Re: Has anyone tried Nutiva's Coconut Oil? Which brand of CO do you recommend?

I love the taste of tropical traditions virgin co and wilderness family's philipine oil. They taste exactly the same to me, probably because they're both made using the same method. This time I got it from wfn because they have their palm oil on sale and I got a gallon of that too. The palm oil is pretty tasteless so it's good for cooking when you don't want a coconut flavor in your food. And it's a deep orange color which makes cooked food look more flavorful and richer. As an example -I make navy bean soup which is pale and bland looking, but when I add a sqirt of palm oil it takes on a rich golden color like the old Bean and Bacon soup I grew up on. This fools my family into thinking there's meat in it.

I don't care for the wilderness family's indian oil or the coconut oil online because they don't taste as "coconutty". On the other hand that may be better for cooking where you don't want a coconut flavor. I've never tried the nutiva.

You really need to heat it only once, then pour it into another container. I live in a warm climate so I keep mine in a pour bottle with a spout for 10 months and then when it gets solid I use it out of a mason jar. I buy it by the gallon.
