what's so good about coconut oil?
For your health

- Assists with management of Type 2 Diabetes and Cholesterol.
- No trans fats.
- Plant derived raw super food.
The scientifically proven way to suppress your appetite and help your body metabolise and use fats faster. According to Niugini Organics, studies show that by substituting your normal cooking oil for coconut oil, you can lose 36 pounds without making any other changes.
For your skin
The secret of naturally soft and youthful looking skin that the people of Tahiti, Hawaii and the South Sea Islands have known for centuries. Coconut oil has the closest structure to your own natural skin oil and contains powerful anti oxidants which control harmful free radicals that destroy skin cells.
Unlike conventional vegetable oils and olive oil, coconut oil can be heated to 170 degrees Celsius without turning itself into cholesterol promoting, trans-fatty-acid or transfat. Bake, grill and even fry without the health risks.
About the community
Always look for a product that passes on a premium to the local farmers. If you choose to buy Niugini Organics products you will be directly assisting the indigenous farmers to better their lives.
The small island of New Britain, off the coast of PNG, is especially favored for coconut production because it is extremely volcanic and volcanic ash particles, rich in natural minerals, constantly fall on the coastal soils and nourishes the coconut palms – nature's super food. Niugini Organics is a fair trading organisation, with a policy to reinvest the sales revenue of Niugini Organic produce back into the Napapar region and support farmers by expanding their industry and increase their quality of life.
Packaged on site
Of all the brands of Virgin Coconut Oil (VCO) available in Australia, Niugini Organics VCO has traveled less food miles than any other - PNG is Australia's nearest neighbor!
Niugini Organics is gaining recognition as the only supplier of organic VCO in Australia that has not been obtained in bulk from a developing nation then shipped to a western country only to be repackaged and branded for retail. Jarred, labelled and boxed ready for retail shelves by the people from the community of growers who grow the coconuts from which the oil comes from thus providing additional employment and direct flow on benefits.
How do you tell a premium quality coconut oil from the rest?
Coconut oil naturally changes state from liquid oil to solid mass depending on its temperature. The purity/quality of any coconut oil can be judged by a simple visual test. Coconut oil, in its liquid state should be crystal clear and should be pure white in its solid form. If a liquid oil is preferred for a specific use (e.g. blending in a smoothie or salad dressing), simply heat in a bowl within a bowl of hot tap water - it will melt quickly.
