Extra Virgin Coconut Oil is among the healthiest, most versatile dietary oils in the world. An excellent cooking oil with its natural coconut flavor and aroma, we think it is simply the best tasting, most aromatic coconut oil on the planet.
Extra Virgin Coconut Oil is a stable, healthy saturated fat that is naturally free from trans-fatty acids. It contains medium-chain fatty acids, such as lauric acid, which have a shorter chain length than most animal derived long-chain saturated fatty acids. Consumption of coconut oil at recommended levels, along with a healthy diet and lifestyle, helps maintain already healthy levels of cholesterol.
Unlike refined coconut oils, Extra Virgin Coconut Oil is not hydrogenated, bleached, refined or deodorized. It is produced using the same methods farmers have used for centuries. Meat from only the freshest, organically grown coconuts is shredded and cold-pressed to create coconut milk, and then fermented to extract the oil.
May safely consume between 1-4 tablespoons per day. Use in cooking, frying, baking or in smoothies. Can be used in place of other oils including butter.
100% organic expeller pressed Philippine coconut oil

Many companies do NOT use Bisphenol A-free plastic containers when store coconut oil and that pose a problem with leaching these kind of chemicals because they are fat soluble. 'Garden of Life' offers his virgin coconut oil in a glass container on acceptable price. The only problem is the weight of the item for international customers.
I have been buying this for years. I have never seen this so bad before...The jar I received last week, upon taking out one scoop I saw what looked like tainted product, sort of contaminated looking. So I scooped out a couple spoonfuls off top of product, and found two sections of discolored areas, dirty looking in nature, sort of like a pnch of motor oil mixed in and as I scooped further, a sort of crazing pattern emerged in the lower portions. I have seen other discoloration of this product before but not this dark and in huge areas. Anyway iherb wanted photos, so I proceeded to burn up an hour of my time trying to photograph white stuff... looking into the jar, and was not that successful. Then I decided I would try to slow melt the bad portions to see what would emerge, and what I found was that there was two larger chunks of product with a higher melting point (they refused to melt at the same temperature as the white oil). So I can only conclude that the discoloration is actually, a filler oil of some kind. I still like the taste of this product, but purity is now in question. I will have to use this big jar now (as I cannot prove my claim to iherb without a clear photo) as body oil and I don't feel like eating it. If you find your product discolored know that iherb will want proof in a photo and its pretty hard to photograph white stuff inside a jar. So I would suggest you go with a different brand just incase.

It has the richest coconut smell among various coconut oils I've used. Good for adding in food. Rubbing a tiny amount on my hair is enough to moistturize and de-frizz.

그냥 먹는건 쉬운거 아니지만 맛있긴해요. 얼굴에 바르고 먹고 사용도가 좋네요.비타민 e 오일 섞어서 속눈썹 영양제로도 쓴다는데 효과있나 만들어봐야겠어요.일단 눈 부위에 발라도 눈에 오일클린징같이 막이 생기는 느낌없이 깔끔해요.

Not much fragrance and extremely greasy
Posted by AdenFox on Aug 18, 2015
I have tried several brands of coconut oil. This is not as easy to digest and it has a very greasy texture. Not to mention it does not has a nice fragrance to it and it is impossible to use it for baking as it leaves grease everywhere when the cake was baked. My cake just does not rise when I bake with this. I am switching back to Nutiva. It's the best oil I had ever tasted and used.
Share the Best Spot with Artisana Coconut Oil
Posted by RubiesHealth on Jun 16, 2015
This product is as good as Artisana Cold-pressed Organic coconut oil. I buy whichever gives the better price during purchase. I have tried several brands from iHerb and many from my local organic stores. None can compare. I eat this raw on rice cakes or use it to cook Asian coconut rice - nasi lemak (1tsp of oil for 1cup of rice, add a pinch of salt and 2-3 screw-pine leaves, also known as pandan leaf). Coconut oil is very stable to heat and suitable for cake making and frying pancakes. Just avoid charring.
