Not so sure
June 15, 2013
I'm not so sure about Coconut Oil Organic. This is the third brand of coconut oil I've bought and this one stands out from the other two. First, the consistency is much different. When it shipped to me it was completely liquid of course because of the hot weather. However, it still hasn't hardened to a solid yet and it's been about a week. Now it's just a strange chunky consistency and it's a mess when I want to scoop some out to use for cooking or other uses. I like the coconut oil to be solid, especially when using for my hair or skin, so that I can scoop out a chunk and rub it in my hands to melt it. This brand of coconut oil, although it doesn't have the coconut taste when cooking, also acts differently when cooking. It seems to heat up much faster and maybe have a lower boiling point, because it pops and crackles a lot more when cooking vs. the other two brands I've bought (one Trader Joes, another a brand off Pure Formulas). So, all in all I'm just not sure about this brand.
Pros:No coconut flavor with cooking
Cons:Strange consistency, seems to pop/crack, almost burn when cooking at high heat.
