I don’t know about you, but I’ve learned a huge amount about gluten and leaky gut in the past couple of years, and definitely a lot about coconut oil.
It really boggles my mind: sure we have to watch out for GMO wheat, but even hybrids have become very dangerous, being up to 100% more glutinous than wheat of former years.
I hate to say it, but gluten is a killer.
I don’t say that lightly. Being the scientific nerdy type, I really don’t like hyperbole.
But the statement above is true, when you see how many autoimmune issues (including cancer) that gluten (ie causing leaky gut) is guilty of.
This is a huge reason that all of our products are packaged in a gluten-free facility.
That being said, I don’t think many coconut oil manufacturers are guilty of mixing wheat in with their coconut oil. The sources of gluten and coconut oil are pretty different, so they really wouldn’t be on the same machines. You could say “better be safe than sorry”, but I think it’s better to be aware of the real issue:
How coconut oil is filtered.
You see when coconut oil is filtered improperly, or when the filters have not been cleaned in a while, bacteria and mold can find a happy home.
I know at this point many people want me to pick on a place like Costco and low-price brands that may not be all-that-careful about monitoring quality.
But I’ve even had my wife flip over a glass jar of “organic” coconut oil from a local mom-and-pop store here in Cincinnati sell coconut oil from a well-known respected store, and, what do ya know? A nice ring of green mold was encircling the coconut oil.
It’s actually kind of ironic since coconut oil is anti-bacterial and anti-mold by its nature and really should be helping your body rid itself of unhealthy toxins.
But the ultimate test is taste.
When my chiropractor, Dr Patrick Baker, really fell in love with Coconut Country Living’s organic extra virgin coconut oil, he challenged one of his patients:
“I bet if you tried CCL’s coconut oil and compared it to the one you bought at the big box store, you would wouldn’t go back!”
Well, she did try.
And she gladly reported back, “I had NO IDEA this whole time that the coconut oil I was using was RANCID! After I tried Coconut Country’s coconut oil, I threw the other one away!”
And to be truthful, I have told my own wife to throw away food gone bad too.
And no, I’m not against fermented food, but your taste buds are usually right when judging between rancidness and delightful and healthful fermentation. If you discover your coconut oil is rancid, throw it away.
