  • Coconut oil in stores?

    Can coconut oil be bought in regular stores or just online?

    rosemary,

    It is in stores, but not the good coconut oil. You need to order Nutivia Brand from Amazon.Com ( free shipping) for the best coconut oil.
    Nutiva Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, 54-Ounce Containers (Pack of 2): Amazon.com: Grocery & Gourmet Food

    or Gold Label coconut oil from Tropical Traditions. Tropical Traditions frequently has 2 for 1 sales with free shipping.
    Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil - Certified Organic from Tropical Traditions

    Some say tropical traditions Gold is the best. I just ordered some this week for a test to see which is best.

      You can find some in trader joes, it's their own brand. Living in CA I'm confident you should be able to find it at any health store or even regular supermarket, just search the oil aisle and/or the international aisle.

      Honestly though, go to amazon.com and 'subscribe' to either one Grizz suggested and get it with free shipping. I have mine set to deliver every six months, which for me is about right.

              Yeah, you never have to worry about it - coconut oil is easy to get, both online and at many markets.

                Know where it is. I was down there buying tvp until I got away from it. Really a nice big bright store. Most health food stores remind me of a place full of ill people trying to cure something. The one near us is usually

                  That's good to know. I hadn't thought about cooking with it, I want to supplement my fat intake. Two or three TBLs a day is recommended I think.

                    What's wrong with Spectrum organic unrefined coconut oil? Hrm, it says expeller pressed, not cold pressed, so maybe that's it? They carry it at Sprouts and Walmart out here.

                      I have seen Spectrum in stores alot lately, the demand for coconut oil is certainly raising, not just for Primal, but for health conscience people that are looking for a medium chain fatty acid, as well as all the other health benefits it has!

                      I even have my English Bulldog on it, and have the bulldog club trying it out (1/4 tsp per 20 pounds if you want to help the coat and overall health--work your way up to 1/2 tsp per 20 lbs--if you go too fast you will have NASTY effects LOL)

                      Personally I buy from Tropical Traditions, and I get coconut chips at the same time (large peels of unsweetened coconut) Buy in bulk during their great sales, or buy on a free shipping day (or both if you are lucky!)
