Suma Coconut Oil in a 1kg jar

Submitted by on November 5, 2015 – 8:11 am4 Comments

Pure coconut, nothing added. Following the successful launch of our odourless, culinary coconut oil, made especially for fine cooking, we’re introducing our new 1kg size, packaged in a recyclable and reusable tub made from PET #1 material.
Like the smaller sizes in the range, this oil is especially suited for baking, roasting and high temperature frying in recipes. The larger 1kg size is perfect for catering – whether it’s for family cooking or in a commercial restaurant.


It offers all the health benefits of coconut oil, without the strong flavour, and makes an excellent alternative to butter or margarine. All Suma oil comes from freshly harvested coconuts, which are graded and processed at source within 48 hours of picking. To transform these exotic coconuts into our odourless oil, the coconut flesh is lightly steamed. This effectively removes the flavour but still retains much of the nutritional value.
Suma’s odourless coconut oil is produced sustainably in the Philippines, by a community-oriented farmer cooperative which creates new opportunities for workers in poor farming communities.
What’s more, you can rest assured that absolutely all of Suma’s products are 100% vegetarian and animal-cruelty free.

Available from independent grocers and health food shops.

GT075 6 x 1kg £37.74 RRP £8.39

    i use a very lot of virgin coconut oil so would definitely buy larger jars but not plastic as it has been reported that its chemicals seep into the food. Please can u give your us your thoughts and reasons about using the most planet friendly packaging that won’t harm us . thanks lisa

    Hi Lisa
    Thanks for your comment, we really like to hear from our customers.
    The tub used is recyclable and reusable and made from PET #1 material. This material is commonly used in the food industry by ethically minded companies who wish to provide their products in a recycled and recyclable container. It is not an ordinary ‘plastic’.
    Your comment has made us realise that the wording in our article may be misleading so will amend it to give more detail.

    I use coconut oil for making vegan cheeses so need to know if the plastic tub you sell yours in is strong enough to microwave so the whole tub is liquid? Thank you.

  • Abigail says:

    Can you tell me if the Suma organic coconut oil is hexane free – ie hexane or other chemicals are not used in the processing? If it does use hexane do you stock other brands which don;t use hexane? thank you
