    Just wondering if coconut butter has the same benefits as coconut oil.

    Artisana's Coconut Butter = Heaven

    Oh boy. I just recently purchased coconut butter and have absolutely 100% fell in love with it. It is now my favorite form of coconut but I have to be careful because it is easy to consume too much. I would believe that coconut butter has more benefits than coconut oil. This is because coconut oil is pure fat and has no micronutrients. Coconut butter, on the other hand, is pure coconut meat and thus contains the vitamins and minerals that the whole coconut has. Eat coconut butter as you please and continue to use coconut oil for cooking.

    I'll be ordering the Artisana coconut butter as well... on a side note I already ordered the Cacao Bliss (cocoa+coconut butter). And I also have Nutiva's Coconut Manna - it's just freakishingly delicious.

    I'd love to know as well! I could eat LOADS of coconut butter! I make it myself and it is MUCH cheaper!

    I found coconut butter (I think we call it cocnut cream in the UK, is that the same thing?) to be like crack. It's too good, and I found an excellent brand (Biona) that tastes like white chocolate when refrigerated. I also tried mixing it with pure cacao nibs to make a kind of white chocolate, and that was also pure delight. Unfortunately it stopped me losing weight (I continued losing when I cut it out), so I will have to wait until I've reached my target before I return to its heavenly goodness.

    No idea, but apprently it's "the unsweetened dehydrated fresh meat of a mature fruit of coconut ground to a semi-solid white creamy paste." *dribble*

    Yes... I am afraid I will eat way too much to lose weight, so might have to stop buying it for awhile.

    I take unsweetened coconut and put it in the food processor for about 10 min. At the end I add a little coconut oil and keep pureeing until it turns into a nice paste.
