Tropical Traditions {giveaway}


THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED
THE WINNER WILL BE ANNOUNCED HERE SHORTLY
THANK YOU TO ALL WHO PARTICIPATED



Thank you to Tropical Traditions for sending me a jar of their Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil for my review.

...but, I must admit when it arrived I looked at the jar and thought... what in the world do I do with this?







On my quest to find out what exactly I had just received I visited the Tropical Traditions website, where I encourage you to visit , there is a wealth of information there!

What is Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil?
This is truly an unrefined coconut oil. The coconut oil is made in the rural mountains of Philippines. Only the highest quality coconuts are hand-picked from each harvest. All coconuts are used fresh, within 24-48 hours of harvest. The volcanic soils makes these organic coconuts some of the most nutritionally rich coconuts in the world.

The fresh coconut meat is shredded and then cold-pressed using the water from inside the coconuts to make coconut milk. The milk is allowed to sit for about half a day, while the oil naturally separates from the heavier water. The oil is then filtered from the curds. No chemical or high-heat treatment is used, and this oil contains not trans fatty acids.

This oil is not mass produced. It is made by families who are coconut farmers, using old-fashioned traditional methods that have been used in the Philippines for hundreds of years. The coconut tress and family producers are certified organic.

This high grade Virgin Coconut Oil has a long shelf life due to high antioxidant properties.


My Review

So, now I understood that my jar of Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil is a wonderfully organic food choice. Reading further, I found I can use Coconut Oil in my cooking and baking as a substitution for traditional vegetable oil and butter.

One of my first experiments was replacing the butter which I normally melt in the bottom of my frying pan when making one of my favourite meals - chicken parm. And, I didn't miss the butter one bit, if anything I thought using the coconut oil gave the dish a nicer taste.

Looking for recipes to use coconut oil is simple when following the link at Tropical Traditions. There I found a multitude of recipes, including one of my new favourites - Chocolate Bark. Take a look for yourself, there are so many recipe options.

A feature I found exciting at Tropical Traditions is the referral program. If you refer a friend and they make a purchase (first purchase only) and they list you as their referring friend, then you will earn one free product - and each month the product is different! What a great way to earn and try out some new healthy products from Tropical Traditions. In addition, every new customer making their first purchase is going to receive a book at no charge. In this book you will find testimonials and recipes. {So, if anyone is thinking of making a purchase - please shoot me an email to get my ID number, so I can be your referring friend:)}

Tropical Traditions has so many great products that I am looking forward to trying. You are going to find a wide range of organic food, skin-care products and household cleaning agents(just to name a few).

Take a look at Tropical Traditions and you are going to be impressed with the wide range of products available. This is very much a one-stop-shopping destination.

I'd love to try their shredded coconut. I love coconut, but can only get sweetened baker's coconut in our supermarket. And I've heard about the importance of unsulphered coconut. Thank you so much for this giveaway!

I'd like to experiment with using Tropical Traditions Coconut Flour to bake macaroons. Organic, gluten free, and unleavened.

Hope to win this, as I've never cooked with coconut oil before.
