recent years, the New Zealand Pacific Island population has been advised
to stop eating their traditional fat - coconut oil. This is due to the
mistaken belief that saturated fats cause high cholesterol and heart disease.
They actually do neither. Rather, coconut oil in particular has whole
range of health benefits, including:

Coconut sugar & nectar
We are now stocking two 100% natural, whole food, low GI (35) coconut sweeteners.
Coconut Sugar is made only of 100% pure coconut sap that is harvested every 6 hours. No anti-fermentation agents are used. Coconut sugar is processed naturally through the evaporation of coconut sap until it has become granular.
It has a delicious flavor and aroma with a creamy appearance and caramel sweetness of coconut. It is similar in appearance to other natural sweeteners like rapadura and can be used in the same way for cooking, baking, coffee, juices, cakes, pastries, confectionery, sweetener for sauces.
The Nectar is a syrup that is not as evaporated, so has a similar flavour but not quite as intense. This could be used in recipes that normally use honey, maple syrup or agave.
Ingredients: 100% sap from the flower of the coconut tree
of the oil may have seperated out in transit from Sri Lanka.
To mix back in, place the jar in warm water till the contents have
softened. Then mix togther with a knife, or zizz up in a food processor.

We now have a range of 3 different coconut oils
- Zenian from Thailand
- Zenian from Sri Lanka
- Green Pastures from the Philippines
See the chart below for the differences between them.
We also have a new infused coconut oil which also contains cod liver oil, skate liver oil and butter oil which can be ordered from the cod liver page
you are using these oils for therapeutic purposes, they may be more
potent than the oil you're currently using. Some people take up
to 1 Tbs coconut oil in warm water before meals to increase their
metabolism and decrease their appetite. With these oils, we suggest
you start with 1/2 tsp before breakfast and gradually build up to
a larger dose. We also suggest you only take it before breakfast
and possibly lunch.
should also take care not to take too much coconut oil if you think
you may have adrenal fatigue. For some people with tired adrenals,
it may be too stimulating to take too much or to take it in water
on an empty stomach.
|Zenian Sri Lanka
|General purpose, smooth. We like this for eating off the spoon, making snack bars & oil pulling.
|General purpose, mild flavour. We like this one for cooking or skin care, but also suitable for eating off the spoon, snack bars and oil pulling.
|Zenian Thailand Fermented
|The flavour isn't as mild, and you can taste that it's fermented. But once it's in a smoothie or a snack bar, you wouldn't notice the difference. This is a good choice if you don't do well on other coconut oils. It seems to be easier on the adrenals. It also helps you absorb the nutrients in your fermented cod liver oil, if you can't take butter oil.
|Green Pastures Philippine
|Therapeutic quality. Only need a small amount for increasing metabolism. Raw. Delicious, smooth taste. Very effective for anti-fungal topical application.

Zenian Coconut oil (Thailand) Fermented
This extra virgin raw fermented coconut oil is extracted by cold press and centrifuge, from fresh coconuts, harvested close to the factory, (not dried). No chemicals are used, the product is certified organic, and has not been deodorised. It is the best tasting fermented coconut oil we have tried.
It is processed from mature coconuts that are grated and pressed to expel the coconut milk. The coconut milk is stored in a dry and clean room with controlled ambient low temperature over 24 hours of fermentation where the oil is slowly separated naturally with no use of chemicals, bacteria, or additives of enzymes.
It’s warmed slightly to no more than 45'C to remove residual moisture and ensure long shelf life – approximately 2 years.
Raw Fermented coconut oil is more easily digested by people who have difficulty with regularly processed cold pressed coconut oil, and is easier on the adrenals than standard coconut oil. It helps you absorb the nutrients in your fermented cod liver oil (if you can't take butter oil), and it very helpful in reducing Candida.
