What you should pay attention to
Whether you’ve tried using coconut oil before, or you want to give it a try, here’s what you need to know, in order to choose high quality, organic product that has been processed without the use of any additives or chemicals.
How it should look
Occasionally, there may be some light yellow colour mixed in, which is totally normal. Yellow color may naturally remain in the product, as the dried coconut is not treated with sulfites or other bleaching agents.
How it should taste and smell
Flavour and smell are very important when ensuring that the coconut oil has not been processed with chemicals. Organic coconut oil should have a mild flavour and aroma that doesn’t alter the taste of the food that is being cooked. So, if the oil has a strong aroma, or has no aroma at all, you’ll know that it’s not pure.
One of those small but crucial decisions could be switching to coconut oil for your cooking and baking needs. Find out what it’s like to enjoy your food even more!
