Coconut is one of the world’s most nourishing superfoods. This excellent all-purpose oil is great for sautéing, baking, and body care. The benefits of refined coconut oil are that it has a higher smoke point than virgin coconut oil—allowing you to cook with it at up to 400°F (versus 350°F for virgin coconut oil)—as well as having a neutral scent and flavor, making it ideal for recipes where a coconut flavor is not desired.
Using fair-trade certified coconuts sourced from Southeast Asia, Nutiva Organic Refined Coconut Oil is processed immediately upon harvesting. The creamy, white meat of the coconut is scooped out of the shell by hand, and then steam refined—absolutely no chemicals are used! Coconut contains lauric acid, a medium-chain fatty acid also found in human breast milk. Lauric acid makes up about 50% of coconut oil and is prized for it’s relative health benefits as a saturated fat that is more easily digestible with fewer calories per serving.
