It is a great makeup remover plus I leave on my scalp and hair for a few hours for less itching (when stressed!) and super shiny, soft hair. Organic co also amazing and moisturiser on baby's skin.
great posts, very informative, thanks. Didn't realise about the low smoke point of this, I thought tge same, that co was all the same high sp so definitely helpful for me & my families future health just by knowing to keep the flames low. fascinated by nutrition

How do people cook with this? I used to buy the organic Biona Coconut Oil, as I could get it for £7 per 850g until the shop I purchased from went bust. Used to love the taste of it in cooking.

I started buying it because Coconut Oil is usually recommended for frying due to it's high smoke point, but most places forget to mention that only the heavily refined, none cold pressed, none organic version has a high smoke point (just like any highly refined oils).

After months of using it, I found out unrefined Coconut oil like this has one of the lowest smoke points 177°C, less than EV olive oil, making it useless for frying as the temperature needs to be a minimum of 150°C and often exceeds 200°C during frying. I just don't see what the other culinary uses for it are? Care to enlighten me, as I might start buying it again if I had a use!

I've recently been using ghee, and cold pressed rapeseed for frying as they both have high smoke points over 200°C, I'd use avocado if it wasn't so expensive.
Thanks for that, lots of useful information in your post that most folk are unaware of. :)

Been cooking and frying with it for years; being vegetarians might help us keep the temperature down but that's basically what we do - keep the heat down.

OK, things will take a little longer to cook in the frying pan but I think the flavours develop more. I fry eggs in it and that certainly works very well. Overall we use it virtually anywhere that we might use other oils or fats and, if it needs to be heated, we keep the heat down.

Lots of people see coconut oil as being more of a fat than an oil as it tends to be solid quite a lot of the time but gently raise the temperature over 25C and it melts; it can then be used to make a very nice warm dressing for a warmed salad or used on plain pasta or rice instead of butter. Some folk even use it instead of butter on their bread but that's not something that appeals to me. It's great in smoothies too.

My number 1 suggestion to anyone who cooks is to experiment with it anywhere you would use a fat or an oil; the chances of you producing something inedible are small and what's more likely is that you will discover all sorts of good things to use it for. :D

Your writing style is horrible, you're wrong in suggesting organic OO is ever more expensive than organic CO, and you're outrageously pedantic.
One definitely needs to be outrageously pedantic when some people just don't get the message and when, like you, they don't check their facts before complaining about other people.

Hi Helen - try using the oil on your hair after you've washed it and it is still damp. Makes you smell delicious and it isn't bad for your hair either. :)

Personally, not convinced about the other "coconut products" like the litre cartons of coconut milk drink that are supposed to get used as a substitute for "real" milk. I buy the tins of 82% solids coconut milk from either Aldi or Lidl (I stock up when they are on offer at 69p), I open the tin use half of it for cooking and the other half goes into a 1 litre bottle where it gets topped up with filtered water (we have a tap for that) and then, once the lid's on, it gets shaken about until it looks just like the expensive stuff from the supermarket. Costs £1.39 a litre from the supermarket and, even at full price from Aldi or Lidl, it costs 45p per litre. Oh and the amount of coconut in the homemade version is much higher than the shop bought stuff too.

p.s. not all coconut waters are created equal and, to me at least, even if they are as good as their marketing says they are, they're overpriced at around £3 per litre. Some research even suggests that most of the coconut waters on sale do not live up to their labels. Here's a link to - https://www.consumerlab.com/reviews/coconut-water-one-vita-coco-zico-review/coconut-water/PREVIEW/ - but you need to sign up for a free 1 day pass to check it out.

12.5 KG Virgin Coconut Oil £99.99 (Free Delivery) @ Coconoil.co.uk

Works out at £8.00 per kilo. Use in cooking and on skin / hair. Many health benefits hopefully others on here can highlight. I know 12.5 KG is a LOT but if stored properly it should last

Thank you for making the effort to reply. I think it will be as good quality as the Sri Lankan version otherwise they wouldn't stock it and there is a blog on Facebook of the the sourcing and development of the product and it sounds as though every care has been taken to make sure the oil is of the finest quality so I think I will buy :)
You are very welcome and I agree that the quality will be up to Coconoil's usual good standard.

Assuming you do go ahead and get some, I would be very interested in hearing what you think of it please. Perhaps,after a couple of weeks use, you could find a couple of minutes to PM me with your thoughts on its qualities?

I have ordered. I will let you know my thoughts in a couple of weeks. :)

@Madchester - as I mentioned earlier in post #5, I haven't actually used this oil, only the one that Coconoil sell that comes from Sri Lanka and is £11 per kilo. Whether fermented is better, sorry but that's not something that I've looked into.

Obviously you care or you would be buying the processed to death stuff that can be bought for a lot less than this. I aologise if you already know all this but, whatever you are planning to do with the oil, in this weather it is going to be liquid at room temperature. It has a melting point around 25C. With such a low melting point, it makes it difficult to spread on your toast unless, like me, you only like cold toast and keep your spreading oil in the fridge. :) The other thing is that it's great for cooking with (we cook with it all the time) but it cannot sensibly be used to fry at hot temperatures. Know that sounds like a contradiction but, for example, eggs only need a temperature of around 100C to fry and so that temperature is relatively low by comparison with the 177C smoke point of coconut oil. Above the smoke point, the oil starts to break down and starts to be no good for you at all.

We actually use this oil for all sorts of things. As mentioned, it's our main cooking fat for all aspects of cooking, great to add to smooothies, dips, salad dressings and marinades plus it gets used as hair-conditioner and is great for rubbing into your skin. Strange as it sounds, some folk don't get on with the fact that really good coconut oil smells and tastes of coconut. The smell and taste are definitely there but, as far as we are concerned, they add, in a positive way, to the things that we use the oil for.

Whichever of the organic virgin oils that you go for, it will be a decision you will enjoiy.
