Coconut is one of the world’s most nourishing superfoods. This excellent all-purpose oil is great for sauting, baking, and body care.Unlike other companies that use chemicals, Nutiva Refined Coconut Oil is made though a steam refining process. Absolutely no chemicals are used!The benefit of refined coconut oil is that it has a higher smoke point than virgin coconut oil. You can cook with it at up to 400F (versus 350F for virgin coconut oil). It also has a neutral scent and flavor (versus virgin coconut oil which has a distinct coconut smell and flavor). This makes it ideal for recipes where a coconut flavor is not desired. Refined Coconut Oil and Virgin Coconut Oil have the same benefits of 63% Medium Chain Triglycerides and 50% Lauric Acid. Organic Non-GMO Steam Refined Non-hydrogenated*Bottled in a facility that packs peanut oil.
