Are both types of coconut oil paleo and can be used for food? Google gives a lot of contradictory explanations.

No, that's for virgin oil only. For extra virgin they allow extra virgins.

I believe that for extran virgin they only allow virgins in the manufacturing process; but that's the only difference ;).

I think they're the same thing. There's no such thing as extra virgin coconut oil apparently. I think companies just use it because it sounds better.

I don't know much about the process of coconut oil production but here's a quote from Marks Daily Apple:

"A word of warning about coconut oils labeled as extra virgin. Experts note that there is no other ??? or more virginal ??? process of extracting oil from coconuts and the concept of the ???extra??? is nothing more than a marketing ploy."

Here's the page I pulled that from: http://www.marksdailyapple.com/coconut-oil-health-benefits/#axzz2DVvy1tUa

Coconut oil is excellent btw
