This raw, whole kernel virgin coconut oil is cold-pressed from fresh carefully dried organic coconuts. Because it is extracted from the whole coconut kernel (the white meat along with the brown rind), it has a delicious coconut smell and will also impart a mild coconut flavor to your cooking or baking. Versatile and healthy, this raw, unrefined, organic coconut oil can be used for stir-frying, sauces, baking and body care.
