Virgin Oil de Coco-Crème® is an excellent cooking oil. It has a very high smoke point and is excellent for deep frying. When used for deep frying it creates a crispy outside texture, but succulent inside. Since it is a clean-stable oil, it can be re-used more than once.
Virgin Oil de Coco-Crème is an optimum choice for baking. It gives a soft texture to cookies or a silky smooth feel texture in cakes. Virgin Oil de Coco-Crème is also excellent in grill and barbeque preparation. Virgin Oil de Coco-Crème® can be used as a baste or as a coating for raw food before grilling. It will give a firm texture and lock in the natural flavor of the food.
The easiest way to get the benefit of Virgin Oil de Coco-Crème® is to use approximately 3tsp a day either as a spread, in your yogurt, in soup or even on its own!

Virgin Oil de Coco-Crème® is the world’s first virgin coconut oil pure enough to be used in sensitive applications without the need for refining. Unlike generic virgin coconut oil, virgin oil de coco-crème® has no limitation; it is a versatile and useful component for food formulation or stand alone use.
|A natural and functional emulsifier||In formulation it yields a smoother, creamier texture in finished products. It may be used to benefit chocolates, smoothies, ice creams|
|Miscible with other oils||Easily blended with other oils to enhance flavor, stability or enhance the nutritional function of oils. Affords the opportunity to create new, appetizing food formulations.|
|Good creaming quality for shortening purposes||May be used in pastries and baked goods to facilitate light, flaky textures and a natural fat source for making ice cream.|
|High smoke point 177ºC/350ºF||Useful for sautéing, frying and deep frying|
|Highly stable||More resistant to trans fat formation than virtually all other oils.|
|High luster and high stability as a spray oil and as a coating oil||Prevents rancidity and gives clean and glossy appearance when used as a spray for crackers and cookies.|
|Narrow melting range point||Excellent mouth-feel effect; when used as a coating for ice cream bars, it remains hard during storage but melts quickly and completely in the mouth when eaten.|
|Very high digestibility||This is attributed to its short fatty acid chain and therefore significant to use as direct food oil, in cooking and food preparation and even in food formulation.|
|Pure-Raw Oil||Ideal for raw food preparation which needs a source of raw fat but with high stability, purity, and pleasant flavour profile.|
Functions: Virgin Oil de Coco-Crème® can be used directly as body oil. In formulation, it is an excellent solvent, carrier, and fixed oil or base oil. It imparts emolliency and moisturization qualities in products, and conveys healing properties making it “Cosmeceutical”.
Coconut oil has always been a valuable ingredient in many applications, such as: delicate formulations, clinical nutrition, topical preparations, tablet lubricants, suppositories and other products. Coconut oil’s wide use is mostly due to its’ high stability, unique melting point, the fact that it is an energy source and a source of medium chain fatty acids, which are invaluable to most formulations. These applications used to require highly refined or hydrogenated forms of coconut oil, since they needed high purity for accuracy and quantification of results.
Quality First International Inc. was able to match the efficacy of highly refined coconut oils without sacrificing the natural state of coconut oil and without the drawbacks of the village type coconut oil. Using our unique Cold Centrifuge Series™ technology, we deliver a natural coconut oil, while maintaining the purity in its quantitative level.
Coconut Nutri-Oil™ in particular has unique characteristics of optimum distribution of medium chain fatty acids. It has an even distribution of capric, caprylic, and lauric fatty acids.
Coco de Crème™ retains the original state of coconut oil for MCFA distribution. This Oil has replaced highly refined coconut oil and exotic natural oils in many neutraceutical applications. It has lauric acid in its natural state and purity at the cellular level.
MCT-coconut base is concentrated in C8 (capric) and C10 (caprylic) fatty acids for specific/targeted usage.
QFI’s Coco de Crème™, Coconut Nutri-Oil™ and MCT-coconut base are trigylcerides of medium chain fatty acids that offer unique metabolic properties and high nutritional potentials for formulators and manufacturers of medicinal nutritional products. Triglycerides of medium chain fatty acids (MCFA) are transported directly via portal circulation system; whereas longer chain fatty acids are absorbed via the lymphatic system following micellar transport to the intestinal wall. Therefore, triglycerides of MCFA reach the liver more rapidly, where they are completely oxidized. MCT’s are a readily available source of dietary calories which do not contribute to the production of depot fat.
Quality First International’s Coco de Crème™ and Coconut Nutri-Oil™ can be used for nutritional preparation or what is called “medical foods.” They can be used to control nutritional disorders such as mal absorption and mal digestion syndrome. These oils provide ready energy for supporting metabolic defenses, which are necessary for healing and recovery. It is worth exploring the application of these oils in the following formulations:
Coco de Crème™, Coconut Nutri-Oil™ and MCT-coconut base can be used as viscosity modifiers in manufacturing: topical aerosols, foams, creams, ointments and lotions. They can also function as solvents for organic compounds and carriers for a wide variety of medicaments. Studies indicate that medium chain esters like MCT-coconut base do not cause soreness and inflammation to the skin and eye membranes. QFI’s MCFA oil group (Coco de Crème™, Coconut Nutri-Oil™, MCT-coconut base), are manufactured free from chemical contaminants, this eliminates the potential for irritation.
Our oils can also function to provide miscibility with other naturally occurring oils. As natural forms of MCFA, they can also function as carriers of medicinal substances to the lower skin strata. These oils can exhibit bacteriostatic effect. MCFA base lipids as monodiglyceride medium chain esters are particularly recommended for the dissolution of difficult compounds, such as sterols. Naturally occurring MCFA Coco de Crème™ and Coconut Nutri-Oil™ are excellent for dissolution of difficult compounds. Simply, because they have natural MCFA (medium chain fatty acids) in higher concentration than regular coconut oil, so they exhibit improved flow and solvent properties. They have the stability that generic natural/virgin coconut oils do not have.
Due to the properties discussed above, Coco de Crème™, Coconut Nutri-Oil™ and MCT-coconut base should be used for the following formulations:
