Coconut Oil – Refined

Once thought to be unhealthy due to its high saturated fat content, recent research has revealed that this tropical oil is actually one of the most healthful cooking oils. Can be used to replace butter or any other cooking oil in baking, cooking, or frying. It is a traditional favorite for enhancing flavor and texture and for preventing rancidity. Also ideal as a moisturizer right out of the jar or for making smooth soaps that won’t clog pores.

Coconut oil will be a clear liquid above room temperature. Typically, the oil is white and opaque when below 76 degrees F.
