Buying coconut oil for cooking.
Now, the blog link above about the benefits of coconut oil covers a little about why cooking with the stuff is a healthy option. And these days, coconut oil is big news in the kitchen. Basically, it is true that it is high in fats, but the good kind!
There is some debate about it. This really focuses around its temperature volatility (which all fats have when heated up). So while most health pros will advise avoiding fried foods (we knew that - no chips!) it's much more likely that online natural products and coconut oils that have clean processing methods (no secret nasties added) and that are organic, are going to be the healthier option.
This also goes for roasting and baking if you've fallen out of love with the frying pan! So, online, look for natural and organic varieties of coconut oil. And if you're a serious coco-health-nut, do read the ingredients and how its made. It's important! And (as we live and breathe organic) we have some lovely cooking oil to get your bake on with

Specialised coconut brands do it best.
Oh, they so do.
If a brand does organic coconut oil, like, really does it, we say they're the experts! We're not knocking corporate food production companies that have a coconut cooking oil in their product line, but we tend to love the smaller guys.
The independent sellers and brands who've discovered a great ingredient, where to source it and how to make it. And they do just that. And they do it so well! Our sellers, for example, can tell us exactly how and where the coconut oil ingredient is sourced. And better than that, exactly how their products are made and with what. So if you're doing that online search for the best coconut oil products, as well as checking out collections, search for independent brands that specialise in coconut oil.
Then you know you're getting the real deal because being a small and specialised brand means their authenticity and honesty about their products is their biggest selling point!
And may we introduce you to one of those fabulously authentic little brands right now? The utterly gorgeous Coconut Company! Guess what these guys do?
Top tips for buying coconut oil online made simple.
We hope we have narrowed it down. Not everything that glitters (or moisturises, or cooks) is the best version. Coconut oil as a straight product or an ingredient is a natural product. Keep it that way to ensure you buy only the best.
So our top tips for searching are..
- Always search for organic or natural coconut oil
- Find collections on sites to browse. It kinda narrows down the internet! Not all products with coconut oil as an active ingredient will show up in a search.
- Heading to specialist natural and organic sites first will easily narrow down your search to find the best quality.
- The ingredients lists of natural products don't read like a chemistry text book! So they are simple and easy to check!
- Head straight for the specialist independent brands. They will stock a range of coconut oil products, so it's great to see what they have first. They will be very fussy about what oil they use, how they use it and how its made.
- Spread your coconut wings! This little nut (well, quite large nut really) doesn't just give us oil .. its shell is used for some pretty nifty and sustainable products too! Check these out https://organics.com/collections/eco-coconut
