If there’s one ingredient that I want to always be present in every food I eat, I want it to be pure raw virgin coconut oil or VCO. This natural oil is considered to be one of the healthiest oils on the planet. And considering that our tropical country, the Philippines, is abundant of organically grown coconut trees, there’s no reason for me to miss the opportunity of digging into its full health and nutritional benefits.
Virgin coconut oil manufacturers in the Philippines are exporting the largest market share of VCO to the world. Hence, whether you’re in US, Canada, Singapore, Japan or United Kingdom, you can expect to see this amazing product in the grocery shelves.
