    Yes, manna/butter/creamed coconut is the whole meat blended into a puree (like peanut butter). It's used as a raw spread. Nutritionally it's the same as coconut flakes--mostly oil with a little bit of fiber/sugar/protein.

    Coconut oil is 100% extracted fat used for cooking.

    So its soft enough to spread then? (the coconut cream I get is quite solid so I guess not the same)

    *scurrys off to add to my next order*

    The melting point of coconut is around 75F/24C so it can go either way depending on your kitchen. If mine is too soft I'll refrigerate for ~5 minutes. If it's too hard I'll set it near the tea kettle or run it under a hot faucet.

    For serious mouth bliss, spread some on a square of dark chocolate.

    It's usually hard as coconut oil in my house because I live on the coast and it's rarely warm enough to melt it. It's consistency is creamy like coconut cream solid. I sometimes use it to make curry.

    This may vary by brand. I live on the coast just a little south of SB but mine is about peanut butter texture.
