Gaps Diet: here are some frequently asked questions and our answers
This page was created because someone asked two questions, and we answered both. There is a free version of this page, open for anyone to read. But this is the more comprehensive version, only available to those who subscribe. : ) Feel free to ask more questions, to see if we can answer them here.
Question 1 (sugar and additives)
“I am on the gaps diet due to health issues. Can you guaranty me that
there is absolutely no sugar or additives of any kind in your coconut
products made with coconuts and virgin coconut oil?”
There is nothing added to any oil, or creamed coconut (mashed coconut meat), coconut flour (milled coconut meat), or freeze dried coconut chips. What makes us different in the New Zealand market place is that we specialise in the supply of virgin coconut oil because it is a complete product which requires no refining to deliver its life giving properties to those who eat it, oil pull with it, and use it on their skin or hair.
Our Virgin Coconut Oil is unadulterated. No refining, no deodorising, and no meddling.
- No additives
- No sugar
- No meddling
Question 2 (probiotics)
“Does the fermented oil contain natural probiotics due to the fermentation process?”
“Fermenting occurs naturally through grating, pressing and leaving at ambient temperature for 24-48 hours for the initial ferment.
It’s similar to the process of fermenting cabbage minus the salt – there’s a naturally occurring bacteria that initiates the fermentation process.
That means it has no residual probiotics.
Virgin organic unrefined coconut oil encourages gastro intestinal balance through the lauric acid killing off the pathogenic things in the gut – candida etc
