  • Coconut Oil in the UK?

    Hi,

    Reading Robb Wolf recently he mentions buying a gallon tub of coconut oil. So far I've only found small tubs in the UK. Does anyone know a reliable supplier in the UK who sells large tubs of coconut oil?

    I haven't tried this supplier yet, but they do sell coconut oil in bulk if you need it!

      Not large but good price: H+B were doing a 12 pot for 1/2 price last week.

            I use this product - it's fantastic stuff - the more you order the cheaper it gets.

                What's the deal with the KTC stuff? That's dirt cheap compared to any other oil I've seen, I can't help thinking there's a catch.

                  It's refined rather than virgin and/or organic, according to this: KTC 100% Pure Coconut Oil 500ml - Herbs, Gardens & Health

                  Benefits of virgin and/or organic coconut oil can be found here: Coconut Oil Health Benefits | Mark's Daily Apple

                    They sell out quickly though so might be worth ordering from their website. I just had 7 tubs delivered. Free shipping over 40.
                    It doesn't appear to be organic or extra virgin though.

                      Hi, I just got some for Christmas too. You can use coconut oil on your face, as well. I do, in Ohio winters!

                        I read somewhere (forget where now) that extra virgin coconut oil is a scam... it's all the same.

                        That being said, I totally bought the H&B stuff when it was half price. My only gripe is that it comes in plastic tubs. I need more glass jars so I can decant it!

                          Not necessarily a scam, but really the only difference between organic Virgin and organic refined is some coconut flavor and whatever enzymes/raw food vital life force/magic/etc... properties you wish to ascribe to raw coconut that hasn't been heated.

                          I for one am more interested in the fatty acid composition of Coconut oil rather than its raw food properties, and its fat breakdown remains unchanged (high saturated fat, plenty of MCT, etc...) unless you go for a fractioned or hydrogenated coconut oil (which will be labeled as such)
