De-Bittered Stevia has no unpleasant aftertaste. This blend has none of the characteristic bitterness of typical stevia sweeteners.
Organic coconut oil burns fat rapidly. Fats from coconut oil aren’t stored. Instead, they’re used immediately for energy.
Coconut oil stays fresh up to two years, has a nice buttery flavor, and is one of the healthiest choices for cooking or baking.
Organic coconut butter replaces spreads, cream, cream cheese and butter. Naturally cholesterol-free. Add to smoothies, sauces, dressings and desserts.
