  • Non-fragrant, organic coconut oil brand?

    So my husband HATES the smell of coconut oil in his food. A year or so ago, I bought one (organic) which was not fragrant (in my husband's words, non-smelly!). I somehow cant seem to remember what brand/ type I bought.

    Any suggestions?

    the spectrum (I think thats it) brand I can get from my local grocery store really doesn't small much at all. Not like Nutiva.

      Any refined coconut oil will have no smell or taste.

        I use the spectrum, but as Zach says, I guess I need to be refined.

          Tropical Traditions is the BEST coconut oil. They have several grades, including ones with no coconut taste or smell. I believe their Green Label oil is the one you're looking for.

            LOL, I guess nutiva is super fragrant then. Sprectrum doesn't even come close in smell!

              Really????? must be just me. I got a refined by mistake and thought it tasted like engine oil........ actually threw it out.
              Started Primal June 2012 at 148.5lbs, and 5' 1", reached goal weight in 5 months.
              Lowest weight 93lbs - too thin. Now stable at around 100lbs much better weight for me at my age.
              Primal, minus eggs, dairy and a myriad of other allergens.

                Refined should have no taste at all... if it tasted like engine oil tossing it out (or returning it) was the right thing to do!

                Virgin should taste like coconut.
                Refined- no taste at all.

                Same thing in our house... I like the virgin on pretty much everything! Husband likes the virgin oil on sweet plantains, but on anything else it has to be the refined or he might notice the slight coconut scent/taste.

                And that's why I'm here eating HFLC Primal/Paleo.

                  If your husband doesn't like coconut oil, why use it? Use ghee. It's essentially dairy-free since the milk solids are removed, the smoke point is higher than coconut oil, it's much more nutritious and it's way more versatile. It can be used in everything from dessert to breakfast to heavy meat dishes. Refined coconut oil is going to be less nutritious (coconut oil isn't very nutritious anyway), so why use it? I'd much rather use grassfed butter, ghee, extra virgin olive oil or rendered animal fats than refined coconut oil any day.
                  Don't put your trust in anyone on this forum, including me. You are the key to your own success.

                    Get lard or tallow.
                    Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.

                      Yes to all you said but I would not COOK with olive oil...changes the flavour too much.

                        I must admit I am the same... Oddly I can drink a cup of peppermint tea with coconut oil (or kinda...gulp it down fast) but I don't like cooking with it because of the flavour it imparts to the food! Still I think coconut oil is awesome for you (when I started taking a spoonful in tea each day, my skin became super soft and much less dry!).

                          We do cook with ghee and butter. But sometimes, when he cooks, he wants oil, for whatever reason.

                          I am not arguing with him--because as a family, we have come a long way from grains to almost no grains at home. I am totally on a Primal diet, all of husband's and daughter's home meals are primal. Husband does it non-primal outside the house, but that his deal. I can live with it. Daughter's breakfast, school lunches, and dinners are primal, but during the weekend, if she wants pasta, husband fixes it for her. I am not having a nutritional discourse with him. Again, he is eating way healthier than say a year ago. And my daughter (touchwood) loves vegetables, meat, and fruit. She loves her almond butter on bread as well, but those requests are very rare.

                          There. I went on a tangent (!)
