Where To Buy Coconut Oil – 3 places you may not have thought of

Do you know where to buy coconut oil?

This 5000 year old ancient cooking oil is quickly becoming the delight of natural health buffs and those who are looking for a cheaper way to stay healthy. Coconut oil was once frowned upon by doctors because it is rich in saturated fats, which were considered unhealthy.

nutiva coconut oilNow we know that it’s trans fats, not saturated fats, that are the culprits behind many of today’s modern health problems.  Saturated fats like good unrefined virgin coconut oil are increasingly being seeing as a natural choice for a cooking oil.

If you’d like to add virgin coconut oil to your daily diet, you’ve got to find it first.  Many grocery stores carry it, but some are still lagging behind the times.  If your store doesn’t have coconut oil for sale, here are three unexpected places you can buy it.

  • Your local health food store or co-op.  These stores are actually great places to find organic coconut oil, which is usually considered the best. Organic oil is produced from coconuts that have been grown without pesticides or chemicals, so you won’t be getting any bad stuff in with your oil.  Depending on the size jar you buy, it might seem a little expensive, but a little goes a long way.
  • Online. While we love recommending our own Nutiva Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil products, there are many online retailers that now sell Nutiva and other brands. Be sure to get organic coconut oil, as you don’t want a bunch of additives or processing agents in your coconut oil. If you give us a try, note that we offer free shipping on orders of $30 or more, no coupon or discount code required.
  • Buying Clubs. You may find a local food buying club that offers coconut oil. You can often get the oils at a competitive price. These are good oils to use in cooking, since they’re usually unrefined, which is always best. In fact, you can use coconut popcorn oil for popping the best popcorn you’ve ever tasted.

    What is the difference in
    unrefined virgin coconut oil
    refined coconut oil
    i was told to use “pure coconut oil ” ” non hydrogenated ” but don’t know where to get it and don’t want to get the wrong thing

    • The Nutiva Team says:

      Hi Ed,
      Our coconut oil is unrefined and certainly not hydrogenated. Many companies submit their coconut oil product through various bits of processing, depending on the company. Some of this processing involves chemicals and other unsavory practices.

      Our coconut oil is extra-virgin, organic and never refined. Cheers!

      • Processing does not always mean that the product is “tainted,” and everything in the world is made of chemicals. Gold is processed with cyanide. Salt is the result of a chemical reaction between an explosive and a poison. That’s not to say that there aren’t unscrupulous practices taking place in mass industry, because there certainly are, but you’d have to know exactly how things are done to determine just how savory a processed item is or isn’t. Also, in this case the more pure coconut oil would be refined, non hydrogenated oil.

  6. DD Osborne says:

    Hello, is the oil in glass jars, are the trees from where they came from sustainable forests and not destroying the environment? and if they are in plastic jars, are they free from carcinogens? With thanks.

      Hi there, thanks for your question. Social and environmental responsibility is a core part of Nutiva’s culture and business. Our coconuts come from plantations in the Philippines and we have long time relationships with our partners there. In addition, no deforestation occurs when harvesting the coconuts. Our Virgin Coconut Oil is available in both recyclable glass and food grade, BPA-free plastic. Thank you!
