read up on coconut oil. Two types. One is good for you, the other is worse than lard. it's how it's processed.
Yes this is prob the lard version!
It needs to be organic, raw and extra virgin. cold pressed too. I buy the coconut merchant one off amazon
Is this the lard stuff? Doesn't look to healthy in the jars
£1.50 each in bnm
Correct, this is the cheap processed version. The one you want is the virgin coconut oil. Usually twice the price of this

​Dont believe everything you read online. There is virgin coconut oil but no such thing as extra virgin coconut oil. Its purely marketing to suck in customers.

When one refers to coconut oil as extra virgin coconut oil, the word ‘extra’ is indeed extra. The APCC does not mention anything about extra virgin coconut oil.

Anyway there is nothing wrong with KTC coconut oil unless you're a brand snob and jump on the bandwagon of oh it must be healthier if its marketed by Lucy B. Heres a review of KTC:

veganheath.info/ktc…oil

Its been around for decades unlike the new health fad oil that started appearing a few years ago.

If you really do want virgin written on the jar to make you feel better aldi sell a virgin coconut oil 300ml jar for £2.99.

Hot - As previously mentioned also £1.49 in B&M (seen in Widnes store)

Don't go around being rational. It upsets the health fad gofers on HUKD. They don't want to know that there is no chemical or health difference between this and the stuff they pay five times the price for.

The bad coconut oil is hydrogenated. Any stuff about virgin oil being good and refined bad is nonsense. This appears to be an excellent summary.

​I agree with all the brand and marketing comments. but organic is definelty better for u!
Can you put this on your hair?

Can you put this on your hair?




Yes, you can.
This is RBD coconut oil... Refined, Bleached and Deodorised. It is made from copra which is the dried flesh of the coconut. Why anyone would even THINK this was the same as the more expensive extra virgin stuff you pay more for is beyond me. Not EVERYTHING is a marketing gimmick you know!

Ok that's available at Aldi 2.99 for 300ml jar.
I don't believe there is a difference in it's beneficial properties. There might be a difference in taste, but I think people misunderstand the extraction process.

Besides that, I don't buy it to eat. It's a saturated fat. You can flower that up however you want to.

Heat added OP. I hope I can find it, I haven't had any luck with Sainsbury's and coconut oil in the past. Was it in the international section?

It was with all the Indian large bags of rice etc, but may vary from store to store where they place it plus not every store will stock it. I never bought it fir any use and I use butter or olive oil for cooking in a pan or sunflower oil for Yorkshire puddings and roast potatoes.

Thanks, I will have a look next time I'm at the big Sainsbury's
Try it out in the bedroom, works wonders. Better than expensive lubricant and lasts much longer!

*DON'T use it with condoms as it may break down the latex oO

​So please tell us what the difference is between the fatty acid profile at the end of each process and where the extra money is going when buying extra virgin cold pressed organic coconut oil?

Interesting article.

I certainly avoid refined oils though, not only due to nutrient loss and potential chemical residues.

I stick to animal fat (clarified butter mostly) for frying and roasting, butter, extra virgin olive oil or virgin coconut oil for (almost) everything else.
We give this to our dogs, about ¼ to ½ a teaspoonful with their food on the morning as it is supposed to help with itchy skin. It seems to work. Been using it for six months and just ordered a 4 x 500ml pack from amazon for a tenner.

Haven't tried the Aldi one yet but my daughter say's it's ok. I have tried the KTC coconut oil it tastes awful, I wouldn't recommend you try it.

I disagree and this article helps explain why.

Exactly how is an organic carrot better for you than a regular one for example?
KTC coconut oil was the first coconut oil I purchased, years ago, as it was so much cheaper than the others and I didnt know any different back then. I can confirm that this stuff is crap. No coconut smell or taste due to it being processed with solvents. Dont bother with this one. Not good.

Yes, you can.

Seriously?? The fact you are suggesting saturated fat is to be avoided only demonstrates how much reading you need to do on modern nutritional science/research. You are evidently still stuck in the 80's. You'll be saying cholesterol kills you next!

Yes seriously, but enjoy your Pinterest health fad. The next craze will be animal fats. Mark my words.

That's a bonus to me, since I don't eat it and the smell makes me gag.
squeeze the coconut, oil comes out = extra virgin
put thru again =virgin oil
you can tell usually because its in tiny pieces rather than a block
anything else is extracted using chemicals and loses any goodness, doesn't smell of anything, becomes as hard as a rock at cool temp. most of the benefits are lost this might be good for lubricating hinges but not much else

I heard they even use dihydrogen monoxide in the process!

You are simply ignorant of science. Read up and do some research before your next post... you'll look less foolish.
