  • Coconut oil in uk..

    Hi there,
    Been primal for couple of weeks and loving it.. Tried Zoe harcombe a few months ago but head wasn't in right place.
    PB is much easier to get head around and easier to follow.
    Now my question is in the Uk where do you buy you're coconut oil from?? I can get it from holland and barrett but I wondered if you guys can recc a better supplier as going through it at a rate of knots..


    Thanks

    There are a couple of independent health shops I use in Coventry. So my advice would be to look around locally and see if you can find it anywhere that's independent, rather than a chain such as H&B. That way you should save a bit of money!

      I can't offer an alternative but was in a Holland & Barrett today and they were having a buy-one-get-one-half-price sale, which might make it slightly cheaper.

          If you have an area where ethnic cuisine is the norm, head there. There will usually be wholesalers who would happily sell to the normal market. Works for me!

            We do have a chinese supermarket and Asian cash and carry but I read somewhere that the coconut oil they sell isn't of a high enough grade?? Or is that cobblers?

              It's partly true, I got friendly with the Japanese store owner (he is a master of my martial and is helping me with my broken Japanese too now lol) and he now orders in higher grade coconut oil at the same price! A smile and conversation goes a long way eh? Just ask really

                      Tesco's do it as well, I generally go to the independant organic/health food shops in my area though (Bristolians on here might recognise the names Scoopaway, Harvest & Better Food Co)! Have you got anything similar that you can try?

                      What I wouldn't mind trying to get hold of is a bottle of coconut amino's!

                      Cheers

                            I buy mine from Better Food Co.

                            Tescos is cheaper then Sainsbury's and the offer from the Coconut Oil Company posted by chronyx is similar value to the Better Food Co, so the best buy for most UK peeps.

                              Holland & Barrett also to a buy-one-get-one-for-a-penny promotion. I've noticed though that their 'Perfectly Pure' brand appears not to be organic. I also saw some reasonable offers, comparable to those mentioned above, on ebay.
                              All the best!
