What does "Bukobaba" mean?

It’s two words merged into one.

“Buko” means “young coconut” in Tagalog. Tagalog is an Austronesian language spoken as a first language by the ethnic Tagalog people of the Philippines.

”Baba” is a term of affection roughly translating to “Baby”, and is Raquel’s nickname she grew up with. In her family, the little cousins are also nicknamed, “Baba”.

Are all your products organic?

Technically, yes. All of our products are made with organic ingredients, but only some of Bukobaba products are officially USDA certified, as it is quite costly.

There is white oil at the top of my coconut jam jar. Is this normal?

Yes! Just like natural peanut butter, oil may naturally rise to the top of your coconut jam jar. It's coconut oil, and it will appear liquid and clear in warmer temperatures. In cooler temperatures, the oil will appear solid and naturally white.

All you need to do is stir the jam to combine and enjoy!

Consider storing your jam jar in a cool dry area away from sunlight.

Are your products gluten-free & soy-free?

Yes, and we are also vegan, paleo, and GMO-free! We take pride in using very simple ingredients to create our coconut essentials.
