BIO PLANÈTE has a long tradition of using Virgin Coconut Oil for a variety of purposes: As one of the first manufacturers, we already offered high-quality Virgin Coconut Oil of Filipino origin in organic food trade in 2006. Our Virgin Coconut Oil is cold-pressed fresh from the flesh of fully ripe organic coconuts. The oil is natural and neither bleached, hardened nor deodorised. The coconuts are grown and processed according to strict organic standards.
In addition to screw-on jars of various sizes, we also offer Virgin Coconut Oil in the practical, environmentally friendly and cost-saving 2.5-litre -»Oil in Box«- variant. The advantage pack is ideal for frequent users in the private sector, as well as for gastronomy and canteen kitchens, commercial kitchens and natural cosmetics manufacturers.
Recipe ideas and use of Coconut Oil Virgin
Thanks to the wonderful aroma of fresh coconuts, it gives dishes a fine, exotic touch. It is highly heatable and is therefore ideal for frying and baking. The pure white, creamy natural product tastes heavenly in confectionery (e.g. coconut truffles), vegan spreads and is also ideal as an ingredient in pastries and cakes. Coconut Oil is also an important ingredient in natural cosmetics and is traditionally used in skin and hair care. Get some DIY suggestions here.
"Zero Waste" tip for the further use of the jars
You can easily reuse our Coconut Oil jars. Be it for preserving jam, nicely designed as a tealight or as a storage container for tea, cereals or legumes. Get more suggestions at Upcycling & Creativity.
Since we use oil-soluble glue for the labels, the best way to remove the label from the coconut jars is with oil. Simply coat the label with oil, let it soak in overnight and peel off easily in the morning.

Product of organic farming
** For this product, the raw materials may in some cases originate from other countries. This especially holds true in cases of crop shortfall, or when batches of raw goods do not meet our quality requirements. In any event, the raw material are being tested by BIO PLANÈTE and are in 100% compliance with our strict organic quality requirements. The respective origin is always noted on the product label.
Average nutritional values per 100 ml / 3.38 fl oz
On average in 100 ml: lauric acid 45 g / 1,59 oz
What does cold pressing mean?
"Cold pressing" assumes that no external heat is added. When we cold-press oils, the temperature is monitored and we ensure that no high temperatures are reached. We can therefore guarantee that the quality of the oil is not impaired.
What is MCT Oil and is Coconut Oil one of these?
Our BIO PLANÈTE Coconut Oil is a natural unrefined Coconut Oil containing approx. 10 % MCTs (caprylic, capric and capronic acids; chain length 6 to 10 carbon atoms). MCTs are metabolised differently compared to longer fatty acids and are used more effectively for energy (not as an adipose store), making them interesting for parenteral nutrition in treatment and for ketogenic diets and athletes.
Pure MCT oils are mostly fractions of the three MCT fatty acids obtained from Coconut Oil. It is hoped that the high MCT concentration will bring benefits, but there is no evidence for this. On the contrary: high amounts of isolated MCTs can lead to digestive issues (this has not been observed with coconut oil, as very much higher amounts would be needed).
Lauric acid (12 carbon atoms) is often counted as one of the MCTs. This is because, according to the classification used by chemists, they are “medium-chain fatty acids”. Biochemically speaking, however, lauric acid is metabolised very differently from the three shorter MCTs, so it cannot be said to have the same effect (and pure MCT oils do not contain lauric acid).
What does "virgin" mean in the context of oils?
A virgin oil is a cooking oil which is obtained exclusively using mechanical processes without preheating the raw materials. It is not subjected to chemical or thermal treatment or to any other refinement process and thus preserves its authentic, natural taste and the essential components of the raw material. This also makes it suitable for eating raw.
What conditions and standards are behind the organic seal on our oils?
An organic seal is a quality and test seal with which products from organic farming are marked. In 2010, a binding new organic seal was introduced throughout the EU, also known as the EU organic logo, which identifies food from organic farming (a star-shaped leaf on a green background).
This seal replaced the German state organic seal (green hexagon with "BIO" lettering), which had existed since 2001, with the same standards in terms of content. Due to the high degree of popularity of its predecessor, both seals are still often used today.
The use of this certification is strictly regulated by the publisher and is subject to ecological requirements. Compliance with the criteria by producers is ensured by a documentation obligation as well as regular sampling and examination of product samples. Compliance with the regulations is monitored in Europe by the responsible Eco-Control bodies.
Foods labelled with the organic seal must, among other things:
• Not be produced by or with/from genetically modified organisms
• Not to be produced with the use of synthetic pesticides
• Contain no more than 5% conventionally produced components (in exceptional cases, if ingredients are not available in ecological quality, in accordance with Annex VO)
• not contain sweeteners and stabilisers as well as synthetic colourants, preservatives and flavour enhancers
• not result from monotonous crop rotations (two-, three- and four-field farming)
• and much more: more information on the EU Organic Label
Can I use the oil even after the expiration date?
We can no longer guarantee the oil's perfect quality after its best before date.
In the interest of sustainability, however, we would like to point out the following: vegetable oils do not belong to the group of very sensitive foodstuffs and can usually still be consumed after the best-before date. This is especially true if the bottle is still sealed and it has been stored away from heat sources. Therefore, we recommend using your senses to test the oil before disposing of it. Oil that has been stored for too long can be easily recognized by smell and taste. If it tastes rancid or unusual (off), it should not be consumed.
How do I remove the labels from the jars and bottles?
Since we use oil-soluble glue for the labels, the best way to remove the label from the coconut jars is with oil. Simply coat the label with oil, let it absorb overnight and peel off easily in the morning. However, if the label is already off and only the glue is on it, this method doesn't work as well. In this context, we have been told of positive experiences with orange oil cleaner, such as from AlmaWin or Sodasan. Another option is a hair dryer - because heat also loosens the label well.
