The Perfect Blend
Each variety of MELT® Organic spreads is great tasting and a rich source of Medium Chain Fatty Acids. Our organic fruit- and plant-based oils are the “good” fats that your body burns as energy instead of storing as fat, thereby boosting metabolism.
Organic Virgin Coconut Oil
Organic virgin coconut oil (VCO) is possibly the finest, most versatile, unprocessed dietary oil. VCO is a stable, saturated fat that does not elevate undesirable (LDL) cholesterol: VCO has no trans fats or cholesterol. It is rich in plant-based saturated fats called Medium Chain Fatty Acids (MCFAs). VCO is also nature’s most abundant source of beneficial lauric acid. Extensive dietary research indicates components found in organic virgin coconut oil may boost metabolism, increase thyroid activity, promote weight loss, and provide optimal nutrient absorption. Plus, coconut oil has a similar melt point to butter making it ideal for baking and cooking.
Organic Flaxseed Oil
Organic flaxseed oil is one of the best sources of Omega‐3s available. Over the past 60 years, clinical research has linked life‐threatening diseases such as obesity, some forms of cancer, heart disease, and diabetes type II with a chronic deficiency of dietary Omega‐3 essential fatty acids. Flaxseed oil has the highest plant-based concentration of Omega‐3. Eating it can reverse Omega‐3 deficiencies common in the American diet. Organic flaxseed oil is an essential component of MELT Organic and ensures that every serving delivers the perfect balance of Omega 6s and Omega 3s, a ratio of 2:1.
Organic Palm Fruit Oil
Produced from the fruit of the palm not the palm’s kernel, palm fruit oil contains very high amounts of carotenoids (13 to 15 times more than carrots and 40 to 50 times more than tomatoes) the antioxidants that our bodies convert to Vitamin A. Vitamin A may also provide protection from free-radical damage that some studies have linked to cancer. Palm fruit oil is also a good source of Vitamin E due to its high levels of tocopherols and tocotrienols, which are effective in removing damaging oxygen-free radicals from our bodies. Plus, palm fruit oil is odorless and tasteless, making it ideal for baking and cooking. We ONLY source palm fruit oil that is certified Eco-Social and Fair Trade by the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) to ensure that it is produced using ethically and ecologically sound practices and is not linked to the deforestation of rain forests.
Organic Canola Oil
Canola oil, made from the crushed seeds of the canola plant, is a specifically bred (not genetically modified) variety of rapeseed. It is an excellent source of monounsaturated fats in the form of Oleic Acid (60%) and Omega-3 fatty acid, Alpha-Linoleic Acid (ALA) (10%). Canola oil has the lowest saturated fat content of any oil at just 7%. Studies show that ALA may help protect the heart through its effect on blood pressure, cholesterol, and inflammation. We only use organic canola oil that is expeller-pressed (hexane-free), and tested for GMOs and rancidity in every batch. Combined with the Omega 3s found in Organic flaxseed oil, organic canola oil ensures that every serving of MELT Organic delivers 425mg of Omega 3s in a perfect balance of Omega 6s and Omega 3s, a ratio of 2:1.
Organic Hi-Oleic Sunflower Oil
Organic hi-oleic sunflower oil is composed almost exclusively of monounsaturated fat (86%), with small amounts of saturated fat (10%), and polyunsaturated fat (4%). Hi-oleic oils have enhanced fatty acid profiles making them higher in monounsaturated fats and lower in polyunsaturated fats. Hi-oleic sunflower oil is also a source of Vitamin E.
