I not only love Tropical Traditions for their Soy-free eggs, but also for their Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil. Tropical Traditions was kind enough to send me a sample of the product and I have to say I’m wicked impressed. (I was in no way under any obligation to review it at all if I chose, or to write a positive review. Besides receiving the product sample, I have not been compensated for my opinion in any way). I’ve cycled through a few different brands of Coconut oil looking for the perfect consistency, taste, and potential health benefits. Quality really makes all the difference. Tropical Traditions has the highest quality product I’ve seen so far. It has a smooth, natural taste and is in my opinion, the purest oil I’ve used.
I’ve used this topically, in cooking, in smoothies, and I’ve even eaten it straight by the spoonful. I take 2 tablespoons a day, as I feel it supports my overall health. I really feel it has helped my body heal better from damages due to food allergies. My skin glows much more now than before I started using it daily.
The marketing department at Tropical Traditions was super speedy about answering my inquiries regarding any possible cross contamination with food allergens in the production process. I was assured that the Coconut oil is produced on equipment that only ever handles coconut. This is thoroughly awesome for myself and all other food allergic folks! (Unless you’re allergic to coconut of course). Purchase Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil here.

In my opinion, Coconut oil is the best oil to cook with since it has a high smoking point and doesn’t break down as easily as other common cooking oils such as grape-seed oil, olive oil, and canola oil. I use this coconut oil in everyday dishes in place of my formerly beloved olive oil. A few dishes I love it on are my peppered breakfast bake and my creamy brown rice pasta with coconut white wine sauce.
