I use Nutiva organic extra-virgin cold-pressed coconut oil. It's pricey, but if I'm going to occasionally eat it with a spoon, I'd rather it be pure! ;)

Nutrition.com has a pretty good sale going right now.

I also use the Nutiva extra virgin. I buy it in the huge jars. You can get a pretty good price at Amazon or Swanson's Vitamins. It does have a coconut smell which I like. Some don't like that smell so use other brands. Sometimes some of the refined coconut oil is refined with chemicals and I don't like that.

I ordered mine from Tropical something? It is extra-virgin. They were having a 2 for 1 sale, so I bought 4 jars.

That depends on whether you like Coconut or not. Me I hate the stuff always have, so I go for the refined, tasteless, odorless.

virgin cold pressed is the best kind to get to make sure all the nutrients are still there.... but it does have a coconut smell and taste, which makes it hard for some to stomach. I can't scramble my eggs in it, but I can bake with it or use it for all nut granola... I put it in my boys' smoothies, use it for stir-fry...

coconut oil confusion

Im somewhat on the confusion train. So many people use/eat coconut oil and swear by it,BUT, I went to the WebMD and they say Dont use coconut oil because of the VERY high saturated fat content, which can lead to heart problems etc.etc.. What does one do??? Any feed back from from seasoned users might help. thanks
