VIRGIN COCONUT OIL PRODUCED IN BELIZE

Virgin Natural Coconut Oil

IN RECENT YEARS COCONUT OIL HAD BEEN IMPORTED FROM MALAYSIA, AS THE COCONUT TREES HAD BEEN DEVASTATED BY A DISEASE IN THIS AREA OF THE WORLD.
Today, we now have somebody in Stann Creek resuming selling Belizean made Coconut Oil. It is also being processed properly as a EXTRA VIRGIN ALL NATURAL COCONUT OIL. Used for cooking in many Belizean dishes. Advertising on the label says it is NO HYDROGENERATION, NO TRANS FATTY ACIDS, RICH IN MEDIUM CHAIN TRIGLYCERIDAS. This kind of oil is comparable to Virgin Olive Oil from the Mediteranean area. This coconut oil unlike corn type vegetable cooking oils, is actually good for you. Very healthy! the current price is $9 bz for 1 liter. Unfortunately this is twice the price of the previous imported Malaysian oil we had gotten used to over the past ten years. So for Belizeans it is a bit expensive. The vegetable stand lady said it is produced from Stann Creek Valley. There is another part time producer in Xaibe, in the northern Corozal District. This vegetable stand was the main one, found near the Internet Cafe in Santa Elena Town, Western Belize.
