ORGANIC COCONUT OIL, refined
Botanical Name: Cocos nucifera
Country of Origin: Philippines
Production: RBD (refined, bleached, and deodorized) Coconut oil is extracted from “Copra” the dried meat of mature coconuts harvested from the coconut palm. Instead of chemicals which are prohibited in organic production, this RBD oil is produced using charcoal filtering, followed by high-temperature steam injection to remove all volatile oil (flavor).
Qualities: without any coconut flavor or aroma, RBD coconut oil makes a very versatile oil and can be heated up to 400F.
Common Use: This affordable oil with neutral scent and flavor is the most commonly used commercial cooking oil worldwide.
Storage: Because of its high saturated fat content, coconut oil is slow to oxidize which renders it resistant to rancidification and can be kept at room temperature. For longterm storage, it can be refrigerated or frozen.

Excellent oil for soapmaking!
So happy to have found this coconut oil at OM. It’s perfect! I had been paying almost 2x as much for the identical product (same country of origin, organic and refined) at the local grocery store. OM has excellent value and products. Thanks!
