Introducing Nutiva Organic Refined Coconut Oil

NutivaIntroRefinedCoconutOil_2-webWe 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

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.

    What and how do I figure out amount of coconut and almond flour? I can not eat whole wheat flour! Any suggestions for measuring and figuring out these flours!!! Thank you

    • Madalyn Crum says

      Hi Diane! Coconut flour can be used as a substitute for up to 1/3 the normal amount of a recipe’s flour. Note that you’ll need to add up to 1/3 more liquids as well. If using coconut flour as a substitute for the entire amount of traditional flour, be aware that you’ll need to adjust your recipe accordingly. Because it is non-glutinous, it is necessary to add egg, chia gel, or even substitute a small amount of tapioca flour to assure that it gels properly. Thanks!

    Hi I use your Nutiva Coconut oil both for cooking and in health/medicinal use for lotions, balms, etc. with essential oils. The last Nutiva coconut oil product I used, which I am now out of, melted at over 76 degrees which was great for medicinal use, because it also re-solidified, or became gel like anyway, back again at less than 76 degrees. What would be the melting point of this new product? The same? Is is available in fractionated (liquid) form? LOVED the original form, but this will be more versatile for fussy people like my husband who didn’t want coconut flavor “in everything” as he said! Thank you!

    • The Nutiva Team says

      Hi Marlene, the melting point of the coconut oil will be the same regardless of how many times it has melted and then re-solidified. We’re glad your husband likes our Refined Coconut Oil! Thanks for your support.

    I don’t see extra virgin coconut oil on your list of product anymore the last time i ordered i got virgin oil instead of extra virgin Why?

    • The Nutiva Team says

      Hi Barrington. Our coconut oil is virgin, meaning it is unrefined. In the past, we embraced the term “extra virgin coconut oil” to distinguish our dedication to the highest quality. In the USA, there is no legal definition or standard for the term, “extra virgin” as it applies to coconut oil. In other countries, however, there are standards of identity regarding the term. For example, in Canada we have always labeled our same high quality coconut oil as “organic virgin coconut oil,” to comply with regulations. As Nutiva continues to grow and offer our coconut oil to more countries with varying regulations, we want to create consistency across all our labels. For this reason, we will be using the term “organic virgin coconut oil” going forward, but our high quality product and processes will remain the same. You will see this change on our new packaging that will appear on shelves in early 2014. Thank you!

      Hi Bill, thank you for your question. Our Refined Coconut Oil is not the same as MCT oil, however, both our Virgin and Refined Coconut Oils do contain the naturally occurring medium chain triglyceride lauric acid. Thanks!

    Why is it that I purchased Nutiva, Organic White Chia Seed, 12 oz (340 g) which shows a product of Mexico, but what i got was a product of Argentina, and comes not in white, but yellow packaging?

  6. Lindsey says

    I was excited to try this product for cooking and baking because of the “neutral flavor” claim on the label. I have found that this product has an odd chemical taste (although I see that no chemicals are used in the refining process) and leaves an unpleasant after taste in baked goods. I am disappointed and I will use this product for homemade body products instead of for cooking and baking.

    • The Nutiva Team says

      Hi Lindsey, thank you for your feedback. We’re sorry you weren’t satisfied with your recent coconut oil purchase. We encourage you to contact so we can investigate this issue. Thanks again for bringing this to our attention!

    I always assumed refined coconut oil wasn’t good for you but never really knew why. Thanks for shedding new light on the matter and actually explaining the differences behind them and how each has its own beneficial purposes!!

  8. Precious says

    It is December 12,2014, I have finally convinced my Doctor that I am not taking any more medicine! Surprisingly she agreed with me this time, Thank you Lord!!! She mentioned coconut oil. I have been struggling with acne and have bad dark marks, I have just bought your refined organic virgin coconut oil and am praying for the best. Will let you know my progress :-)
