Nutiva Organic Refined Coconut Oil
Nutiva organic refined coconut oil is made from certified organic dried coconut and steam-refined for a higher smoke point and more neutral flavor compared to virgin coconut oil.

Nutritional Benefits of Coconut Oil
Once a central part of the traditional Pacific Islander diet, coconut is fast becoming a staple in modern healthy diets. Cultures who have consumed coconut as a major dietary staple have reported excellent health.
Coconut contains lauric acid, a medium-chain fatty acid also found in human breast milk. Lauric acid makes up about 50% of coconut oil. The medium-chain fatty acids found in coconut oil are metabolized differently compared to long-chain fatty acids found in animal fats; they go straight to the liver from the digestive tract where they are used as a quick source of energy. The lauric acid in coconut milk has antimicrobial properties, as well.
How to Use Refined Coconut Oil
Coconut oil is extremely versatile and can be used as an alternative to butter and other vegetable oils. A solid at cooler temperatures, it becomes liquid when warmed. It takes heat well and can be used for baking, sauteeing, stir-frying or anywhere else you would use vegetable oil, shortening or butter.
Coconut oil is also commonly used as an all-natural personal/ beauty product: apply generously to skin, lips, or hair as a luscious moisturizer and conditioner.
Virgin vs Refined Coconut Oil
Nutiva organic refined coconut oil has been stream-refined to withstand higher cooking temperatures and to have a more neutral aroma and flavor compared to Nutiva organic virgin coconut oil. For recipes where a coconut flavor is not desired or for medium to high heat cooking, choose Nutiva refined coconut oil.
