The Top Ten Things to Look for When Buying Coconut Oil

 

Coconut Oil
A great buy!

  1. Certified organic and non- GMO (Healthiest ind especially if you intend to eat it)
  2. Made from fresh coconuts, not dried copra (Depends on how particular you are)
  3. Cold-processed (Heat affects the quality of the end product)
  4. Unrefined, Unbleached, Unfermented
  5. Chemical-free
  6. Undeodorized (Depending on if you seriously dislike or can’t take the smell of coconuts you can get a deoderized kind but my best recommendation is to go the undeoderized route)
  7. Unhydrogenated (Hydrogenated fats break down quickly; pure, unrefined, unbleached coconut oil never goes rancid, much unlike other hydrogenated oils)
  8. Pure white (Exactly like fresh cut coconut when solid, when liquid it appears clear)
  9. Tastes like fresh coconut  (If the product you bought doesn’t taste this way, its integrity is very questionable)
  10. Has a fresh coconut fragrance (If the product you bought doesn’t smell this way and is not noted on the label the integrity of you product is very questionable)
