    Non-coconut tasting coconut oil

    Primal Fuel
    I used to buy the Spectrum Refined CO. I couldn't taste any coconut flavor at all and my fiance, who HATES coconut, was fine cooking with it. The one retailer around here (WalMart of all places...) stopped carrying it. I purchased another brand from our local co-op and even though it is advertised as "mild tasting" the coconut flavor really comes through. We use this oil mostly for frying veggies, eggs and meats and even I don't really love the taste it gives the food. Any suggestions for brands that you really can't taste? Thanks

    you can order spectrum refined online. We have an amazon prime account and get free 2 day shipping. It totally pays for itself with all the stuff we're constantly buying.

    I read somewhere that refined coconut oil does not taste nearly as coconutty as virgin coconut oil.

    Of course not - as deodorization is part of the refining process. Personally I stay away from that stuff though Coconut Oil Health Benefits | Mark's Daily Apple
    If you don't like the taste of coconut oil, why not cook with butter, or lard/tallow?

    I second Zilog's suggestion to use lard or tallow instead.

    I use Nutiva. Two 54-ounce jars for about $55 on Amazon, lasts me three months or so. I use it in cooking, bulletproof coffee, etc. I can't taste the coconut, although you might want to try a smaller size first to taste for yourself.

    Why buy refined coconut oil? If you're buying refined coconut oil, you're losing most of the benefits from using coconut oil. At that point, it's more healthful to just use butter or extra virgin olive oil.

    Vitacost Extra Virgin Certified Organic Coconut Oil -- 54 fl oz - Vitacost

    This is equal in quality to Nutiva, A LOT less expensive and frequently goes on sale for ~$15. I said goodbye to Nutiva a long time ago and couldn't be happier.

    Tropical Traditions expeller pressed coconut oil doesn't taste coconutty. There seems to have been some problems with stolen credit cards in ordering from them lately(they've claimed to have upped their security), but you can get it at Amazon.

    Amazon.com: Tropical Traditions Expeller Pressed Coconut Oil, Non-Certified - 32-oz. glass- 2-Jar Pack: Grocery & Gourmet Food

    For those who knock the refined coconut oil, sometimes you want something for high heat cooking, which butter and olive oil do not give you. I don't always like the virgin CO flavor in savory dishes.
