Coconut Oil

I bought some Expeller Pressed Coconut Oil last week and tasted it for the first time. It is awful! Tastes just like 30w motor oil. Anyone else tried it and found the taste is simply bad?

  1. My daughter got some to mix into a sunburn cream. Never tasted it.

  2. I buy coconut oil that tastes like fresh coconuts. I get mine from Azure Standard Co-op, but there are other places. Should smell like fresh coconut, too.

    1. Mine has no coconut odor.
      My expiration date is "Feb 2019" and its seal was intact.

    2. Well, you could make soap with it. Next time, go for coconut oil that is cold pressed, not expeller pressed. Now you know that not all coconut oil is notcreated equally.

  3. Weird!

    I use it when I make popcorn -- tastes pretty good that way. Never tried it by itself.

  4. I use different brands (what's on sale is my fave) but they're all unrefined, virgin, and work great. Use it in a brown rice, black bean, garlic, coconut slow cooker delight. Now I'm hungry..

  5. Tropical Traditions Gold Label is the very best and is therapetic. It is made the traditional way (hundreds of years) in the Phillipines. Azure Standard also has some very decent coconut oil for a cheaper price.

  6. I don't think it is a good thing to eat, not good for you. However, it will be great on my skin!

  7. I have researched coconut oil for the past fifteen to twenty years and have several books about it and consume it regularly. It is indeed a very good thing to eat if you buy an organic, quality oil.

  8. We fry almost exclusively with coconut oil or coconut oil and butter combination. Coconut oil is wonderful for health if you use virgin cold pressed. Scrambled eggs made with coconut oil is wonderful!

  9. Coconut oil is near solid at room temp, becomes liquid in cooking pan or any hot food or beverage. Avoid storing in the 'fridge, though. I mostly buy my coconut products on line at Amazon, where my Prime gets me free shipping.
    I am an 80 year old widower, just getting in to the healthy living way, which of late includes lots of cold pressed coconut oil. I use a couple of tsp's in the frying pan for my 3 or 4 scrambled eggs instead of traditional oils and such - licking the spoon clean (tastes OK). When cooking if finished, the eggs seem to have soaked up most of the coconut oil, leaving the frypan very clean - I wipe dry and hang it back up.
    Also, when I received an email tip that I should put coconut oil in my Death Wish Coffee. With coconut milk and coconut sugar, the coffee was OK, but the experience seemed akin to downing a quart of #30 oil. The taste was OK, thus I continue to use coconut products such as coconut oil, coconut milk (tastes really good), coconut water and such. And, of course, Raw Honey, Turmeric, Ginger, Cinnamon, and other such stuff. For a burger and fries lover, this change of cooking and lifestyle takes a bit of getting used to.
