Trader Joe's Organic Virgin Coconut Oil is derived from meat of matured coconuts. The production starts with freshly harvested coconuts that are de-husked and grated. Then, when the meat of the coconut is still fresh, it's cold pressed and filtered to remove any remaining pieces of the fruit. That's the process. Nothing more. Some coconut oil is extracted using high heat, chemicals and even bleach but not Trader Joe's coconut oil. Producing the oil in this more pure, natural way, we are able to retain the nutrients, flavor characteristics and aromas of fresh coconuts. Trader Joe's Organic Virgin Coconut Oil is excellent in cooking - it stands up to relatively high heat and imparts a distinctive flavor - in salad dressings, for baking, and even as a moisturizer for dry skin. It's true! It will fluctuate from a liquid to a solid state, depending on the temperature at which it's stored, so don't be surprised when you see liquid in a jar that's been stored in a hot pantry.

The price point of this product makes it immediately attractive. It's only detractor, the labeling, fails to mention the various qualities that a health concious consumer needs to know when comparing the more expensive alternatives. After some research, a manager at the Trader Joe's-Bollinger helped unravel this dilemma by providing the following information. Trader Joe's Coconut Oil is: non-hydrogenated, cold pressed--no heat is used at any time during the processing, raw filtered, unpasturized, and is strained. Hope this helps!
I love, love, love this coconut oil! It has a great flavor and I use it for almost everything! I even made a deodorant out of it (2 tbsp each of: coconut oil, baking soda, cornstarch, and shea butter (optional, I do not add the shea butter) It really works!). Now, I have only purchased this in store so when I saw that Amazon was selling it for almost $18 a jar I was VERY disappointed!!! In store it is only $5.99!!! So buyer beware, it is an awesome product, but the price on here is ridiculous. Enjoy!
While this is an absolutely fantastic product that I use all the time, I hope you all realize that it ONLY COSTS $5.99 AT TRADER JOES. I realize some of you might not have a Trader Joe's in you area, but this price is ridiculous!
