    Is there something wrong with my coconut oil?

    Primal Fuel
    Why's it doing that??

    For anyone not able to see the picture, there are white blobs in otherwise melted and clean coconut oil. It's a brand new jar, and when I poked the blobs, they weren't fuzzy like mold or anything. Does coconut oil go bad? The expiration date is January 2015.

    You might have what is known as a "whole kernel" coconut oil?

    Possibly the best coconut oil I have EVER had is a whole kernel brand:

    Dr. Bronner's Magic Soaps Retail Store Fair Trade & Organic Whole Kernel Virgin Coconut Oil - 14 oz.

    According to the label it says, "Our whole kernel VCO is expeller-pressed from fresh carefully dried coconut kernel with the inner skin left on, resulting in a more nutritious and nuttier-tasting oil."

    It does probably have small amounts of additional micronutrients, but that's probably not relevant to your overall nutrition. But I CAN tell the difference in taste. And yep, this stuff is absolutely epic.

    Coconut oil is not a pure chemical compound. It is composed of several different chain lengths that have different melting points. This is perfectly normal and natural.

    You won't regret it. Buy in bulk.

    The melting point of coconut oil is 76F. If you store it close to that temp, you'll get the cooler part solid and the warmer part liquid.

    In my cabinet in the winter with the heat set to 68F, my coconut oil is always solid. In the summer with the A/C set to 78F, it's liquid.

    So, knowing nothing at all about coconut oil (and not having any), do you just mix it every time you use it?

    Or, can you mix it once and keep it in the refrigerator? Or is that too cold?

    Thanks,
    Jason

    Fridge is fine, cabinet is fine, just keep it out of direct light.

    Coconut oil is one of the most stable fats you can get. It won't go bad very easily. Really, you'd almost have to purposely blast it at high heat for a long time in order to MAKE it go bad.

    Mixing not necessary. Ever. Just scoop out desired amount and use.
