Pure Coconut Oil at £1.19 only. From Manchester Superstore in Longsight (opposite Barclays Bank).
Same thing in tesco (in jar) is £6.99!!
Coconut oil is the healthiest oil out there. If you want to give it a try then £1.19 is better than 7 quid. :-)

Great price, its the best oil to use when making popcorn too.

Tesco sell this for around the same price. It's good stuff though so have some great. Bit of a pain to have to keep melting it to get it to pour out of the bottle though

OP, this isn't the same type of product as the Tesco one you refer to in your post, which is made by Groovy. The differences are that one ranged by Tesco is a cold pressed, unrefined organic virgin oil while the KTC one is none of these. They consequently have very different properties.

Very delicately put Comparing KTC oil with an organic, virgin, cold-pressed oil is a bit like comparing cheap white bread with something made by an artisan baker - there is no meaningful comparison.

Tastes like Vaseline.

yeah I would advise against using this product or a ktc oil products. If you want proper coconut tasting nutrient rich oil you should go for Raw pressed organic extra virgin coconut oil as mentioned above. I think Ocado had some on offer for £6.66.

Do not buy this, its not healthy for you, as others have stated, you want to buy cold pressed, virgin oil which tastes and smells like coconut. this stuff smells like grease.

While it might be high in saturated fat - so are shedloads of other products we eat and don't give a damn about it... Anyway only posted it because u wanted to give it a try for a long time but for definitely not for £7 from tesco.

Agree, doesn't smell like grease. Has a very faint coconut aroma, and I have even found shreds of coconut meat in KTC oil, so it is not overly refined at all.

Ignore the 'it must be virgin or it doesn't work' comments from those who have been brainwashed by sponsored so-called health articles and internet hype. The benefits of coconut oil are due to the nature of the medium chain fatty acids in the oil. These are not altered whether the oil is cold pressed or heated (and the refining is done at temperatures best described as warm, not hot). If you want any other nutrients of the coconut, then simply eat some coconut rather than the oil. The benefits of the oil are present in ALL coconut oils.

I think you are missing the point that others are making. Have a read of this comparing refined/ unrefined oil

Completely misleading and irrelevant article. Bleached and deodorised coconut oil is predominantly used in the cosmetics and toiletries industry, mostly in soaps. It is also used in some margarines and processed foods.

The stuff that is sold by KTC is NOT bleached and deodorised, nor is it 'hydrogenated'. It is simply extracted using heat. The difference between KTC coconut and virgin coconut is excatly like the difference between a bottle of Phillip Berio olive oil, compared with a bottle of Phillip Berio Extra Virgin olive oil. Both have the health benefits of olive oil.

@Jonny678 - whilst you are entitled to your opinion and, of course, entitled to put anything down your food-chute that you wish, would you please be kind enough to quote your sources for the statements that you have just made? Thank you.
