What is coconut oil?
Coconut oil is natural substance obtained from fresh coconuts. It’s versatile and can be used as a butter substitute, baking ingredient or as a high-heat cooking oil. It’s also popular for skin/body/hair purposes.
How does coconut oil support health?
Approximately 60 percent of coconut oil is comprised of medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs), but, unlike other triglycerides (which mainly contain long chain fatty acids), MCTs may be beneficial to human health.*

Product is good quality; price is competitive.
I am a regular purchaser of this product which I use on a regular basis in cooking as well as for table use instead of less healthful fats. I find it quite tasty on my breakfast toast as well as used sparingly on my steamed vegetables. I saute and fry and grille with it as well. I have always been pleased with my Vitacost purchased products.
