- Why NUI virgin coconut oil is more costly than coconut oil from other countries?
NUI virgin coconut oil is produced from coconuts sourced from certified organic plantation on Fiji Island which is highly isolated and free from contamination, producing authentic coconut oil which you can tell by its taste and healing properties. NUI virgin coconut oil is processed and packed at certified organic factory. NUI promotes FAIR TRADE practices which aim to improve farmers’ welfare and standard of living.
- Aren’t all coconuts naturally organic?
No. It is argued that all coconuts are grown organically but this is a big misconception. In many places, there is cross-cultivation of cocoa trees and other crops which are planted in the same area, and are often contaminated with pesticides, herbicides and other chemicals. The independent organic certification covers the growing, harvesting and production of the oil. If the coconut is organic in its growing states but has gone through commercial oil processing method, the oils produced are no longer qualified as organic.
- If I am already taking other cold-pressed oil (flaxseed oil/ EPO/ wheatgerm oil), do I need to take coconut oil? Will it cause over dosage?
Different oils provide different healing properties to our body. According to Recommended Nutrient Intake for Malaysia, the desirable fat intake would range from minimum 20% to 35% of total energy intake per day. Generally, for a 2000kcal diet, the fat required per day is about 3 to 5 tablespoons. This should be sourced from various unrefined, unbleached and preferably cold-pressed organic oil as it does not put extra burden to our liver in fat metabolism. Fat is an essential nutrient as it provides essential fatty acids for optimum bodily function as well as absorption of fat soluble nutrients such as vitamin A, D, E and K. It is good to take a wide variety of organic cold-pressed oils and use them in your recipes for variation.
- Is NUI virgin coconut oil suitable for infant and children?
Yes. NUI virgin coconut oil is excellent for infant and children. NUI virgin coconut oil contains high lauric acid (best known as the main component of mother’s milk) that helps to build up immune system. Lauric acid is anti-viral, anti-bacteria and anti-fungal which protects infant and children from common childhood infections and illnesses. NUI virgin coconut oil is also recommended for pregnant and lactating mothers to build up immune system and to increase the lauric acid in their breast milk.
- Why NUI virgin coconut oil is colourless and clear? Has it gone through refining or bleaching processes?
Commercial coconut oil is produced from copra (dried coconut meat), which is commonly contaminated by mould, aflatoxin, flies and unpleasant odour. Due to these contaminants, the pressed oil needs to be refined, bleached and deodorised (RBD) using high heat and chemical solvents. This oil has also undergone hydrogenation process to lengthen its shelf life. Coconut oil produced by these commercial processes would have lost its healing properties. This RBD oil is usually yellowish in colour. NUI virgin coconut oil is produced using mechanical press method without high heat and solvents. Oil produced from fresh coconut milk is often colourless, and can be differentiated by its pleasant taste and fragrance. NUI virgin coconut oil has retained the original healing properties of virgin coconut oil.
NUI Virgin Coconut Oil is excellent to use in cooking. However, when the oil is cooked beyond 198°C, it will turn yellow. Once the oil has turned yellow, it should be discarded.
