Coconut Oil

Matakana Superfoods

  • We love coconut oil. Especially when it's raw, cold-pressed, certified organic, extra virgin, fair trade, free from chemical processing and GMOs, made from non-hybrid coconut palms, and with no added preservatives or artificial flavours.

    Matakana SuperFood's Raw Extra Virgin and Virgin Coconut Oil is super high in Lauric Acid, a substance which can only be found naturally in breast milk. Studies show that lauric acid strengthens the immune system, fights against viruses and bacteria, lowers cholesterol and assists in maintaining a healthy weight.

  • Let us count the ways! Unlike other plant oils, coconut oil has a high smoke point so doesn't break down and go rancid at high temperatures.

    Use daily for cooking/frying, as a butter alternative (pop in fridge - glorious on toast/scones), in raw desserts, baking, as a body oil/moisturiser (super hydrating), hair conditioning treatment (leave in overnight), makeup remover (oil cleans oil), shaving oil, or even as a personal lubricant...

  • "Coconut oil is my absolute favourite! I use it for so many things - cooking, stirfries, roasting, and have just recently started trying some of your raw dessert recipes - yum! Has completely replaced butter in our house."

    - Emily Parker (Tauranga, New Zealand)

    "Love to use this coconut oil in my cooking and also as a body moisturiser. I love the flavour, and have found after moisturising with it for a couple of weeks, my skin is noticeably smoother and red patches have gone."

    - Sarah Elliot (Auckland, New Zealand)
  • Matakana SuperfoodsMatakana SuperFoods is a New Zealand-based leader in the research and marketing of new and novel foods with unique qualities and super nutrients to support health and well-being. Their goal is to bring to the market the latest high-quality, super-nutrient functional foods, snack foods and cosmetics.

    While extracts of various foods have been used in supplements for many years, a new movement away from supplements and towards whole Superfoods has arisen, and promises to offer greater benefits to health through the premise that the synergistic interaction of the nutrients gained from natural wholefoods has more to offer than one or two components being extracted and put into a tablet. Often the balance, ratio and type of nutrients found in wholefoods leads to superior assimilation and absorption by the body. There is a renewed belief that eating wholefoods (and particularly wholefoods with super-nutrient qualities) is of greater benefit than simple supplementation with individual extracts.
