We are very pleased to introduce our new Organic Refined Coconut Oil (available in 23 oz. glass jars & 54 oz. BPA-free containers). Look for it at Whole Foods Markets, natural food stores, and at nutiva.com.
Unlike other companies that use chemicals, Nutiva Refined Coconut Oil is made though a certified organic steam refining process. Absolutely no chemicals are used!
The benefit of refined coconut oil is that it has a higher smoke point than virgin coconut oil. You can cook with it at up to 400°F (versus 350°F for virgin coconut oil), so it’s great for sautéing and stir frying. You can also use it for everything from baking to body care.
Refined Coconut Oil also has a neutral scent and flavor (versus virgin coconut oil which has a distinct coconut smell and flavor). This makes it ideal for recipes where a coconut flavor is not desired. Refined Coconut Oil and Virgin Coconut Oil both have 63% Medium Chain Triglycerides and 50% Lauric Acid. Nutiva Organic Virgin Coconut Oil is unrefined, made from fresh coconuts and ideal for use at lower temperatures or if you prefer a coconut scent and flavor.
