Coconut Oil in UK?

Answered on September 12, 2014

For you Paleos in the UK that eat lots of coconut oil, whats your brand of choice?

I've tried 2 brands (Tiana & Coconut Connections) and Coconut Connections has been the best so far, its smooth & creamy, not waxy like Tiana, it generally all tastes the same once its melted into food but straight from the spoon coconut connections oil is the best tasting for sure, it has a creamy rich flavor, but its quite pricey, about ??15 for 440ml. They claim to use a unique extraction process.

Im just wanting to try some other brands to make sure im not wasting my ?? on this expensive oil so some suggestions are welcome

Cheers!

I love the one by Biona, it's raw and organic (great for eating off a spoon!) - it's pretty pricey online (tho the 800g is at an OK price on Amazon - but it comes in a plastic jar, not glass). I get 400g glass jar kind from two of my local health food shops for ??8.

I'm not keen on the Tiana brand.

I've had it from Coconut Connections and Coconoil - can't say I noticed a difference between the two, though I'm not fond of the taste/texture of any coconut oil. I'm currently in Bangkok and have tried a few here - still don't enjoy it.

If you buy it in bulk (10 kg for example) from Coconoil it becomes a lot cheaper.

I buy coconoil, I think you can get it on amazon or if you go straight to their website they usually have 3 for 2 offers on. 3x500g tubs last me months!

Holland and Barrett Perfectly Pure is now organic approved and they are doing buy 1 get 1 half price at the moment - its £14.99 for 453g. It is also newly packaged in a glass jar, not like the plastic one shown on the website. I like it but I've not tried the brands you mention.
