Source

Amanprana coconut oil  supports the work of Dr Dan Etherington, a former professor of the Australian National University in Canberra. He studied the agricultural opportunities of the Solomon Islands and as consultant for the World Bank and the FAO (Food and Agriculture Organisation)was tasked with advising how the quality of life of island citizens could be improved. He found a way to drastically boost the living quality of the people on these forgotten islands by producing coconut oil without using electricity. A coconut press was developed and these were placed in large numbers with local farming families. The locally grown, organic coconuts are harvested from the trees surrounding the villages and one hour after cutting them open, they are pressed by hand. They are filtered three times and the result is the world’s freshest, most delicious organic extra virgin coconut oil. This has changed the lives of thousands of villagers and the project has been the five-time recipient of  Fair Trade awards.

Amount and dose

Use 1-4 tablespoons (5 to 20 grams) coconut oil per day. One jar coconut oil contains 325 grams, so you could use it for 65 days, depending on how much you use per day.
