Amanprana "Cocos", fair trade coconut oil (The slim Fat)
I love walking through organic shops and discovering new products. A while back I discovered Amanprana coconut oil and started using it for stir-frying veggies. Based on a friend's suggestion, I now use the same coconut oil after my shower. It makes my skin blissfully soft. Tip: I hold the container under the hot shower water so the oil melts and it's easier to rub on.Elise Crombez, Belgian top model and presenter, Belgium

Fair Trade Cocos oil is ideal for wokking, frying or deep-frying.On bread you can taste the coconut. But not when you deep-fry with Cocos oil; your dishes will, though, have a milder taste. Cocos oil is very low in PFAs (polyunsaturated fatty acids), which makes this kind of cooking oil the most stable at high temperatures (when heated). PFA-rich sunflower-, soybean- and groundnut oil should NOT be heated. Extra Virgin Cocos oil from Amanprana contains 0% trans fats. Heated PFAs and trans fats – just like deodorized, refined or chemically modified oil – are partially responsible for cardiovascular diseases, cancer, diabetes,… You can use Fair Trade Cocos oil, with total confidence, as a lip salve, handcream, massaging oil,... Heat food no higher than 170 to 180 °C.
100% bio* extra virgin coconut oil. Unrefined, not deodorized, unbleached and not chemically modified. 100% natural. And nothing else... Packed in glass. Glass is inert so there is no migration of components of plastics to the contents. Contains no trans fats and no genetically modified organisms (GMO). *certified organic by BLIK. Use no cooking oil other than a natural-sourced one because most of the naturally-occurring infection-controlling substances and other beneficial chemicals are stored in the fats of animals and in the oils of plants. Amanprana enhances the nutritional value of any meal.
A good dollop of heart-healthy fat, added to any dish, increases the uptake of vitamins A, D, E, and K. Essential nutrients, such as coenzyme Q10, lipoic acid and carnitine but also carotenoids from carrots, spinach, maize kernels, tomatoes, red bell peppers, etc… are much better absorbed.
Buy Amanprana and support the fair trade coconut project
Amanprana's coconut products have been fair trade and certified by Ecocert for many years. Now Amanprana has decided to draft its own fair trade Charter. Why, you may ask? Because many fair trade organizations have become elitist and unaffordable for local farmers. What started off as a humanitarian cause for them became a commercial label, in pursuit of profit. The new Amanprana fair trade coconut project gives employment to 300 families in the Philippines and Sri Lanka. The money that we previously paid to the certification body is now added to the fair trade fund payments, with five percent instead of the previous three percent of coconut purchases now going to the fund. This money is used for education, healthcare, the environment, infrastructure, and equipment for farmers, laborers and suppliers. Sellers are safe in the knowledge they will receive a guaranteed minimum price that will cover all the costs of sustainable production. We don't squeeze out families, we pay them properly. Fair trade is not a matter of charity, but a long-term ethical partnership. Cocos: Bovis 13.700, 70 Yang, GI 0
