Re: coconut oil [edited]

My understanding is the shelf life is a year
and a half. I have a case of it in waiting
myself and only keep some in the fridge so
I can scrape it out with a spoon and feel
like I am sucking on a wad of oil...ggg

Does VCNO need to be kept in the refrigerator, and how long does it last?

No, VCNO does not need to be kept in the refrigerator. In the Philippines and other tropical climates, where the ambiance air temperature is much higher than North America, people traditionally have not refrigerated coconut oil. Virgin Coconut oil is very stable since it is unrefined and mostly saturated. Tropical Traditions VCNO samples have been shown to show no breakdown in a constant liquid state at temperatures above 80 degrees for over 2 years. The expiration dates on our VCNO are for two years, and on our EPCO they are 18 months. We do recommend you store the oil out of direct sunlight. In the tropics Virgin Coconut Oil is almost always a liquid, since it’s melting point is about 76 degrees F. In North America it will usually be a solid, butter-like consistency. It can be stored in either form.

This is where I buy my oil and they have
and they are offering free shipping until
Sept. 23~~
