  • New Product: Organic Virgin Coconut Oil

    by Paula Gallagher | October 17, 2018

    Coconut oil is one of the biggest trends in the food, health and beauty industries. One of the reasons is that it is so easy to use! But when purchasing coconut oil you want to make sure that is of the highest quality. Key features of our new Pathway Coconut Oil are that it is cold-pressed, hexane free, unrefined, organic and non-GMO.

The majority of the saturated fat in coconut oil is in the form of lauric acid, which is why many consider it to be a healthier choice than other fat sources. There are studies that show that lauric acid can increase your HDL or "healthy" cholesterol" and lower your LDL or "lethal" cholesterol. It is nut-free, gluten-free, carb-free, and Paleo Diet-friendly. Read more
