Cooking Kokonati organic white coconut oil is most suited for heated applications as it is already tempered for high heat by multiple expeller presses. Not raw like the virgin coconut oil it remains safe to use inside and out. While organic virgin coconut oil is suitable for both raw and heated applications, the white coconut oil is more economical to produce than the virgin cold-pressed oil as heat press processes yield more oil in production than the cold press processes and this reduces our cost of production.
Uses For cooking, frying, baking, barbequing and soap making. Great for making exfoliating scrub with fine coffee grounds or soft sugar. Use in place of other oils for everyday cooking.
Flavor Heat-expeller pressed from certified organic dried coconut kernels, this white cooking coconut oil has a toasty coconut aroma and the nutty taste of toasted coconut.
Ingredient 100% coconut oil extracted from dried coconut kernel. No preservatives. No stabilizers. No additives.
Storage Keep airtight in the pantry, away from sunlight and damp. Use a dry spoon to scoop out. With a best before of two years from the manufacture date, coconut oil remains safe to use for even longer periods as long as it is stored with minimal exposure to light, air and moisture. This is why Kokonati oil is packed at the origin, in the very plantations the coconuts are harvested from.
Our promise There is nothing else. No hydrogenation. No refining. No trans fats. This product supports the traditional livelihoods of villagers in the rural coconut triangle of Sri Lanka. 100% zero-waste, all bi-products and waste material in our coconut oil production are utilized in the manufacture of other nature-friendly products. The coconut meal leftover from making white cooking coconut oil is used as animal feed (a.k.a.poonak). Our white cooking coconut oil is internationally accredited by Control Union; Certified Organic (EU and USDA NOP), ISO and/or HACCP certified.
Benefits A coconut has more naturally occurring minerals and phytonutrients than any other seed or nut used for extracting oil. This is simply the reason why coconut oil has many advantages over other oil sources. Beyond its nutritional benefits, coconut oil also has healing properties that support health and general well-being.

100+ years of coconut expertise Our Coconut Oil is made by a third-generation coconut miller an engineer by profession who has fine-tuned the process of extracting the best quality coconut oils backed by generations of coconut expertise. Modernised and certified with ISO and Organic certifications, the mill plays a vital role in the welfare and wellbeing of the village community. The children of our workforce are provided with school books and stationery for the entire school year! The mill also operates a not-for-profit brick and tile factory and a metal workshop that provides work for the villagers, building material for the community and keeps the factory equipment ship-shape! Staff quarters are also provided for those who travel far from home. What’s more, we even grow our own organic vegetables onsite so the factory kitchen can provide a wholesome healthy lunch buffet for all at work.
Price for quality Our oils are not mass-produced in vast industrial-sized factories. So we do not enjoy the economies of scale that supermarket brands do. But specifically batch-crafted for New Zealand, Kokonati products are made with multigenerational expertise and knowledge to be the best quality they can be and so easily justify the premium price for the premium quality you are getting.
Loyalty Just as we are fiercely loyal to the mills and families we work with, we also want to reward you, our customer loyalty.
