Description – We stock 4 types of coconut oil. Fractionated is liquid at room temperature and the most refined. Organic and standard coconut oils are solid at room temperature but have a neutral aroma. Organic virgin coconut oil is the least refined being pressed directly from the coconut and simply being filtered. It is softer than standard coconut oil and retains its natural aroma and maximum nutrient value.
