To Improve Our Health

The FDA will begin requiring the labeling of "trans fats" in 2006, and as a result the entire fat category is undergoing a review of its traditions and assumptions. Coconut oil is well positioned to deliver the nourishing "good fats" which play a role in our health. Outdated "corporate-speak" assumptions including "zero fat is good," "tropical fats are bad," and "lots of vegetable oils are beneficial" are being increasingly questioned by millions of Americans.

The traditional Pacific Islander diet included large quantities of coconut, and those who still follow this diet have a low incidence of heart disease or obesity. When a Western-style diet including vegetable oils replaces their traditional diets, all of the fat-related diseases common in the US begin to appear. In fact in the countries that consume the most amounts of coconut oil such as India, Sri Lanka, Thailand and the Philippines, heart disease and obesity are much lower compared to North America which consumes the most amount of vegetable oils such as soy, corn, cotton, or canola - and the least amount of coconut oil. Yet North America leads the world with heart disease, and today about a quarter of our young children are clinically obese. Is it not time for an oil change to improve our health and quality of life?

MORE About Coconut Oil

The Healthiest All-Purpose Cooking Oil
Why is it that baby formulas often include coconut oil as an ingredient? Because coconut is one of the most healthy superfoods in the world. Coconut oil is cholesterol and trans fat-free, and rich in medium-chain good fats that doctors recommend. It is a natural source of Lauric Acid, which supports healthy metabolism and is being researched for its many health-protecting properties.

Coconut oil is ideal as a high-heating cooking oil and a healthy substitute for shortening in baking.We suggest you use coconut and palm oils for cooking, and olive oil (a heat-sensitive oil with a low smoke point), hemp, and flax oils for cold dressings and sauces. This will help increase your levels of healthy Lauric Acid, Omega-3, and GLA fatty acids, while lowering your intake of Omega-6 and junk oils. While we need to consume a 4:1 ratio of Omega-6s to Omega-3s, the average American diet provides a ratio of 30:1 or more!
