It's important to select a high-quality coconut oil that has not been over processed. Nutiva is my favorite brand. Any coconut oil can be a bit pricey but, you know me, I like a bargain. I purchase mine on Amazon using gift certificates that I earn from Swagbucks.
Right now at Amazon you can get a Nutiva 15 oz two pack for only $13.74. This item also qualifies for FREE Super Saver shipping with a $25 purchase. You could buy 2 and end up with 60 ounces for only $27.48, which is an awesome price!
Whether you use coconut oil for health or cooking purposes, I think you will really like it. Incidentally, can anyone tell me something else that is high in lauric acid?
