Coconut Oil Brands:
There are many out there to choose from. One of the best and the one that I like to use personally is Nutiva Coconut oil. It is a good price and excellent quality. It is nothing but coconut oil. I love cooking with it because it is one of the oils that can be cooked with at a high heat and will not become carcinogenic.
