5 Star Rated Goodness

Welcome to the world of virgin coconut oil, where Sri Lanka has made a name for itself by producing some of the best quality oil in the world. At Goodfolks, we are proud to offer you this premium product, sourced from Sri Lanka’s lush coconut groves, with a rich history of cultivation dating back thousands of years. Goodfolks Organic Virgin Coconut Oil is rated 5 stars by the Coconut Development Authority of Sri Lanka.

  • Goodfolks VCO is made from fresh coconuts that are harvested at the right stage of maturity to ensure optimal flavor and nutrient content.
  • We use only the white flesh of the coconut. This ensures that the oil extracted is of the highest quality. The white flesh is rich in coconut oil and has a pleasant aroma and taste.
  • Our VCO follows a Cold-pressed extraction. This involves pressing the fresh coconut meat at low temperatures, usually below 60°C (140°F). This method helps retain the oil’s natural flavor, aroma, and nutrients. It also ensures that the oil is extracted without the use of heat or chemicals, preserving its purity.
  • Goodfolks VCO is free from chemicals, additives, and preservatives. It is extracted using only mechanical methods, such as pressing or centrifugation, to maintain its natural integrity.
  • This oil is unrefined and unbleached so its retain its natural color, flavor, and aroma. (Refining processes can strip the oil of its beneficial compounds and alter its taste and smell.)
  • Goodfolks Virgin coconut oil has a relatively high smoke point, making it suitable for cooking at high temperatures without breaking down and producing harmful compounds. This characteristic is achieved through careful extraction and processing methods.
  • Goodfolks VCO has a rich coconut aroma and flavor, characteristic of fresh coconuts. This aroma and flavor profile are preserved through gentle extraction methods that do not expose the oil to excessive heat or processing.
  • And of course our oil contains various nutrients, including medium-chain fatty acids (MCFAs) like lauric acid, which have potential health benefits. To ensure that these nutrients are retained, the oil is extracted from fresh, high-quality coconut meat using gentle processing methods.
