There are a wealth of coconut products available to consumers around the world. In the U.S., however, there are only a handful of foods available that are manufactured with a significant level of coconut (i.e., desiccated coconut, coconut milk, etc.), and even fewer that contain no additives and/or preservatives or are not made with coconut oil processed with solvents. [Solvent extraction with liquid hexane -- a petroleum derived solvent -- allows coconut oil manufacturers to increase their yields by using solvents to capture some of the remaining coconut oil that traditional milling cannot remove.]

     Below is a product list containing brand names, origin, manufacturer's contact information, lauric and capric acid composition, and rating scale (i.e., 0 to 5, 5 being the highest) based on appropriateness for inclusion in a nutritional support protocol. Lauric.org welcomes all submissions by manufacturers of products that fall under the category of functional food and may be suitable for inclusion in this list.
