Aloha is Hawaiian for “hello” or
“welcome.” Nu, pronounced “new”, although spelled in
different ways, is an Asian-Pacific word
for “coconut.” Our name Aloha Nu TM literally means “welcome
coconut.” When you taste our Extra
Virgin Coconut Oil your taste buds will perk up and exclaim “welcome coconut!”
Aloha Nu TM Extra
Virgin Coconut Oil has a delicious, delicate coconut aroma
and flavor. It’s so good you can eat it by the spoon.
It’s almost like eating fresh
coconut cream, but without the sugar. Aloha Nu TM Extra Virgin Coconut Oil is a premium
quality oil. This is evidenced by its appearance, aroma, and
How do you tell a premium
quality coconut oil from the rest? The highest quality
coconut oils are a pure white when solid (below 76 degrees
F) and crystal clear when liquid (above 76 degrees F). This
is what you get with Aloha Nu TM
Extra Virgin Coconut Oil.
Lower-quality oils are made from
sun-dried coconut (copra) that is often contaminated with
mold and bacteria. This type of oil may be slightly yellow
or gray. The discoloration is caused by residual
contaminants in the oil.
All virgin coconut oils are
made from fresh coconuts, never from copra. Most virgin oils
are cold pressed but in further processing require added
heat to remove residual moisture. If the moisture is
not removed the oil will have a very limited shelf life
(less than 3-6 months).
This heating process gives the
oil a roasted or smoky flavor you notice with many brands
and which many people find disagreeable. Although some
people will claim that their oil is “cold pressed” or even
raw, you can tell if heat has been used in processing by the
Extra Virgin Coconut Oil is truly 100% raw. The word “Extra”
is used to signify that the oil is completely raw. No heat
has been used in any stage of processing.
Aloha Nu TM
Extra Virgin Coconut Oil is not made from dried coconut but
from fresh, rich coconut cream. Coconut oil is separated
from the cream using a centrifuge with no added heat. The
highest temperature the oil sees is 104 degrees F. This is
well below the heat living and growing coconuts experience
on the trees in the hot tropical sun. Consequently, all the
nutrients, such as vitamin E, remain in the oil. This is a
living oil full of nutrition, the way nature made it. This
is why our oil retains a delicate coconut aroma and flavor,
without the roasted taste.
Not all virgin coconut oils
are of the same quality. How do you tell them apart? As the
old saying goes: the proof is in the pudding. Take the taste
test and see for yourself. You will agree that Aloha Nu TM
Extra Virgin Coconut Oil is the highest quality, best
tasting coconut oil on the market.
