Kelapo Coconut Oil Introduces Bulk Sizes for Foodservice Use (and Coconut Enthusiasts): Coconut Oil Appearing in the Kitchens of Some of America’s Hottest Bakeries

Tampa, FL, December 25, 2011 --( Kelapo Extra Virgin Coconut Oil has announced the newest addition to the company’s ever-growing line of coconut oil products. Thanks to the growing demand for coconut oil in professional kitchens, Kelapo is now available in convenient 1-gallon and 5-gallon containers.

In the past few years, extra virgin coconut oil has made a big comeback as a popular foodservice ingredient. The increase in use is due to the uptick in gluten free, vegetarian, organic, and trans fat free options in bakeries and restaurants. Coconut oil may be used to replace butter, soybean oil, peanut oil, and other common oils.

Popular bakery Baby Cakes, with locations in New York, Orlando, and LA, uses coconut oil in all of its baked goods siting the beneficial properties of coconut oil which are on their website, Other bakeries around the country, like True Bakery near Chicago and Philadelphia’s Sweet Freedom Bakery, are also featuring organic coconut oil in their sweet and savory products. Mainstream restaurants have begun using coconut oil in their kitchens as well, and Kelapo has received increased requests for bulk products.

The 1-gallon and 5-gallon containers of Kelapo, packaged in recycled, PBA-free plastic, are available for foodservice, retailer, and consumer purchase. Many consumer requests for the larger sizes come from coconut enthusiasts who are using coconut oil for everything at home, from cooking to body care and beyond.

Kelapo has traditionally catered to the home cook, recently making a splash with the introduction of conveniently packaged Extra Virgin Coconut Oil Pre-measured Baking Sticks. With more consumers turning to coconut oil as the healthiest option for cooking and baking, the company plans to continually provide the highest quality, largest selection of organic coconut oil products.
